The Girls of Summer

The Girls of Summer

Posing

The last day of the school year is always a big day in anyone's life. I was in Handen when I met the five girls of summer on the top photo. They had been to a school graduation ceremony where students, teachers, parents and relatives are all dressed up, and where a few summer songs are sung, including everyone's favorite, Ida's Summer Song. From left to right: Celina, Riisa, Carolin, Thea and Helena. The two girls on the second photo graduated from the Fredrika Bremer secondary school last Friday. I don't know them, but I was in the area when I heard a lot of screaming and shouting, so I decided to stick around for some fun photos. If you are curious why they are standing in front of a truck, check out my Schools Out set.

These are all beautiful women and you've done an excellent job capturing their beauty.

Now I know why you like summer so much, and I'm thinking it isn't necessarily the warm weather! :-)

That top picture stirs up a memory of a Bergman film but I can't remember which one.
