Watching the Sunset Over the Val de Grace


I'm leaving for Paris today.  I leave you with a  very special image that I've been saving.

A very special image, I agree. I always find touching to guess the adult in the little child... I hope you see what I mean.

I understand why you kept it; it's the nicest of them all! Thanks to the beautiful Eva herself of course, but also thanks to the way you captured her!!

It is a very nice image, Virginia. It says it all about being a photography. I guess the subject counts for something after all.

Have fun over there with your camera.

Safe travel Virginia .. and what a lovely image, I am sure you've got it printed/framed ... what a memory for you, your daughter and granddaughter to cherish!

Maya said...

Harriet said...

Beautiful capture.

I hope this trip is even more wonderful than your last!

Safe travels.

She is so cute and that is a really great picture!

I might be pretending to be a queen retiring to her bed chamber? Or maybe a bride selecting the most beautiful veil?

I might be captivated by the billowing curtains and their promise of a refreshing breeze?

I might be contemplating the horizon and dreaming of the faraway places that I have not yet seen?

I might be concealing myself for a wonderful game of hide and seek?

There is the possibility, of course, that I am merely looking out of a window?.....

What a soft and lovely photo. Can't wait to see more like these! Once again, I'm jealous that you're headed back to Paris. I hope this trip yields many new, fun and interesting activities and many more wonderful photos!

Virginia, You have truly captured the beautiful innocence of childhood with this picture of Eva. One of your best! I know this is only a kick-off for many more to come on this trip.

The best images are always the private collection the memories, nit the sellers. Even I subscribe to that as a selling photogtrapher.

My toes are on Paris soil! Had a grand flight over in 1st class and arrived at 11:45 am. Spent the next 3 hours waiting for them to find my luggage. Not yet. More info to follow. HOpefully good!
