Theme Day : Books../ Reading in the Park...

BOOKS can be fun... Pick one.. Read one
A Saturday morning, in a Manhattan Park,
This little girl is completely absorbed
by the book she just picked up on the shelves,
while her parents are reading their newspapers
on another table. She was reading aloud to herself,
and no Taxi honking..no Fire engines sirens,
not even my camera's closing shutter,
could disturb her!!!

Lire est un delicieux passe temps..
Choisissez un livre.. Lisez le..
Un Samedi matin d'automne,dans un Parc de Manhattan,
Cette petite fille est completement absorbée
par le livre qu'elle vient de choisir sur les etageres,
pendant que ses parents, à une autre table, lisent leurs quotidiens.
Elle lisait a haute voix, gestes a l'appui,
et ni les klaxons des Taxis, ni les sirenes des pompiers,
ni meme le bruit de mon appareil photo, ne lui ont fait lever la tete!!!

Ah, that completely demonstrates the life force of a book!

Wonderful to see a child so absorbed in the world of books. You captured her joy in the book.

I like the progression from babes & tots to a young reading maverick. Great action packed take on the Theme Day. I meant to tell you that you photographed the children so well - only after I thought about my photos of kids on the move did it really strike me. Have an enjoyable weekend.

Children reading is nice. I like the photo for theme day.

I forgot about theme day today so I just found some of the books I wrote and took a photo and published that. Too late to be included in the group but it worked for me. LOL

That is such a sweet photo! What a pretty picture.

Do visit Norwich Daily Photo and find out what I have in store for this month's theme. Happy theme day! Enjoy your weekend!

You've captured a fantastic expression of that cute little girl! Very good!

Marie-Noyale November 1, 2008 at 8:45 AM  

> Yes this park is located outside the NYPublic library. Shelves of books for adults and children are waiting for you ,
you can sit in the sun and enjoy reading a few pages or more....

>Bergson: Oui,c"est une bibliotheque de Plein air. Le parc est situé a l'arriere de la NYPublic Library.
Des etageres de livres pour adultes et enfants attendent d'etre choisis ,pour quelque minutes ou plus, d'une lecture au soleil et dans la verdure.

Wonderful picture and really captures the essence of what a book is in the hands of a reader.

Tanya November 1, 2008 at 10:02 AM  

I LOVE her expression, that is the cutest! Too bad her parents missed it!

Virginia November 1, 2008 at 10:44 AM  

Une bibliotheque de Plein air is a marvelous idea. This precious child experiencing the joy of reading is just magical. You captured her perfectly Marie. And your tunes are so nice, I might linger a few minutes.

It is amazing what concentration, absorption and imagination children exhibit when they find something they like. Very nice photo today!!

Hi Marie-Noyale and thanks for stopping by GDP. I'm glad my rambling was helpful to you. Your photos are wonderful so just keep on. Cheers from BC!

Wonderful to view an adorable child enjoying reading a book!

PJ November 1, 2008 at 5:12 PM  

Perfect, perfect, perfect. My favorite for today, Marie-Noyale. Even I still like to be swept away in a good story. I wouldn't even want to live in a world without books.

Kelly November 1, 2008 at 6:44 PM  

Her expression is PRICELESS! This is a great shot, and you captured her at precisely the right moment! Well done!

Mo November 1, 2008 at 7:08 PM  

Brilliant capture.

omami November 1, 2008 at 11:26 PM

What a fabulous photo! I love seeing kids read. It gives me hope for our nation and our world!

Happy Theme Day!

beau portrait. Tient je fais le pari que c'est dans MON Bryant Park avec sa bibliotheque exterieure ? tu (c) tes photos ?

Cergie November 3, 2008 at 5:13 AM  

Encore la capture d'un instant : cette enfant concentrée semble par son attitude et son habillement un "enfant différent" ; la concentration peut être intense mais elle est volatile...

You certainly chose a perfect subject for today's theme!

tr3nta November 6, 2008 at 7:33 AM
