A Blonde in Hong Kong

    Newer Older

    This is Sophia Froeschl, an Austrian model I met in Hong Kong. I am not sure I remember how I met her and her boyfriend, but it was either up at the peak or later at the bar while I was editing photos. See, I am a total geek and when I am in hotels, I don't go to the bar to drink alcohol... I go down there, order tomato juice, listen to good music, and edit photos until my battery dies. I usually pick a remote corner, but people occasionally see me editing photos, and since they are some level of bored, they come over and start talking. Anyway, Sophia and her boyfriend could not have been nicer - they sat down and we drank and talked. I asked if I could take her photo since she was the prettier of the two, and he said of course!

      great story and a great photo with it.

      Although, I can't say that I have ever seen someone order tomato juice in a bar. And I would probably come over and talk to. But then, I would also be the type to sit in the corner and edit photos :P

      Well, wasn't that nice of him to say yes. She is quite a looker, and good on you to ask. Very nice portrait.

      She is very beautiful. I have always wondered how you found time to edit your photos.

      yes, she's beautiful, but there is something about your portraits that I just love. at the moment I'm digging them more than your landscapes, which is crazy, i know. anyway, I'm trying to figure out what it is... I don't think it's simply the textures. I don't know, anyway, they're awesome.
