Ethan


It's no secret that I dearly love photographing children in Paris.  Meet Ethan.  Ethan and his family are Birmingham friends who just happened to be in Paris while we were there in June, 2009.  Their flat faced the gardens of the Palais Royal ( jealous???) and this summer afternoon we joined them there.  Eva, Davis, Katherine and Ethan had a grand time building a village in the white powdery dirt, marching around the Pol Bury Fountain, poking sticks in the fountains and racing through the allée of trees, just like so many Parisian enfants have done.  Oh, and the grownups took pictures and drank wine of course.

No computer, iPad or playstation. Just some gravel, a stick and imagination. How wonderful V.

precious.... he's super cute and lives fully in the moment - we all should be able to be like that.
