Must be a French girl


After posting the French-girl-wanna-be dressed in a red coat,
I thought that I would show you the genuine article.

Jardin du Luxembourg on a Sunday afternoon is a guaranteed treat for people-watchers and photographers.  Virginia, Holly, and Isabelle joined me for an action-clicking afternoon.  This little girl was running toward the large octagonal pool to watch the action of sailboats or perhaps the toy motor boats shown by Virginia here.

There was no shortage of action in all of Jardin du Luxembourg,
and I will have many more photos to show you in future posts.

What a delightful capture, Genie! Reminds me of when my daughters were little -- they aren't French, but they did like to explore -- everything! Have a wonderful week, mon amie!

Hugs
Sylvia

So cute. No this one has got to be French.

hee hee....
Les Jardins de Luxembourg are a delight for all children - including (ahem) children of «Louis'» age, French or not! (Yes, «Louis» refuses to grow up!)

Definitely. I remember visiting these gardens with my kids when they were small. They wanted to ask French people everything, so I had my son repeat many times, "C'est combien?" since he wanted to ask how much it cost to rent the boats. He went over to the man, said something, then returned and asked me, "What does 'Cinq francs' mean?" Long time ago for that price!

I´m glad to see some colour on a french girl!

A delightful jeune fille. With French class at such a tender age. Thanks.

Peter Olson said...

Almost the same class as the red-coat-girl on your previous post! (Of course to be confirmed in a couple of years!) :-)

I must have missed her while I was capturing the motor boat kiddos. So cute!

Little Red Riding Hood gets a whole new story. Elle est mignon.

She must be very interested in what is going on there. It seems to me she is running.

Must be! People-watching in the Jardin du Luxembourg is the best—thanks for sharing, Genie.

So sweet! How adorable! Love how the bottom of her jeans have a red stripe in them to match her coat! Ooh la la!

Precious shot -- and you caught her right in mid-stride. Makes me nostalgic for the times our three daughters were growing up -- sigh -- Looking forward to the continuation of the garden series!! Hugs, Stan
