Parc de Monceau - XVI



Parc de Monceau


While waiting on a park bench to meet a blog friend and sa petite,
I watched this young fellow riding in circles. 

He was so fast that it was a challenge to capture him in action...
 and in focus!


zoom-zoom!

What a delightful capture, Genie! Reminds me of my four when they were that age and they were FAST!! Wasn't hard staying then chasing all of them!! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

Of course he was fast, Genie. C'est un petit parisien... and as everyone knows, "Petit parisien deviendra grand!" :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Hello Genie:
You should have asked for a 'go'. Then you too could have gone 'zoom zoom' which, we think, would have been great fun.

He seems very focused... I love the colour of his vehicle.

Joe said...

He looks in a world of his own. Wouldn't it be nice to be lost in thought like this.

I think you did capture him at one of his cutest pics.

Earnest play time, beautifully captured!

The little ones can be very speedy, can't they! His set of wheels is a lovely shade of mint. The red seat and handlebars probably make it go faster.

I bet he was having a lot of fun.

He looks so sweet, well captured.

Love the colors of his scooter. We still have that grey dust stuck to the wheels of Florence's stroller from that day. We must do it again soon ;)

Love the colors in this photo. Oh the joy of childhood -- especially when one happens to be a child in Paris.

Il est mignon! I really appreciate your series of children.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Jane and Lance, oh I would not have to be invited more than once and I would have given a spin around the park myself!

Yes, it was Nicola and her precious Florence that we were meeting that day!

Danielle, thank you for "le petit bolide" which is so very expressive - and I learned a new French word.

Shell, the "mint" with red reminds me of vintage items for the kitchen. I think that was a color combination that is making a comeback.

So glad that you all liked le petit bolide sur ses 2 roues!

Bises,
Genie

PS - I also found "comme un bolide dans la rue" which showed a translation of "like a bat out of hell" - yes, I wrote that one down too!

How fun! For the child and for you. And challenging. Children are fast and focused when they play. :D
