Josephine

Josephine

After shooting a very cool panorama photo at Alby in Österhaninge, I decided to stop at the medieval church and go for a photo shoot there. And funnily enough that was exactly was Josephine had been busy doing. She works with graveyard management and had just finished documenting some of the tombstones at the graveyard when I arrived. I hadn't planned to shoot any portraits, but figured it was a good opportunity, as we were both there for the same reason. Josephine lives at Vendelsö in Haninge and one of her hobbies is soccer. She is a midfielder and plays for Vendelsö IF. But just as the previous soccer player, The Strawberry Girl, that I met earlier this summer, Josephine is out with an injury, and hasn't played for a while because of a bad knee.

She appears very fit and very happy to have her photo taken. Nice!

Oh, I like the tilt of her head and the angle of her leg. Very nice portrait.

Well, I was going to say she certainly doesn't look like a medieval church!

Beautiful girl; beautiful portrait. Again!

Be careful in cemeteries, though, they can be the death of you. ;-)

She looks nervous.

She seems to be very happy to have her photo snapped by a world famous, handsome blogger! Keep us posted . . . .

Wonderful portrait of pretty girl. Too bad she is out of action in her sport.

Another good portrait taken on what looks like a beautiful day.

She could be Italian with her look and has a nice pair of socks.

She's rather pretty to be a gravedigger. Looks like she's out for a jog than checking tombstones.

What a fascinating lady and a wonderful portrait. I love that you photographed her against the solid stone wall yet she is soft and young, as it were, by comparison. How interesting she works with graves and keeps fit with her soccer. It always surprises me how many women play soccer.Hope her knee improves.

Super portrait and commentary.

I was back a day later with my photo friend Jim. We shot some photos and got a guided tour inside the church. And as we walked outside for more talking and shooting I met Josephine again. And I took another photo of her. Here she is with her camera.
