corner view ≈ {it's all about the jump} spring


jump for joy, jump for spring. i don't even know if it's spring yet, in paris. bichonnade sure still wears enough clothes to beat the probable air's chill. instead of trying to plow sodden earth to hunt for early spring life, bespoke bichonnade sprang to mind. i know why too. in flemish the word spring means jump. and when i hear jump, jacques henri lartigue offers me the perfect excuse to expose him once again. indeed, i do so every few seasons, so watch out for the man's intentional leaps! jane's corner view, francesca's hosting, spring theme.

  1. This is such fun but could you imagine wearing all those heavy layers!
    We shed our layers this weekend and enjoyed wonderful warm spring weather. I hope you will be soon too! xo Carole

    dearest Nadeschda...
    Spring is a little bit late here, right? but, I tell you, in a few days... okay weeks... nature will do that jump of Mdme! ... time to spring!
    Yes, Carole is right... with all that layers... and corset! all that striving.

    Love

  8. So perfect! How else to meet spring but with such spring!
    I almost flew the other day to catch a cherry blossom and I can understand the feeling you express.
    It was like a true welcome to almost fly like that!!
    Wish I`d had a camera!! But it was also a beautiful moment to just experience it .
    SO glad Mr. Lartique had his!(camera)
    Smile to you N!! For the wonder that you share!!

  10. Ahhhh, Nadine, I have missed your quirky perspective! I'm sitting here half awake at 5 AM and smiling, thanks to you.
    I don't think I'm up to jumping myself, but like the idea. :>)

  11. I love this photograph Nadine! She looks like she's got a spring in her step(s) - that's for sure!! And a very happy spring to you from the upside down southern hemisphere where we are just coming into (an unseasonably warm) Autumn xx

  16. What? Yay! My comment was not eaten! (Using Internet Explorer this time. That might have done the trick! Hiya Nadine, I was reading all along, just my comments, my comments got lost in cyberspace...)

  17. Great photo and we all will jump a lot when the spring finally arrives - its sunny here, but still to cold and snow left, so this photo gives the right spring (jump) mood!

    Great combination of word meanings in this case. Same in German.
