Deja vu all over again

Deja vu all over again

I have a thing for redheads. That's what I told Mikaela when I noticed her on a walkway in Handen yesterday. She is a local girl and works in a boutique selling clothes. When she isn't watching movies, she is probably busy treating her friends to a manicure. After a short conversation/photo shoot we said goodbye as Mikaela was in a bit of a hurry. But there was something familiar about her. I didn't have time to ask her about it, but when I arrived to the cafe a little later I borrowed Fredde's laptop, and did a quick search. And that's when I found another portrait of Mikaela. One that I shot on Walpurgis Day two years ago.

Black or red hair??? Difficult to choose, but she is absolutely a great girl!

Lovely redhead, I guess she didn't remember you?

You make me see RED!

That is a good question Lowell. I was out shooting with a friend that time. We met a bunch of students near a pub at the mall and I decided to take at least one portrait. It was another quick shoot, and I don't remember if I gave Mikaela my card.

I like her as a redhead too! Lovely eyes.

Jack said...

She seems like a shy girl, who doesn't want anyone to notice her.

Her hair is Pippi Longstockings red!

Steffe said...

Ha ha, probably a correct assumption Jack.

That is a good name for this hair color.

Wow the red hair really makes the blue of her eye colour pop! Lovely portrait. I would be surprised if she didn't recognise you too Steffe!

Very much like students in my class and met them some years later !!!!! I know tha De ja vu feeling !!!!

CaT said...

my goodness what a difference!
but she is really very pretty...

And the reason it took me a while to figure out who she was. I think it's the seventh time I have asked someone for a portrait, only to realise one way or the other, that I have already been there and done that!
