Paris Rouge LXXIX - Une mitaine rouge


Playing in the white powdery dirt in Paris seems to have universal appeal for children.  My Eva and Davis did a lot of it when we visited in 2009.  I captured this petit garçon with the obligatory stick at the Luxembourg Gardens last week.   And would you look... a  ROUGE mitten!

Virginia-- I smiled when I heard Jacques Brel singing: "Ne Me Quitte Pas" just as I was looking at that kid looking at his mitten... "Don't leave me, red mitten! We are tied together! Don't leave... " ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Votre petite moufle ressemble à un joli poisson rouge sorti de son bocal...

Someone must have known you'd be wandering along momentarily, V! What a perfect touch.

Why do I think that this is what caught your eye? Great capture.

Not a red mitten Virginia, well imagine that haha! I also like the fur lined hood and the extremely white little sneakers, so cute.

Very cute little guy and already stylish. Let's give a credit to his mom.
Perfect framing, invigorating splash of color and a light with long evening shadows made a wonderful shot.
Virginia, please come to my blog to take a walk together.

Love the red mitten and the swinging motion suspended over the unique surface found in the Paris gardens... It was a great visit with lots of shadows and an abundance of sun!

So at what age do they stop wearing white sneakers?

Alexa said...

Ce petit garçon was obviously wearing them just for you, V! And what is it about little boys and sticks?

You used a most interesting angle to compose this image, so it is not "just another kid" photo. Nice!
