Citizen of the world

Lili, part Melanesian, part French, her parents' delight, little citizen of the world. Photo taken last weekend. I love the shadow of her eyelashes on her cheek. (this post echoes yesterday's)

Lili, mi mélanésienne mi française, bonheur de ses parents, petite citoyenne du monde. Photo prise ce week-end. J'aime l'ombre de ses cils sur sa joue. (ce message fait écho à celui d'hier)

Oh my she is a rare beauty and will grow up to be a really outstanding knockout. I can just see her now. Wow. Lili has the whole world at her feet. What a beautiful photograph.

She's really cute !!! I think that every kid should be considered property of the whole humanity.

Isn't it nice to take photos of children - this is another very good one! They are in general more natural in front of the photgrapher,however only up to a certain age. My grand-daughter has now also learnt to "pose".

I believe that bi-racial or bi-cultural children--(I hope that no-one is offended by these terms--the only way I know to express it)--have outstanding physical characteristics. Beautiful they are!!

Today is Kids Theme Day in DP community. At least, it looks so :)

She's a treasure. And she looks quite knowledgable as a citizen, to me.

Beautiful capture of a world citizen. I love the back lighting and the softness surounding her.

Le jour où la terre entière sera métissée, corps et cultures tout ensemble, sera un beau jour !
Et ce qui est merveilleux, c'est que c'est inéluctable...

Mais nous sommes tous métissés !
De celte, de breton de vosgien par exemple sans chercher loin
J'ai remarqué qu'il y a en France des types régionaux (Toulouse, le Mans, Alsace) et bientôt il n'y en aura plus...
