Un carrousel?



At first glance this could be a rather sporty red Peugeot moto (with pink accents) 
alongside a poster advertising soap from Reims. 
With a longer view one sees a carrousel
(with counterclockwise rotation)
zoom-zoom!




(Joyeux anniversaire, ma chère Holly!)

Nearly like in a dream :-)

The motor bike looks like its about to rev it's engine and break free from the set counterclockwise rotation of the carousel.

A carousel with a fun and quirky twist! A beautiful capture, Genie ~ I love both images.

Shell Sherree said...

I wouldn't have noticed it was a carousel when you didn't show the second photo. Love the first one.

Holly said...

Merci for the birthday wishes! Last year it wasn't the red zoom-zoom but red coat running all thru Paris in the snow. I think I will use that rocket ship on the right to wisk me over there today to celebrate with a caramel tarte and a couple rides around the Carrousel before heading to "our" market & church for the processional. Sigh. :-) A girl can daydream on her way to work... and then make her own macarons & tartes (using her french Eric Keyser cookbook!)

I would have not noticed the carousel had you not shown the second photo Genie.

I love the advertisement for soap...how cute. Why is it that the French always know how to put together such great ads?

Sweet!

A carousel with motorcycles, that's cool.

Starman said...

I like the thing that looks like a little trolley.

Jack said...

Nice. The local carousels all seem to have horses, not motorcycles. (Happy b-day, Holly.)

TheChieftess said...

Nicely done!!! I like the close up best!!!

Alexa said...

How cool is that? I know some little boys (and some big ones, come to think of it) who would just love to ride on that carrousel. Happy birthday to Holly!

Wonderful shots Genie. I thought the first shot was one taken on the street.

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

A fabulous shot .......position, position, position.
Bon weekend.

I wish we could all hop on that rocket and take off on a girls night out to celebrate Holly's birthday in the City of Lights! Just beautiful ... I am ready to go for a ride.
