A little summer light reading

A little summer light reading

I stopped at the nature park Slätmossen for a few photos the other day and that's where I met Andrea. She had a day off work and was sitting on this bench and table reading a Nick Hornby novel, Slam. Today Andrea lives in Handen, but for two years she lived in Thailand. Together with a friend she owned a restaurant at Koh Phangan. It was called Sultan Cafe. They focused on a Swedish/Mediterranean menu as her parter was from that area. The restaurant is now history as the 7-Eleven chain bought the land. This is my third portrait from this great park. Earlier this year I met The Sun-Worshippers here and last February on a warm and sunny day I shot one of my first ever portraits when I met Kristin here.

She looks really relaxed, like she was a model. Your portrait is very good and I think that this time you may own a bit of merit to the model.

What an excellent portrait. You capture her as she is reading. But you capture much more. We get a sense of her before this moment and after this moment. That's a remarkable skill, to catch that in a single frame.

I have said since the days of Kristin that your portraits of people are just flat-out stunning. Your gift of gab or your ease in meeting strangers and getting them to pose or be photographed is nothing short of a wonderment. Nice shot Steffe,

I'm glad to see another portrait of a beautiful woman. You do those very well. I wonder why that is? :-)

Steffe, as a recent follower of your blog, I am impressed. I think taking on the stranger challenge was a great idea and you are doing a great job with it. I will be following along.
