This group of young girls was waving good bye when I took them in picture, and then jumped, but I was not ready. But thankfully, the woman taking them in picture crouched and asked them to do the same in front of the Pei pyramid; this time, I was ready!!
Let's have fun!

Ah, ha, pas "Joie de Vivre" mais "Joie au Louvre"!
This is a delightful "fun" shot of this group of happy girls all jumping at the same time. It's a wonderfully happy photograph with lots of fun, good colours, excellent details and, of course, set against the iconic Pei pyramid too.
A very fine candid shot taken "over the shoulder" of the "official" photographer!

Une image originale et décalée, plaisant vue avec cette action prise au bon moment, belle luminosité, bien aussi le coin en premier plan à gauche afin de donner du relief à ta photo.

For some reason, this image immediately reminded me of the work of Martin Parr. Of course it's got the people and the saturated colour, but it's more than that. It's also got that same sense of humour, and the notion of the photographer as the detached and slightly wry observer of others' cliched, touristy activities. You probably know the photograph already, but in case you don't, here is the sort of thing I mean!

Jump shots...very, very typical for young ones here in the Philippines that even I, a not-so-young middle-aged mom loves doing it when I am with my friends, and we do it ala Bruce Lee...or "defenders of the galaxy" style. Beautiful spontaneous capture:)

A great shot, Claude!
The sort of shot photographers ask men to do a weddings ... jump in the air and laugh!
You were so lucky to get a second chance!
The backdrop of the pyramid makes an interesting though unobtrusive b/g for this 'fun' photograph
Have a great day,

very original presentation of this famous square. You were lucky to be there and witness the moment and you have perfectly used the opportunity. I bet you have much better photo of these girls than the person who intended to take it. Curious if they will ever see their own photo?
Excellent moment, great effect of repeated element of a jumping girl :)
