Òu sont les enfants???


As I walked around Tuileries this beautiful sunny morning last January,  I found these ponies waiting patiently for some delighted little riders.  I"m sure they didn't have a long wait.

Clockwise :) The sunlight on the caroussel is lovely and a warm contrast to the wintery trees in the background.

I wonder if they would have let you and me ride if I had been there, V de B!

Love these traditional carousels. Last August my son couldn't miss any, always stopped for a ride.

Sorry Virginia, you can tell it's late here in Perth, I think it's time I went to bed!! I'd still like a ride on the carousel though haha!

I did ride it! When I was there ten years ago. (surely I was a child then). Some of my favorite Paris photos!

Kris said...

WOW, what a beautiful carousel. I think the carousels here are a bit drab compared to these. I've noticed that you don't see very many of these around anymore.

You know how I love carousels and M has already noted that this one is clockwise... I think that the silver-maned horse has an eye for you!

Mary said...

Well, i'm certainly far from a little girl, lol. But i would LOVE a ride on the one with the orange/red mane! What a beautiful carousel! I'm sure the children arrived soon after you took this photo. With squeals of delight, btw..

Carousels and swings...... they don't care if you are five or fifty, both call out 'come have some fun'.

Des chevaux avec des têtes assez inquiétantes.
