Celebrating 125th Birthday Of Eiffel Tower – The Symbol Of Love

5:00 am 2 Apr, 2014

Symbol of Love, the Eiffel Tower, turned 125 yesterday. A structure which was built in two years, two months, and five days officially completed on March 31st, 1889. To commemorate its birthday and exclusive to TIME, Paris-based photographer Lauren Fleishman has been trying to capture the tower in a way it’s never been shot before. But it wasn’t easy for him. Feels like yesterday has come and go but nothing has changed its beauty for us. We have compiled some beautiful images for you that might recall the wind once again to blow your hair.
