[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have already posted 2 versions of the adult traditional costume of Plougastel. But I thought children were not to be forgotten.
The dress codes used to be quite strict.
The costumes of the little girls in the darker blue were not worn after the age of five. They then changed into a brighter , more colourful costume until the age of twelve, when they matured into the adult costume, with the elaborate white head dress, instead of the pearl-decorated bonnet.
This is a scan and not of very good quality, as the film was a little old I think, and I didn't know how to crop photographs properly at the time.
As WS, I have added photos of the two different costumes for girls under twelve.

Hi Marie, one of the tricks to a great photo is when you are taking the picture do not ust focus on the subject but everything else in the shot. This is a great picture that is full of colour and life but the metal fence in the background takes away from the picture slightly and the eye is immediately drawn to the partial road sign.
Still though, those minor details can be fixed pretty quick in Photoshop, so overall great picure and well taken.


Coucou c'est encore moi Marie-Louise,

J'aime beaucoup ce petit ensemble d'enfants en costumes traditionnels bretons. Ils ont tous l'air enjoués et fiers de poser pour la postérité.
Belle composition bien colorée, bravo.
Je me suis permis un petit atelier pour supprimer le panneau de signalisation sur la droite.

Amitiés et bonne après midi.


CUTE KIDS..... only 2 have smiles though, the rest are busy with their own agendas!

Quels jolis costumes et qu'ils sont mignons !
C'est chouette de voir que les traditions ne se perdent pas et que les enfants savent d'où ils viennent...
