Quick hello from Montreal Canada

We are here in Montreal, photo taken yesterday by unpacking presents my Grandaughter Alicia (Age 4)
giving ''acte de presence'' in her new balerina outfit
we bought for her last September in Spain.

A perfect fit..even the shoes..
After seeing some little MPEG movies made on a Flamengo Show in Andalucia last September by me..Alicia practiced it right after she got her new outfit.

So we are now for the coming weeks in Canada-Montreal Folks

To be continnued

Hi John
That's a very nice shot of lovely model. Vivid Spanish colors and good tight crop. I love de posture of the young balerina. If you happen to drive near Trois-Rivières, give me a buzz, I think you have my phone number.

Hi John

Mood rules here, with an authentic, winning smile, from the cute dancing girl, over ruling the slight softness. Well done!

Hi John,

How much she must have loved receiving this gift from you.

You can see by looking at Alicia that she feels like a princess in this outfit!

Lovely moment to share.

Thanks and
have a great time over there.


hello john!
very sweet balerina my friend, great photo.

Olé for Alicia.
Lovely professional posing. The dress suits her very well.

I think something went wrong with the upload, John
Only 66Kb makes it very noisy.
Bet, the original is oke, toch ?
Have a fantastic time in Canada.

An outstanding capture of a sweet dolly!

Wonderful colours, details, and pose
P.S. Thanks for your kind words on "My Favourite Shot"

MMM John. Nu wil Demi ook zo'n jurk
Foto kwaliteit iets onder jouw gemiddelde maar ik zie het is de Fuji?

Hoop dat jullie een fijne tijd hebben.

Hi John, A real little angel dressed up and dancing, it comes very naturally to them at that age which is fun for all to see. The flamingo is a fanastic dance to watch for sure. TFS. Murray.

Hi Sir John,

Cute acts from children are such adorable that one cannot resist to express love to a child. You have beautifully presented such a poetic verse in a visual form. Well done.

Thanks for sharing an invaluable gesture.

Hi John :)

Hey ! What a cute girl ! She is really pretty in his flamenco dress :)))) Full of colours, nice pose, and tender smile ... i would like to dance with her ;)
Thanks for sharing such delicate moment.
