ABC Wednesday "G" is for "girl"

This little girl was out for a Sunday walk with her parents and ventured onto a lawn with her lavender balloon. She's wearing a typical little Serbian vest, skirt, and white blouse. Serbs dote on "little princes and princesses" and indulge them to what must of us would call spoiling the child. For the most part, however, they do also instill in them good manners and proper behavior.

Excellent photo. I think the contrast between the balloon and the grass is cool.

She is a cutie. It’s nice to see the traditional gear get a run outside of festivals too!

She is a beautiful child and the good manners and proper behavior are things a lot of Americans skip in raising their children. Nice post.

I only got one Grumpy Alien posted for "G." He is at Thunder Maker

You're good at photographing people, including children. That little beauty at the wedding from your August 30th post comes to mind. I like seeing the traditional costume, too.

What a sweetheart. I love her national outfit with the leggings and her lavendar balloon. Perfect choice.

What an angel! I was out with a friend yesterday and the young children we witnessed certainly did not show good manners. All the while, ignored by their parents. We moved to gain some peace and quiet.

A lovely contrast here however.
Thanks so much.
