Girl talk



These two petites filles were captured having a chat
while the boys were chasing each other in Jardins du Trocadero...
all in the shadow of la Tour Eiffel.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Typique: Les filles discutent (et sérieusement). Les garçons courrent dans le jardin! ;-) Très mignon. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Oh, how gorgeous. I wonder what they're discussing so seriously and secretively.

Kellie @ Sasse Avenue said...

So serious! Planning their weekend maybe?? They remind me of my girls chatting together. Cute!

Pet said...

Don't they do the same in Mobile? I wonder.

Joe said...

You caught a wonderful moment here Genie. It does make you wonder what they are nattering about.

Viennese Girl Vreni said...

They seem to have a very serious conversation. Are they talking about la mode, to which pâtisserie they will go afterwards or already about boys?

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I love that girls start communicating at such an early age, would be such fun to know what they are discussing so intently, love this photo Genie it says so, so much!

biebkriebels said...

They have a serious talk, you captured them on the right moment, very good. Boys don't talk at that age I think, they have to run around to get lost of their energy.

Great picture and the serious face of the girl that we can see. Very nice

JM said...

What a lovely capture! So very cute.

Louis la Vache said...

Mignon!

Julie said...

They are very much in each other's space, yes. They be sharing 'gossip'.

Louise said...

Clearly a serious situation going on there! Such a lovely image Genie.

Kate said...

This looks like a very serious engagement! Love the stance of the girl on the left.

Paris Paul said...

Oh what a precious shot! The one girl's pose is priceless. Definitely a real Parisienne in the making!

Virginia said...

Aww, it reminds me of Eve and her new Paris BFF Chloe when they met in that little playground. They still right each other! Great capture!

This picture points out one of the glaring faults of the French. Do you see how close they are? They will do the same for the rest of their lives.

Priceless Genie!

Janey and Co. said...

Such beautiful children. I think the little one with her back to us is showing the other that she lost a tooth...

Κωστής Τζαγκαράκης said...

Really serious talk between them Genie.
Thank you for your visit to my blog.

Fábio Martins said...

Very nice catch. The little girls talk about what? little boys? :-)

this is Belgium said...

Can you not just imagine them 10 years later??
This shot is so perfect that I wish that someone who knows them would see this picture and contact you.

Loree said...

That's girls for you :)

Clueless in Boston said...

Interesting body language. Everything is so serious at that age.

Halcyon said...

Looks like a very important conversation.

Birdman said...

I'd fall over overhearing them, I bet. Youth is wasted on the young? Maybe not.

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Genie - if you ever decide to paint - this photo would be a perfect painting! I love the way Paris looks to you!

Jack said...

That is so cute. In those postures, they have to be little girls. Are there secret classes for little girls?

Kris said...

Beautiful! The one with her back facing reminds me of Isabella. I can just picture her doing exactly that...Talking! LOL

louciao said...

This is precious, in the very best sense of the word! And universal in its essence, in spite of being taken in the shadow of the Eiffel tower.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I think that Pet posed an interesting question. Could this just be any two little girls, even in Mobile, Alabama, USA? Well, yes. The fact is that children will be children and they were in a group playing that April day just as they might anywhere else in the world. "In the shadow of la Tour Eiffel" was of no matter to them at all.

Perhaps Janey was correct in suggesting that the one with her back to us was pointing out the space where a baby tooth had been previously.

Wouldn't you love to hear their conversation en français. I was not close enough to listen in, but close enough to verify their French language.

I do not know about "secret classes for girls" but these two needed no lessons.

Children at play without a care in the world... the way it should be.

Bises,
Genie

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Oh, Fábio, I think that they may talk about boys, but probably not these two on this day... Just give them a few years!

Bibi said...

The little girl on the left's stance is soooo French, as is her classic little face.

Stan said...

"So, how do you like the color of my new lipstick?" This is an absolutely precious image!!! B & W rules--

Alexa said...

I like Janey's scenario too—and the fact that they have no problem with a lack of personal space. Great shot, Genie!

Des Pipelettes !
Très belle photo Genie, en plus en noir et blanc !
