Le Petit Garçon


While the other children ran through the park
or zipped around on scooters, 
this little boy played happily alone.

Darling little boy. Love the way he is dressed. Casual, yet perfectly coordinated. Parisian children are always fun to watch. He looks like he might be playing with the shadow of the playset. Great shot, Genie. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

He seems to have a wonderful imagination. What will he grow up to do, I wonder.

Some children are happy to have a quiet moment to themselves.. I just had the 'happy birthday' song sung to me by my two year old 'great nephew', it made my day, adorable!!Beautiful picture Genie.

He is adorable! I love the way he is reaching out to some invisible source of entertainment and almost looks like he is ready to pounce. His concentration is almost as superb as his fashion flare! Fantastic candid portrait!

How sweet! I wonder what he was looking at? He's a "cutie".

Cute. It looks like he is playing with the shadows.

A creative mind at work - dancing with his shadow. "We're gonna rumble tonight, we're gonna have us a ball-l-l-l!"

Malyss said...

he's in his own world, no better place to be happy..

VP said...

Lovely portrait, he looks quite content by himself...

Alexa said...

Probably a self-sufficient only child, used to amusing himself. Tellement mignon, Genie!

Starman said...

Hmmmm!

Sometimes, playing by yourself is just the way to go!!!

And what gorgeous red hair!!!

And such a little cutie! I have to admire the little guys that go off an do their own thing. Leaders not followers:)

winterludes said...

i love this cutie : so concentrating on something the others can't see. it brings me back years ago. i often photograph shadows of my dolls in the "bridge-filet" of the square trousseau.

Ninny said...

He's a cute little guy! Who knows what caught his attention, but he's definitely looking at something. Or else trying to get his balance on little toddler legs!

Paris Paul said...

Ah, to be at an age where I could play with shadows. I think I have a new plan for tomorrow. Thanks, Genie!

Erika said...

Il est beau et sympa , le petit enfant!!!

Stepping into ones own shadow - character building.

Many thanks for your comments today, and tomorrow I have an adult portrait and an ongoing story to share.

It is getting closer to the weekend... (petit yay!)

He's quite the cutie pie. With quite the sartorial flair.
