Ananya

Ananya High Heels
Who doesn't like shoes? I have to confess that the first thing I noticed when I spotted Ananya in Handen a while back was her high heels. And she had no trouble walking in them. She is a student who, if everything goes according to plan is a future dentist. Ananya moved to Sweden four years ago from Bangladesh. She lived in a city and the differences between the two countries are very big. She enjoys travelling and visited Germany recently, she has also been back to the old country once.

Raspberries

A Raspberry Hallon
Soon it's raspberry season. I have stopped twice at this bush in Västerhaninge in the last few days. A bit unripe, but good enough for a few macro photos

The Pilot

The Pilot
Met a SAS pilot a while back. Hasse Grafström. He was on a rather long bike ride. From his home in Uppsala to the port city of Nynäshamn. That is around 160 kilometres. He wasn't sure about the way when I saw him in Västerhaninge, so I guided him right. His wife "stole" the car, so he had to travel by bike! His goal was Gotland, and Tofta where they have a house. Hasse is toying with the idea to move there permanently when he retires next year. He took his commercial pilot license back in 1979. One of his hobbies includes travelling, not very surprisingly for a pilot perhaps.

She stays fit by a lot of dancing and visits to the gym. She's got a thing for Spain and have visited both Barcelona and Gran Canaria. One more photo at flickr.

A Helping Hand

Cecilia
It was the warmest day of the year. Closing in on 30C. Cecilia was sitting by the side of the bike path near City Hall in Handen. She had a flat tire so I stopped and asked if she needed a hand. She did. It was tricky to get the inner tube out, but we managed to replace it, before realising that her pump didn't work. So I guided her over to the commuter station where we filled up the tire. Cecilia works as a welfare officer. Her hobbies include cycling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Nicole

Nicole
Nicole is in a band. They play Japanese Rock. She is the bass player. It's a newly formed band, so they don't have a cool name yet. I spotted Nicole as she was walking in front of me near the commuter station in Handen a few days ago. It was of course her cool hair that made me ask her for a portrait.

Pick Your Color

#lambotaxi Lamborghini Gallardo
It's a hard pick. Do you want a lime green Lamborghini Gallardi, or an orange #lambotaxi? I just can't decide!

A Profile Portrait

A Profile Portrait
This is Klabbe, (that is Klabbe with a K as his girlfriend pointed out). He works as a carpenter. Interests include, you guessed it, tattoos, but also fishing (girlfriend butting in again and suggesting the beers might have something to to with that particular interest and I didn't hear any complains from Klabbe with a K.) I met him at Poseidon's square in Handen on a very warm Summer day.

Summertime...

Summertime...
...and the living is easy. What better way to spend a lazy Summer day. Sunbathing at home, without a care in the world. I was out on a bike ride with a friend and while I was taking a portrait of a (you guessed it), cute girl he spotted this scene and when I caught up with him a few minutes later he just said look at the window.

These Boots Are Made for Walkin...

These Boots Are Made for Walkin...
...and shooting. I was enjoying coffee at my favorite cafe when Ellen arrived. As soon as I noticed her boots I knew that it was time for a photo. She bought them at Myrorna for only 325 SEK.

Petit Goatee

Petit Goatee
It was Johan's beard that I noticed first when we met in Handen. He is very interested in brewing. Be it coffee (he is a barista), beer or wine. It's something he inherited from his maternal grandfather, a man he never met. Five years ago he made his first wine. An apple wine with strawberries and raspberries. It was spectacular in it's taste and Johan was immediately hooked to the art of wine making. And he still have a few bottles left from that first vinification.
