The mother was busy with an older child shopping for clothes in one of the boutiques in this mall and the younger ones were left in his care. I think the male companion looking over his shoulder was most likely his brother.

Bonjour Claude. I am happy you stopped by my humble place in the American midwest. Milwaukee is no Paris but it's home and I am glad you liked this photo. It is a favorite subject of mine.
