Bravo Wolfgang !

Je suis en amour avec cette image.

Si je relis ta description,
« ... enfants fascinés par un magicien... »
je suis tenté de te dire que j'aurais plutôt écrit,
« ... 2 jeunes filles fascinées par un magicien
et 1 jeune homme totalement fasciné par une des 2 jeunes filles... »

Je te propose même MON titre ;-)
« mademoiselle, voudriez-vous m'épouser ? »

L'émotion dans son visage est tellement forte,
elle nous fait faire un agréable retour sur notre propre enfance.
La photo, c'est génial !

All these wonderful happy faces "speak " for themselves. Wonderful.

@Manuela Photography: Thank you!

I am sorry that I don’t understand French language so I don’t know what note follows the photo. I would say that those beautiful children were at some picnic. I like their beautiful faces. The two sweet girls seem to be sisters. And the boy; he is adorable too with his lovely smile; he is story for himself. That really is a lovely photo.

24 Oct 2007 7:54am

@medam961: You are right about the picnic. It was organized by SERY, an organization that helps newcomers to integrate. To find out more you can click on the link under the photo, the explanations there are in French, English and Spanish. As for the little ones, they were cute indeed. Gilles asked if the title shouldn't be "Will you marry me?", he feels the little boy is infatuated with the girl. So you be the judge...

Vanessa from Kent, United Kingdom

Fantastic moment captured here, love the way the boy is looking at the girl.

24 Oct 2007 8:20am

@Vanessa: So what do you say to Gille's suggestion? (please see my reply to medam)

Daroru from Amagasaki, Japan

Bravo Wolfgang. Tu a su capter toute l'expression sur cette photo. Superbe.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

These happy faces tell the tale. Wonderful capture, Wolfgang!

@Viewfinder: Thanks VIewfinder!

Amir from ?, Iran

Kids are cute and funny. I always miss my childhood when I see this kind of shot. Well done for capturing this happy moment. Children usually have happier time than adults because they have not yet seen the ugly side of our world

24 Oct 2007 1:34pm

@Amir: Thanks for your visit and comment. I have to say that your idea of children having happier times than adults is generallt true, but I know children that have seen the ugly side of our world, as you put it. It's very tough on our morale to see a child like this...

Lost Valley View from Kamloops, Canada

There is nothing to brighten up one's day than the smile of a young child!! Well done

24 Oct 2007 3:22pm

@Lost Valley View: Thanks, and greetings from Granby to Kamloops...

Reza from Montreal, Canada

They are cute. Very well captured.

24 Oct 2007 5:05pm

@Reza: Thank you, Reza, and à la prochaine,

Brian from West Lafayette, United States

Very nice image--these children are so obviously having a wonderful time!

24 Oct 2007 5:14pm

@Brian: The magician sure knew how to catch their attention. Thanks for your visit, Brian.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

The little boys smile and pose is wonderful. They look such happy children!
Bless them :)

24 Oct 2007 9:44pm

@MaryB: Thanks Mary. They had a lot of fun with the magician.

HorseRotorVator from Newton, United States

Very cute capture!

Stunner from Kingston, Jamaica

Beautiful candid capture!

24 Oct 2007 11:05pm

@Stunner: With kids it's always fun to observe them when they are having fun, thanks for your comment.

Michael Rawluk from Prince George, Canada

Absolutely gorgeous. I love the expression on the boy. Priceless.

25 Oct 2007 12:03am

@Michael Rawluk: So what's your take on his expression? Please read my answer to medam's comment above.
Thanks for your visit.

Walt from Scarborough, Canada

Ah man - great shot. I was trying to explain today to my class why my French is so poor...I'm going to have to get them to translate the captions for me...I have no excuse really.

25 Oct 2007 12:50am

@Walt: Thanks for the compliment, Walt. For me learning French was easy, I married a Quebecoise.... In the meantime, if you want to learn more about SERY, the organizers of the picnic, here is their website. You will find info in English, French and Spanish. À la prochaine,

Illuci from Netherlands, Netherlands

Regard les mains du garçon et ceux de la fille! On peut voir qu'ils voient quelque chose d'impossible, mais ils savent ce n'est pas vrai! Serait-il possible, néanmoins? C'est pour ça que je trouve cette photo si réussie!

31 Oct 2007 1:46pm

@Illuci: There could be a more prosaic explanation for their hands. I was a bit chilly at times on that day, and maybe they just wanted to keep their hands warm.
