i found this german girl, sonja in los angeles. she was visiting for the first time, and i knew i had to photograph her. she was traveling from copenhagen and spent some time in india, where she got this stunning traditional indian dress. 
i have always been in love with the cityscape of l.a. and even more so from above. 
she danced for me and camera, over the cloudy sunrise of l.a. on one of our last mornings there. 
out time together was short, but like all things in life, we can't have too much of a good thing. 
delighted to share these fun and free images of sonja; may she truly get all the riches, warmth and beauty life has to offer.
