Manège du Parc - Parc de Monceau



Manège du Parc


This fascinating carousel in Parc de Monceau seems a bit lonely
 in the fading light of a gray autumn day

Have a great weekend, Genie! :)

I guess all carousels have to snooze sometime. It's a very sweet little one, isn't it, Genie!

Not to worry. Little school children will be for a turn on "le manège" as soon as they come out late afternoon, if things have not changed in Paris... -- Veronique

It might be lonely but it still makes a wonderful photo!

Hello Genie:
The carousel does have a wonderfully surreal quality in this fading light. Somehow, there is an air of sadness which is totally in keeping with the weather. A beautifully atmospheric photograph!

I can see one happy rider almost hidden on the right side near the center. Wonder if he skipped school?

It does—but I'm sure it sees lots and lots of petits Parisiens when the sun is up. It's a beauty!

Oh, it seems like one could ride into a magical alternate universe just by stepping on board...

It wants to have many children enjoy it! It's beautiful.. :) Carousels are meant to have many child friends or they are lonesome..
