L'Écoute, of course!

Yesterday I posed this puzzle,  and I should have known my very smart readers would guess that I snapped this at Saint Eustache.  Écoute by sculptor Henri de Miller, has always fascinated me, and when I happened upon this boy and his father having such a grand game of chase around it, I couldn't resist. Today I share a few more.

Effectivement ce fut une prise photographique fantastique... Il est émouvant de voir jouer les parents avec leurs enfants.

Great photo. They look like they are having such a good time! Massive sculpture!

Alexa said...

Even better! It's wonderful to see a parent really having a good time with his kid—and I'll bet he'd love to have a copy of this wonderful shot.

Wow, that 1st pic is really great, in full motion! It gives the impression that if you would look again at the pic seconds later they would already be in a different position!
God bless you!

Happiness could be the title of the image. God bless this happy child!
My heart goes out for those who lost the loved ones, children, in a devastating tragedy in Toulouse.

I missed yesterday's post, so I wasn't guessing. But, I love today's photo. My compliments, Virginia. Great form and great action.

I love this sculpture...why don't we have more of it (the good stuff) in the US?

Virginia said...

FB, good question but I am sure you know the answer...narrow minded politicians for one.
