Dimanche des Rameaux, en noir

Palm Sunday yesterday was a pretty horrible, rainy day. We had intended to go to the flower show near the cathedral but ended up in a museum, not because of the weather but because of the crowds and traffic jam. On our way there from the restaurant, I couldn't resist this scene!
-----------------------------
Hier fut une journée moche, moche, moche... Nous avions l'intention d'aller à la fête des fleurs mais la foule nous en a dissuadés. Un embouteillage... aïe. Nous avons donc opté pour un musée et en cheminant du restaurant jusqu'à celui-ci, je n'ai pas pu résister à cette scène !

A "fashionista" at a very young age. Only in France!

What an adorable shot. We're due for some nasty weather Monday, I hope it doesn't come your way!

Jacob said...

Super composition, Ciel...lots of interest here...look at her little legs kind of twisted about as she walks...And she's all dressed up like a real lady!

J'aime bien ton cadrage, les attitudes et les lignes du passage pieton en arriere plan.

What a precious sight! I don't blame you for wanting to take it. Look at that precious coat and their walk and the post next to the man is interesting too. I wish you had gotten the whole man tho because it would add more to it.

PS I wrote you at Gmail addy

Nice contrast between the well dressed young lady and her dungaree clad dad.

Rain means mud and taking quite a chance with those pristine white tights on a tot.

The young lady is far more elegant than her escort. I wonder if she is embarrassed.

Wonderful shot, Ciel. What a great picture!

Adorable photo.

Very sweet. It reminds me of Sundays when I was little and we had to go to church dressed like that young lady. With white gloves yet. Mine could never stay white---for some reason. MB

Tash said...

That is so darling! I love the way they both have their legs crossed the same way. Really wonderful photo, Ciel.

I'm glad you had your camera at the ready. I love this!

Looks like they are about to dance their way across the road :o)
Lovely picture, well done.

James Mark said...

This is so cute, so BCBG - very bourgeois, very Triplets and very Compiègne too; with the haircut and all - in short, so French! Great capt.

VP said...

You were right: c'est irrésistible! Well caught!

Halcyon said...

Too cute! They even have their legs crossed in the very same way. Like father, like daughter.

Jacob said...

Hi Ciel - We have a world-wide problem...I'm getting no pictures on any blog!

DaveM said...

Hi Ciel, same problem too.

T. Becque said...

This is fabulous and adorable! Love the muted colors, patterns, and cropping. Did they know you took a picture of them?

Carolyn said...

Like everyone else, I find this photo entirely charming. A little girl with her daddy always touches the heart.

Chuck Pefley said...

Love the way their legs are both positioned the same way! Nice catch!!
