Two Smiling Babes

Two Colorful Babes

I spotted these two smiling babes at a bus stop in Handen on Thursday. As you can guess it was their somewhat unusual face painting design that made me look a little closer. Meet Rosanna and Lisa. They work at Korpen, a healthcare and exercise organisation that has been around for a century. When I met the girls they had been at Torvalla where kids, aged between six and twelve, could fight against Gladiators on an obstacle course. Sounds like fun! As I took a few photos of Rosanna and Lisa all the kids turned up and wanted to know what was going on. One kid sounded a bit upset when he realised he wasn't going to be photographed!

Just learning what make up is all about I guess. ;-}
Judging by the smiles on their faces it looks as though they both have a good sense of humor. Once again, good find Steffe.

Which one is wearing a mask? ;-)

Fun portrait, Steffe!

Steffe said...

I meant face paint obviously! Thanks Jacob!

Great portrait, really cool!

Amy said...

so why were their faces painted

Steffe said...

You should probably ask the kids about that.My guess is that the kids got their faces painted before the fight with the Gladiators, and then perhaps wanted to try the technique themselves! And what better way to do it than on the grown-ups!

Buy why didn't you photograph the children?

I follow a few rules when I take portraits. The subjects have to say something to me when I see them. I try to find people that I think will stick out from a crowd.

I can't wait to go back to work to show this at two colleagues of mine, which are close friends and bear the same names. Obviously, but I am used to this, yours are younger and prettier. Very nice double portrait!
