This petit garçon was at full throttle alternately pushing with his feet and coasting in perfect rhythm. I was glad to see he was wearing a helmet, color-coordinated with his balance bike, bien sûr!

Can you tell that he is a French boy? Why, certainly you can... he is wearing a chic scarf

... zoom-zoom!

My dear friend, Shell Sherree, whose artistic talent is well-known, has posted a watercolor inspired by one of my photographs. She improved on the original as only she can do with un petit chat hiding among the flowers. I am truly honored, ma chère amie!
