Tres Chic

At first glance, this looks like a typical family vacation photo--a woman and her son and daughter, enjoying their summer holiday. But wait...

"What was my mother thinking? The stuff I had to endure because of those pants. She used to have me wear them for school, because she thought the grey ones were boring...and she was right. They were. But as a boy, you don't really want exciting pants.
Our R------ was funny. When having a photo taken, he would say "Act natural, act natural" and then stand with his arms out like a plane." (via)

Is this a travel ad to try to get German families to visit France? Families that dressed their poor sons in pink short shorts?
Colette's note: Everything has been emasculated in this photo. The Eiffel Tower and this little boy.

We both agree, however, that Mom looks awesome.
