Je me souviens quand j'étais un enfant à Paris, pour être précis à Port d'Italie, ma famille allait souvent dans un parc près de chez nous et là je regardais les enfants parisiens jouer avec leurs petits bateaux à voile dans la fontaine.
Aujourd'hui, alors que je marchais le long du lac Lilydale, j'ai vu cet homme avec son gadget de contrôle qui aimait regarder son voilier naviguer les eaux. Des mémoires accouraient à nouveau du séjour de ma famille à Paris.
Walking along the Lilydale Lake I came across this man enjoying the sunny afternoon as he manoeuvered his yacht with his remote control. Memories came flashing back of my years spent in Paris where as a child I watched the Parisian children play with their little sailing boats in the park fountain.
In Workshop I am posting another image, one that I originally planned to post but I liked the boat's reflection in this shot.

une très belle image par l'esthétique, mais aussi par la douce nostalgie qu'elle évoque. Une image très poétique.

A very pleasant, slightly nostalgic composition with a relaxed atmosphere. Both photos are good and well balanced, but I agree that the boat's reflection looks nicer in this one. I also think this photo has a better view of the trees across the lake. I like the good light and mild colours.

Very nice composition with the grown man and his toy. From the TN I thought this was a lone fisherman and a small yacht was passing by :-) Nice sylvan surroundings and nice cloud formations in the sky. Good one thanks for sharing.

Funny that this adult man plays with a kid's toy. Very nice composition with a bit of nostalgy. I also prefer this photo with the boat's reflection. Very pleasant quiet atmosphere. I didn't know you lived in Paris.
Have a nice day

Interesting to see this side of New Zealand with a bit of sentimental touch and nice to hear about your childhood memories from Paris. For me it also brings back childhood memories, not because I played with model boats but because I had time to sit and contemplate the world.
I like the reflection of the boat, it really makes the image for me.

I was a bit confused before reading your note, seeing the location as Australia with a title in French...but now it all makes perfect sense. :)
A wonderful image which captures the tranquil atmosphere and sense of personal reflection. No matter how old we become, or where we may end up in life, it's the simple things like this which tend to be the most enjoyable. A picture that reflects the inner child in all of us. Very well done! enjoy the weekend. Take good care.

Reply to your Ques.
Hope you have a nice and memorable trip to Iran ,
but now i dont remind the film , but in future if find , would announce you ,
Also , Iran specially in North , beside Caspian Sea has many green regions ,
for example : Babolsar, Babol , Amol , ... in Mazandaran county ,that have seasides and green lands without mountain, and
Lahijan , Ramsar , Klardasht , ... in Gilan county which have both Green lands , mountains and Sea sides,
Hope this note is useful , however by searching in Internet could earn many other information about hotels and other useful subjects ,
If you traveled to Iran i suggest to visit aslo Isfahan in center of Iran map with many historic places to see ,
Thanks again and Best wishes,
your note brought me to several years ago and when the Iran TV showed and Australinan film named Snowy River , very memorable film with spectacular landscapes in large area on this country, :))
