Quai de Jemmapes - la petite fille



I caught her running along Canal Saint-Martin, full of energy and light on her feet...

I am running with her spirit into a delightfully long holiday weekend!  Join me!


bon weekend!

Well, I may not, probably not light on my feet and lacking in energy, but I can definitely run with her spirit -- and yours, mon amie! Do have a beautiful holiday weekend!

Hugs

Je trouve fascinant cette photo avec ce merveilleux mouvement et la boule du portail qui se situe juste au-dessus de son bras et qu'on pourrait assimiler à un ballon... Intéressant.
Gros bisous
Je vous souhaite une très bon et intense week-end.
Merci pour votre très gentil commentaire.

Sometimes I think that Paris only should be photographed in B and W, never in colors.

Kate said...

Everything about her speaks joy, energy, and enthusiasm. Love your choice of B&W.

This girl is adorable!

Wonderful image Genie and enjoy your long holiday weekend.

Hello Genie:
This is indeed a superb image and one which confirms that so very often black and white photography can, and does, steal a march on colour.

What is so appealing here is the look of determination which we glimpse on the face combined with a steadfast expression. Wonderful.

We very much hope that you will have a really enjoyable and restful weekend.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

This child with her parent close by was full of life and laughter. This was one of my favorite photos for the look of intensity on her face... She rules the world!
