Sanjis

Sanjis

I spotted this beauty in Handen. Her name is Sanjis. She's a third year student at the nearby Fredrika Bremer secondary school. She was on her way to traffic school, but had a few minutes to spare. Sanjis lives in Handen. As any teenager she enjoys shopping. To stay fit she goes to the Najaden gym. Sanjis is a former elite swimmer. She gave up the sport three years ago, but still enjoys swimming.Today she works as a swimming coach at the Torvalla Arena. When I heard that I asked if she knew local hero and world record holder Sarah Sjöström which she obviously did. I like it when I can connect people I have met and photographed.

Pretty girl. I want to work up the courage to spend a day making portraits of random people I meet on the streets.

It's very addictive and great fun, so I think you should give it a go. The worst thing that can happen is that someone says no thanks and if that happens there's always someone else to ask.

wow, an elite swimmer? I can understand why she quit. It seems like a very intense sport.

I'll have to pick up on your techniques on how to start talking to random people It does not come naturally to me!

Thank you for this beautiful good morning. I'd like to do as you say but I just can't and luckily there are many 'passive' subjects to target. I'll try again, sometimes...

I hope you give it a go some day Mr. Poet. I'm sure you can do it Kitty.
