ARC de Triomphe in fog

Photographer: Edward Clark

Year: 1946

The ARC de Triomphe is a monument that stands in the middle of the Place Charles de Gaulle. Inaugurated in 1836, it honors those that lost their lives in the Napoleonic and French Revolutionary Wars. Most photos of the ARC are taken during the day when there is foot and vehicular traffic and when the sun can reveal all of the details, but this veil makes it more interesting.
