Yes, I do love the New Zealanders, a friendly, warm hearted people,generous of spirit. I have traveled to many lands and the New Zealander would have to be one of the most welcoming of them all.
The photo was taken on St Patrick's day in Christchurch. There was no official celebration and parade. Definitely next year, I was told by these two young ladies.
Their smiles reminded me of a poem I read on a wall regarding the community spirit in that city:
Amongst the shards of glass
and twisted steel,
Beside the fallen brick
and scattered concrete,
We began to understand
That there is beauty in the broken-
Strangers do not live here anymore
In workshop I enclose the mural and the said poem.

Two young girls with a smile to the photographer.
Also your both workshop picture are a nice addition.
One of these girls with green hair makes the picture specially
Sharpness and clarity are perfect, also the colours together.
A nice composition, good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Very nice portrait with girl's hair colour matching the T-shirts and conveying the atmosphere of St. Patrick's Day even though there was no parade. And indeed, these are wonderful welcoming smiles.
Thanks for sharing the context in the WS, both interesting images in their own right.
