The Sun-Worshippers

The Sun-Worshippers

Before heading home after a lengthy bike ride in the warm weather a few days ago, I stopped at the nature park Slätmossen in Handen for my usual photo from the bridge. And from that bridge I could see these two young women sitting on a bench on the other side of the pond, so I figured one more portrait was in order. Meet Sara and Saara (Finnish spelling), good friends who live here in Handen. Both girls are students at different secondary schools.They couldn't come up with any interesting hobbies, but Saara used to play soccer until the team split, and then she gave up the sport. Sara and Saara made the most of the warm weather, because you newer know what tomorrow will bring!

Sunbathing in the park sounds interesting enough to me.

They really do seem to be enjoying the Sun. Another very good capture by you.

This is wonderful, these girls don't run or train for something, just stay idle sunbathing...
This is obviously one of my favourite portraits!

Ha ha, The Lazy Poet has spoken!

You could have titled it the Sun Goddesses. Nice portrait and kind of cool they let you take their picture.

These portrait photos are fun. The one on the left looks much like our granddaughter, but younger.

Of course you can Julie. The more people that find their way to my photos the happier I am!
