Un Dimanche au Dodo Manège


In June, Genie, Marie, Mary and I took a little detour to the Jardin des Plantes. Last summer,despite two trips to the gardens, Melissa and the children and I never found this special carrousel, but Genie knew the way! This one is a bit different, the animals are all extinct! We were charmed by the most adorable children enjoying a Sunday afternoon with their families. Moving targets are hard to capture, but I liked this beautiful little girl, sur la girafe!

Virginia, I think that you captured her beautifully with that sweet little smile. This is (so far) my favorite carrousel in Paris. I wish that Eva and Davis (and Melissa) had been there to ride these magical animals!

What a great capture of my fave Paris carrousel, V! Now you can take les petits enfants there next time you're all in Paris ensemble.

Alexa,
It is just so special. I"m sorry the we didn't get them on this one but never fear, they rode the one at Luxembourg and at la Tour many times! I love Paris carrousels!!

Not your typical carousel shot ... very unique and enchanting. Lots of joy and life in the shot - very special indeed.
