Russ from Norway – graduating students

Posted by on May 22, 2012 in Blog, Couples, Portrait | 2 comments

“Russe celebration” is a Norwegian student phenomenon, actually based on a Danish tradition.
When students are about to graduate high school, and around the 17th of May, the constitution day of Norway, they are partying and wear special suits and hats. They call themselves “Russ”. Some of them also have special cars. It´s all about having fun and parties.

At the Norwegian School at Gran Canaria, they also have this tradition, and Elise and Fredrik are some of the students that graduate this spring. Those of you who are following this blog, have seen Elise before.
The photos are taken on Amadores beach.
