The Beautiful Lejla

The Beautiful Lejla

The temperature was high yesterday. Nearly 30 C. I was out on a bike ride, and had stopped for a light lunch at Poseidon's square when I noticed this beauty enjoying the sunshine at the stairs to the cultural centre. This is Lejla. She was on her lunch break. She works as a hairdresser at Satch, at the Haninge mall. Lejla lives in Jordbro. She spends a few hours at the gym every week. She's planning for a trip to Mexico. On her free time she enjoys listening to rock and heavy metal music. Which probably was what she was doing when I decided to ask her for a portrait. She asked me how she should pose and I said, just sit there and look good. So that's what she did.

Ah, Lejla, you listen to music with style! 30°C it's a long way from meters of snow!

Super hot here today, and plenty of sour air or toxins. People like me are supposed to stay indoors. The sky is blue.

I have not seen anything to equal your relaxed girl. Nice shot. And she sure looks like she is enjoying the sunshine.

Thanks all. I guess I should say that the first thing I noticed as I entered the square was Lejla's legs!

After I took some photos, that Lejla had a look at, she had to walk back to the hair saloon. Perhaps not a coincidence but I have photographed another woman that works at the same hair saloon. Samiye.
