In It For The Kids

In it for the kids

This is Saga and Ilja.They are lovers that sort of live together at Ilja's place in Haninge. Saga works at a kindergarten, and Ilja is a teacher. He passed the exam only two day ago. Both like to draw and paint. Saga used to compete in show jumping, so I told her that moving to Haninge could be a good move, as there are horse farms all over the place here. Ilja sees himself as a future Doctorate in pedagogy. He is currently working on a new art project where he will make a large sized deck of cards with video game characters. Saga is a keen photographer and has taken a few good ones over the years so I told her to set up a flickr account. I met the couple at Poseidon's Square in Handen yesterday.

Cool couple.

Sorry to hear about your problems. Have now resolved mine. Sometimes it takes forever going through the forums especially when you get frustrated. Sometimes best to go away and come back when a little calmer. A cup of coffee and a fresh approach worked today. Technology can drive one crazy sometimes. Hope your computer is ok very soon. Thanks for your support.

Nice to see street portrais again - this is very fine. They like the sun and life, I think.

I always enjoy your street portraits. I need to develop my talent for this type of photography. Thank you for the inspiration.

I love how their dark, drab colors are topped off with brightly colored hats! They look like fun people.

Koselig bilde!
Jeg kunne, før jeg leste billedteksten, se at dette paret var pedagoger med interesse for kunst.
Det er ikke alltid mine antagelser stemmer, men det gjorde det dene gangen.
