Parc de Monceau - des amis



Parc de Monceau


Two friends without a care in the world.
We should be more like them.


 Maman can worry about the limestone dust all over their clothes.
Weird, but I have a fondness for that chalk...
 a reminder of good times in Paris.

You've captured a wonderful moment in time Genie!
Skipping merrily about - kids know how to have fun.

I adore her little blouse and the jumper wrapped casually at her neck!

This is such a wonderful image.

I do look back fondly on my childhood, but am also fully aware that things change and we all have to grow up and leave behind that childlike freedom at some stage..

Hello Genie:
Ah, to return to the age of innocence. What a delightful portrait and you are so right about the chalk dust, clearly visible here scuffed up along the way. The state those shoes will be in!!

So cute together and a little fashionista with her jumper around her shoulders.

Reminds me of the famous picture of Eugene Smith children Juanita and Patrick in Life magazine of 1946. But yours is of course completely today with it vibrant colors and movement. Well done.

Delightful Genie.

I'm very much looking forward to my visit to Parc Monceau soon and hope to see the same visions as you do. Sorry our paths won't cross while there.

I miss being around small children on a regular basis now that our kids are grown and our grandson lives far away from us. Watching children live as they do without a care always makes me want to live more simply. Great capture Genie!

Melissa said...

Such a joyous image. It has a strong emotional impact!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Oh the joy of youthful energy and excitement.. I still feel the excitement Genie, I just don't have quite as much energy haha! J'adore cette image.

Joie de vivre! :-)

Harriet said...

I love how you caughter her "pig tails" flying in the air!

Jack said...

Wouldn't you love to be a kid again?

Randy said...

Oh those carefree days.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Jack, I think that I will always be a kid, an older kid, but a kid just the same.

Merci beaucoup, 'Tsuki et Danielle pour tes remarques sur mon post.

JudyMac, you will love it and I wish that we were not going to be crossing the Atlantic in opposite directions!

M, let's go!

Shane and Marianne, she is quite the fashion plate with her style.

Bises,
Genie
