Year in Review 2014

Now that we are at the end of the year, I always take the time to have a peek at the assignments I have photographed throughout the year. It’s always a great chance to see what I have been doing and what events I have covered. Here is a selection of some of my favorite images in 2014, Merry Christmas.

Happy Birthday Eiffel Tower

March 31, 2014 marks the 125th birthday of the grand Eiffel Tower that opened in 1889. The 1,063 food tower gets 6 million visitors a year, including myself and my son earlier this year. It’s an amazing structure.
