Horses, elephants, trains and automobiles

Every Sunday morning my son and I take a long walk in the park. When the weather is nice, we even stretch as far as the Pincio, where I like to sit on a park bench and read the paper, sipping a cappuccino, while my little boy rides the merry-go-round, blissfully.

Spot a familiar subject in this photo?

  1. Familiar but your little boy still preferred the train to this beautiful cabriolet.

    Or maybe you asked him to sit on the train: it would have been too easy to find the familiar subject if he was siting in it… :-)

  2. Carousels are always popular with people of every age, but they must seem truly magical to very young children.

  3. Thank you for coming for a spin!

  7. Magical and amazing colors!

    I love the picture.

  8. A carousel may be a metaphor for life. Colorful amazement that sometimes just seems to go around and around...

    Sundays are good for doing regular little trips like this. I return to the local museum on Sunday winters to view the Canaletto and the Impressionists.

  9. That is beautiful! Reminds me what childhood is all about!

  10. I love your header!!!
    I've been once in Rome and liked it a lot!
    Especially the 'not tourist areas' where you can see ordinary life...
    Thanks for sharing!

    Happy 'Sunday in My City' greetings from Cairo!
