Le Carrousel - Où sont les enfants?


A cold and drizzly day in January
 The carrousel stands still.

Beautiful picture, Virginia. You have somehow managed to make a cold, wet Parisian day look good. Les enfants sont à l'école, peut-être? Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I hope the ponies are enjoying the chance to take a breather. Probably a fairly rare occasion. Gorgeous as always, V.

I hope the children are at home, cozy and warm! Nice stark shot, V.

It does look fabulous (to me) no matter the weather or season, this little party-cake of a carrousel. Bien-vu, mon amie.

M said...

I am sure they bundled up and came out to ride a little later! I love the way the caroussel is just at the edge, a little pop of color in the winter landscape.

I guess les enfants sont 'a l'ecole, non? Did you ride the carrousel, V de B?

Not easy for the children to be out in that kind of weather.
One more beautiful scene from Paris Virginia.

It still looks very inviting to me Virginia, gorgeous winter shot.

Olga said...

I love this photo! It is artistic, graphically pleasing and beautiful. Despite the weather conditions :)

On ressent bien le froid, peut-être qu'il vient de tomber de la neige fondue...les enfants ont déserté le manège et sont partis boir un chocolat chaud ?
Très belle photo Virginia.

Love the splash of color on the carousel. At first I though this was a recent picture, and freaked out that all the leaves were gone already! Oops! :)

Virginia said...

Danielle, one very chilly day in March, my granddaughter enjoyed un chocolat chaud while her mom and I enjoyed une verre de vin blanc at a cafe near here in these gardens after she rode this carrousel. :)

Leif, I don't remember if this was mercredi or not.

Judging from all the water on the ground, their mothers had the good sense to keep them home.

Janey and Co. said...

I was there once with a group of girlfriends and we were the only adults riding...Those pics were our favorites!


I will actually be there on Thursday!

Alexa said...

I agree—les petits sont à l'école. Or maybe their mamans wouldn't let them get their chic little Parisian shoes all muddy.

Hi Virginia,

Your photograph is wonderful and yes, too wet for the little darlings and their chic chaussures,
I love the carousels in France, seeing the happy children with smiles on their faces.

Have a happy week
Hugs

This space even looks magnificent in the rain.

Love the light reflections from the puddle of water. And having the carrousel in the shot makes it perfect.
