Paris, France                                                      (Les 400 Coups)

The perfect name for a crèche (daycare center)?  :-)

  2. "Antoine Doinel, Antoine Doinel"..Ha, Truffaut, Paris in 60ies, black & white movies..The 400 coups would be certainly very different today!
    Did you see those movies?

  4. Oui, je crois que c'est ça, ou "nursery" mais c'est peut-être plus anglais.

    Ah, les bêtises des enfants !

  6. Very odd name for a creche, indeed. Though the French do love their cinema! Love the little boy leaping over the grate...very nostalgic shot.

  7. James-wow. the BW is contest worthy. Has old time feel with more modern clothes.
    As for that blue storefront. What a great find. Hope all is well.

  8. Love how you caught the little boy in flight! Both feet off the ground! Once again, your timing is impeccable. From another photographer, it's as much a part of the subject matter as is the final product.

  9. Un nom parfait pour toutes ces petites canailles ! Très belle photo, clle de l'enfant qui court en dessous : on dirait du Doisneau.

  10. Nice timing on the second photo! We have liftoff! Both photos are very nice. What a whimsical shop in the first photo.
