An Unexpected Encounter
On my way through a forest a few days ago I suddenly heard someone playing the flute. I stopped and followed the sound, and after a minute or so I saw this woman standing by the trees. This is Gudrun, she lives nearby in Västerhaninge. She is a pensioner, and is often out in the forest either looking for lingonberries, or playing the flute. And she has notations with her. When she's not playing the flute she sings in a local choir. As I sometimes do I mentioned a few people I have photographed before, including the beautiful priest Sara, and the painter Karen and Gudrun knew both of them. Oh, and another reason for playing in the forest is that her neighbours work night, and she doesn't want to disturb them with her music early in the day.
