Dans l'ombre de la Tour Eiffel



This sweet trio was seen on the lawn (la pelouse) in front of la Tour Eiffel prior to the celebration of 14 juillet. They were a bit early for the fireworks.

Les Enfants in Paris and France are so beautifully dressed.
They look keen x And who wouldnt be sitting there are waiting for the sky to light up--magic!

I completely agree with Suzi, French kids are always beautifull dressed. No wonder, with all those elegant mums!

Richard said...

Ces enfants sont adorables. Je prends surtout plaisir à admirer les petites couettes de cheveux des petites filles. C'est tellement mignon! Il ne faudrait pas qu'elles grandissent!...
Bonne journée, Genie!

you've composed this delightful trio perfectly. we see not one face full on and yet we understand their eager anticipation because of the way you've caught them.

Oh so sweet and cute! What a precious capture of la vie quotidien.

Harriet said...

So very precious! I love the composition - much better than a 'posed shot'.

I always enjoy reading Richard's comments, but he has thrown me with the word "couette".

Halcyon said...

They look a little overdressed to me. But definitely cute!

suzanneberry said...

genie, you have the ability to catch the most esthetically pleasing compositions...this is just precious!

The lawn was a playground that day for families and children. There was plenty of space but these three were precious huddled together in a very small space.

Most of the kids that day were in very casual clothing but these were "dressed." (Note the running shoes)

Harriet, "les petites couettes de cheveux" that Richard noted are the little ponytails in the girls' hair.

Malyss said...

Just what I wanted to know! How to say "couettes" in english. Poneytails! that's funny!

Sylvia K said...

Adorable little girls and what a delightful capture, Genie! Love how dressed up they are -- and with running shoes/sandals! Ah, memories of my four at that age! Hope your week is going well, mon amie! Enjoy!

Hugs,
Sylvia

Adorable! Love the hairdos!

Lovely capture, Genie. I'm always terrified to shoot candids of children for fear of hostility from parents/guardians.
