The Eyes Have It

The Eyes Have It
After a few days with grey skies the sun came out on Friday and I decided that it was time to shoot the first street portrait of the year. I was in Handen when I spotted Hanna. It was her beautiful red hair that I first noticed. Hanna is a future Drama Teacher. I asked her if she had any interesting hobbies but all she wanted to say was that she is a very creative person.

Such eyes indeed! Would you call them green or hazel? I think she colored her hair to compliment them.

She is one of those great beauties that are so nice to look at. The sun, so low in the sky makes the perfect light.

Amazing girl, great portrait!

Paul said...

You took great advantage of the setting sun's light - it accentuates her hair colour beautifully. Nice one!

Yes, there are certain things only light can do.

Please have a good Sunday ahead.
