Photography knows no language barriers
Masha is a true Siberian girl, a fitness model from Novokuznetsk, Russia.
I met her driving a beautiful yellow jeep on a hot day while I was strolling on one of Phuket's beaches.
A movie like scene, I remember, and I was lucky to have a camera on my shoulder.
Fearing she might drive away, I've approached her hastily.
Turned out Masha spoke no English, and my knowledge of Russian at the time wasn't the greatest one either.
Nonetheless we managed to do couple of great shootings during our holiday as we lived nearby while we were enjoying the warm Thai sun.
It was a good winter indeed!
