Ida & Zickan

Enjoying the Sunshine

I was taking photos at Haninge Park in Handen a few days ago where they are building a new apartment building, and when I came around a corner I saw these two sitting on a bench enjoying the sunshine. And if you know me you know that I'm always looking for another portrait. This is Ida and her dog Zickan, who is a parson russell terrier. Ida told me that she works as a nurse. She's born and raised in Haninge, and one of her favorite places is the Tyresta National Park where she used to go horse-back riding for many years. She asked if I had any photos from there and I tried remembering the name of a woman I photographed there a few months ago, but Ida beat me to at as everyone who has spent some time there knows Carola and Buster.

Very nice portrait of a very sweet Swede.

I didn't know parsons had their own dogs, though.

I would not mind being in a hospital so much if she was my nurse.

The dog looks pretty disinterested. You may have to catch him at another time.

Indeed another Nordic beauty. Zickan looks like my old dog, Daisy, who died when she was 15 1/2. A street dog she was, but looked like a Parson Jack Russell.

I think Zickan needs a pair of sunglasses!

A beautiful smile and a cute dog. I followed the link back to the lady with the horse. Who wouldn't remember them?

A beautifully relaxed portrait of a beautiful woman. Just love the dog's eyes screwed up again the sun.

You got the lady, but the dog is squinting the eyes. This make the photo a lot better and even more real...
