The Whisk and The Donkey

The Whisk and The Donkey

Walking out from the cultural centre I noticed two cute teenage girls a few meters from where I had parked my bike. So I decided to ask them for a portrait. This is Vispen (The Whisk ), and Åsnan, (The Donkey). They are enjoying the summer by hanging out with their friends. They told me that there's been a lot of sunbathing and swimming at Lake Rudan. So I guess it is possible that they know the tough girls I met at the Lake last year. I asked them to name something fun they had done. The Donkey told me about a concert she had seen with Ziggy Marley at Gröna Lund in Stockholm. The Whisk mentioned a family vacation to Crete. The story behind their nicknames are as follows. The Donkey has a laughter that sounds like, you guessed it, a donkey! The Whisks real name is Elvira and that sounds a bit like Elvisp which translates to whisk.

Two very cute firls. The way The Whisk is standing is how an actress would stand if asked to pretend to be a 14-year old girl.

We took a few photos in the direct sunlight first, but then walked over to the tree for a bit more shade.

I can record video with one of my cameras Mr. Poet, so I guess I could get The Donkey to laugh if and when I see here again!
