Parc de Monceau


Marie and I came across this scene in April at Parc de Monceau. I am not sure that I understood what was going on here but...

Hey, save some for me!

Oh, yes! Save a sip for me! I just finished my glass of wine for the evening -- wouldn't mind another sip or two!! Fun capture, Genie, mon amie! Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Haha :) Just drinking wine, nothing special :D

beau gosse said...

Cou cou, Genie! She is drinking a Cidre Biologique...maybe from Naturalia?!? Tchin-tchin! Thanks for the drôle shot!

Dianne said...

Ah! so it's organic cider - yes I'd have a sip of that for sure!
Have a safe week-end Genie. xx

Malyss said...

They seem to be a mother and her two daughters...Drinking cider, even organic , is not the best way to fight the heat..

Louise said...

Maybe they forgot the glasses?

Nice shot of the mother and daughters I suppose.

I'm not sure a mother who takes her daughters to the park to get drunk is the best role model, but at least they make an intriguing photo.

Ninny said...

Well, let's just pas the whole bottle around....save a drop for me, LOL. Love your pictures of people, Genie. And congrats on your one year anniversary. I love your blog!

Party on!

In my part of Canada it's illegal to drink alcohol in public place like this. The government are prudes. The one in the middle looks like she forgot her laptop.

...and a good time was had by all!

Great shot, Genie!

Ha, ha! I remember this ... Wasn't it a bit early in the day to be imbibing??? Not very lady-like in my opinion ... They should have been drinking from smaller bottles ;-0 -- it's more discreet. Bon weekend toute le monde!

Une attitude pas très élégante de la part de cette jeune fille...

Great shot!! Merci

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Yes the 'mother' does look like she is typing on an invisible keyboard haha! Is organic cider like strong alcohol? Hope you are having a wonderful weekend Genie.

Cezar and Léia said...

hehehe funny but not elegant at all! :)
I like the reflections on the glasses!
Cool shot!

Amanda said...

great shot, genie!

.....and is it the angle of the foto, or is the boiveuse sporting a baby bump?

Myself, I find myself captivated by the red trench. Divine!

Jack said...

Today I am going to give myself permission not to try to figure it out. I will just see and enjoy the scene.

Cildemer said...

Oh yes! Organic cider! I want a sip too;o)
Thanks for sharing your wonderful shot, Genie;o)

Hugs and happy weekend****

Another great photo, love it.

Alexa said...

This could be my daughters and me (sort of)—only we'd probably have a bottle of Champagne (and some macarons to go with)! Nice capture, mon amie.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I thought that this was a mom and two daughters as well. Merci, beau gosse, for identifying the beverage. I think that they pulled it out of a bag and we imagined that it was not allowed in this park. Hey, at least they were not on the lawn!

Thank you for all the comments today. I have a house full of people this weekend and have not had time to visit and comment on blogs.

Lapin Agile, thank you for stopping in and for your comment. I hope that you will come often.

Bon weekend, all!

I lived just next to the Parc Monceau for a couple of years, back in the 80, rue de Logelbach, literally 20 meters away. 30 years ago, the parc was always full of British nannies, mostly working for some ambassador's families. Big British meeting point. Many good memories... Used to run in the parc with my neighbor Enrico Macias, a famous singer from that time.

Enjoying the moment!

Stan said...

Neat group portrait!!! Yes, definitely mother and daughter(s)--I can see the similarity in their ears -- something I am especially attuned to --lol. And, look, a real blonde!!! What interesting looking benches -- reminds me of roll-top desks.

The pause that refreshes!
