Jennifer, your first one's a classic in all senses of the word, from observation to execution.
The second one is creepy (for me) because of something that happened this morning. I had some time to kill between buying in vegetables and fruit for the next few days and going to eat at my usual menu del dia spot. I elected to go to the 1550, an internet café bar that is quite popular; today, the entire pavement outside was taken up by teenagers, mostly girls making their first ventures this year into summer clothes. The noise was amazing. I usually sit inside, watching whatever is on the tv - mainly news. Inside, today, was also full of youth, and by the time I'd managed to buy my coffee, but a single couple of kids remained.
Sitting at my table, wishing I'd a Leica and a 90mm, I observed the earnest young couple, the constant smiles (mainly on his face) and the beauty of the moment. (Innocent, I have no way of knowing, but it looked that way at that time.)
It brought back the ealy 50s, the local caf near the school, and my own young sense of excitement, hope and curiosity. It also made me think of that old French one: Si jeunesse savait et vieillesse pouvait.
Lunch was an anticlimax of watered wine.
