Maria From Zakopane

Maria


This is Maria whom I met in Handen a couple of days ago. Originally from Poland where she lived in a village in the Tatra Mountains region called Zakopane. These days she lives in Haninge and have just finished a course called Swedish as a Second Language. And now she is qualified for further studies and she has decided that she wants to work with kids at a Kindergarten and those studies will take place here in Haninge. We talked about the fact that there are quite a few people from Poland living and working here now that we are all members of the EU.

She's lovely! My great-grandparents were from Poland.

Maria wears such happy colors. Even her earrings are bright. But one of the most charming things about her is that smile. Wise and playful and cautious, all at the same time. And you've caught that beautifully.

Another one of your photos where someone is showing off a great smile. Good luck to her in her endeavors.

Beautiful portrait of an interesting woman: say hello to Maria, if you ever see her again. I love the Tatra from where she is from.

Thanks people. I took a bunch of photos and this one with her big smile was the obvious choice.

Hehe:) Nice to see someone from Poland, and Zakopane which is quite near from Nowy Sacz:)
