Watch Your Step!


This gorgeous carrousel was in front of the Hôtel de Ville during the holidays. It's even more magical at night.  This petit garçon needed a helping hand coming down from the upper level.

This is so sweet! Do you ever take an email address or something from parents to send shots like this? I've done that on occasion - a lovely surprise gift for parents. By the way, the light/shadow composition in this is really nice.

Oh how clever you are to have spotted this little man, he's so gorgeous!
I bet he thinks he's in Fairyland.

The carrousel was so magical in the dark with the lights, I thought I was as well!

Adorable, V! Navigating those steep steps must feel like coming down from Everest to him. Is this a double-decker carrousel?

Ginnie said...

What a priceless image, Virginia. I LOVE carousels, so this is delightful, like looking through the eyes of a child.

We're so under-privileged in South Florida. I had never seen a 'double-decker' merry-go-round until Paris.

This photo is just magical! I bet this boy's mother would love this shot.

I've been so busy this week, I've just now scrolled through your week of photos. I just love it when I see a scene and know exactly where it is. It puts a smile on my face.

I hope you too were able to get up on horseback and take a ride around in the cool Paris winter air ? Very invigorating, no doubt...
