Summer Cool

Summer Cool
The sun was shining from a mostly clear blue sky when I shot this portrait in Handen. I'm guessing that the temperature was around 22C. This is Kimmy. I noticed him from across the road, so I took the bike through a pedestrian tunnel and rode up next to him and asked him for a portrait. He is from Västerhaninge. As you can guess he spends a lot of time at the gym. I didn't ask, but I can bet you a buck or three that he wears that beanie while working out as well! He listens to a lot of hip-hop and R&B, and I think his outfit works well for that sort of thing.

Taking portraits of strangers on the street is something I would like to try. You did a good job here.
