The Beautiful Lejla

The temperature was high today. Nearly 30 C. I was out on a bike ride, and had stopped for a light lunch at Poseidon's square when I noticed this beauty enjoying the sunshine at the stairs to the cultural centre. This is Lejla. She was on her lunch break. She works as a hairdresser at Satch, at the Haninge mall. Lejla lives in Jordbro. She spends a few hours at the gym every week. She's planning for a trip to Mexico. On her free time she enjoys listening to rock and heavy metal music. Which probably was what she was doing when I decided to ask her for a portrait. She asked me how she should pose and I said, just sit there and look good. So that's what she did.

    Hel-lo legs. I hope the shirt-as-skirt trend never ends. No summer is complete without it.
  • Sylvia...Sometimes PRO 5y

    She certainly did...and I really like how you combined her look, music
    preference, and ability to enjoy a great day outside...
    Mexico! Pretty dangerous right now! Universities that usually offer
    classes there are cancelling at least for summer...too volatile...
    Hope if she goes, it is a great time...Mexico is a tremendously
    inspiring country to visit...Thanks for sharing another one of your
    days...another one of your "people"...

    I wouldn't go to Mexico now because of the extreme violence with the drug cartels going on, especially anywhere within 500km of the US border. The Caribbean might be safer. If you see her let her know to really check out where she is going south of the border. Now I think it is your duty to seek her out and have a talk with her. I'm sure you can find other things to talk about as well. There have been over 600 violent murders along the border area so far this year.

    In this shot she almost looks asleep. You do find lovely subjects to capture with your camera.

    Thanks Keith. She's a stunner al-right Jan.

    As I understood it the travel plans are still being figured out. Hopefully the violence in Mexico will be sorted out but it's a crazy situation down there.
