The Strawberry Girl

The Strawberry Girl

Heading home from the beach on the warmest day of the summer so far (this was a few days ago), I stopped at Håga to buy some strawberries from the stand by the side of the road. This is Tove. She is from Västerhaninge and come the fall, she will be a ninth grader at the Ribby school in Västerhaninge. This summer she will be busy selling strawberries and cherries. And when I left with my purchase, there was a long queue of cars at the bus station near Mulstavägen, so business was probably very good today. Tove is into soccer and is a member of Tungelsta IF. Because of a foot injury she hasn't been able to play for a while, but when she is fit again she will join the Tungelsta ladies team. And probably score a few goals. Go Tungelsta!

Thanks Abraham. If you mean that I take a lot of portraits and meat a lot of people you are correct Leif.

When I'm out and about, Steffe, and I see someone interesting, someone I'd love to photograph and talk with, I think of you and your portraits. But I still don't have the courage to do what you do. Wish I did. Maybe someday. You are an excellent teacher.

Nice portrait. I'm struck by the size of the sunglasses she is wearing.

Veautiful portrait, I have never seen a soccer player like this. Strawberries and cherries are my favorite fruit.

Very nice photo Steffe, I thought at first you meant the strawberry blonde. I would have stopped and bought some too!
