Four Fun Portraits

Collage

My last post from the historical Christmas market in Handen that I visited over the weekend. Four fun portraits, and a slideshow with all the photos. Top left is a Viking family. They were just visiting, and didn't have anything for sale at the market, but I think they are member of the Tattarklanen. Top right shows my flickr friend Jim trying his best to stop Fenja the goat from eating his camera equipment. Bottom left is a fun portrait of the girl who was in charge of the coffee and saffron buns at the museum. She took turns with her mother posing with this rather unusual headwear. Not sure about here name, but I met her at the Christmas market in Västerhaninge a few weeks ago. Bottom right shows Agnes. She 's one of the organisers and runs the museum together with her husband Martin, the Blacksmith. She was in charge of the food distribution and here you see her serving me a hot dog. If she looks familiar it's because you have met Agnes here before. I took a portrait of her and Martin at a musical event in September last year.

A nice series of portraits of some very interesting people. Gotta watch those goats, though, they'll eat anything!
