A shocking encounter :-)

A shocking encounter :-)

I spotted these gals with their matching nail polish in Handen yesterday and decided to move in for a portrait. As I was about to explain what I wanted they cut me off and said "and now you want to take our portrait? That's right I said and that's when Emma (to the right),went into shock. When she came out of it her friend Matilda had already said yes to the photo shoot. But I don't have any make up on me Emma continued. I can't have my photo taken without make up! Can I hide my face? No, that doesn't make for a good portrait I said. But what if I hide my face behind my hair, that could work. Anyway, Emma (without the make up), works at a retirement home. Her friend Matilda works at an office. I asked if they had any fun hobbies and they told me, yes, we enjoy drinking wine! That's a hobby I am familiar with. What about anything crazy I asked and told them about Ego. And then they told me, we enjoy taking long walks. That doesn't really sound very crazy I said. But we do it differently they explained. First we make up a list with weird things we have to do during the promenade. Like what I asked? Like asking a guy if we can feel him up and grab his genitals! By now it was my turn to go into shock so that was that!

Aaaay, that is a different pastime. I wondered about the title (a shocking encounter) - more like..er.. close encounters of the third kind (Steven Spielberg). I do hope your jaw didn't thud as it hit the floor! lol

They are a couple of cute characters...why the peace sign, though? Ah, they were afraid of your camera.

Oh, did they grab as your jaw fell?

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend, too.:-)

I think Emma and Matilda know how to pull your leg...they are too cute for words
I would have loved to see your expression when Emma said that : )

Haha! Sheryl cracked me up!

I have to admit (as I'm sure several other do too) that I had no idea where this was going to end up. As usual though, you get another A+ for this interview.

You and your interviews never seise to amaze me! I do wonder if you've become "famous" in Haninge?

What cheeky girls!
I can't tell which one is not wearing make up.

Steffe said...

It's the one in hiding to the right :-)

Not sure about the famous part but I did get a call from a journalist today and he told me that the official Haninge municipality has put a link to my blog on their site. Oh and there is a photo of me at flickr taken just as I had approached Emma and Matilda.
