The Painter and the Dirt Rider

Winter Sunshine


As it was a very sunny winter's day, (hence the squinting), I decided to go for a bike ride and shoot a few street portraits. This is Ida and Kalle. I noticed them walking hand in hand across a snowy lawn in Handen and figured they would be up for a portrait. Ida lives in Uppsala where the works with psychiatric service for the elderly. Ida is also an artist. She is a very good painter (her own description), and is hoping for an art career. Her boyfriend Kalle, recently moved to Haninge. He works as an automotive metalsmith. One of his hobbies includes motocross racing so I told him to check out the motocross circuit at Högsta.

Another nicely done portrait, Steffe. And I'm glad that you're getting some sun...perhaps some of that snow will melt soon.

Handsome couple - wonder how they met.

Don and Krise said...

Another fine shot Steffe. I wish them the best.

Steffe said...

I should of course have asked them that Meri!


It's not very warm so most of the snow will be around for a while, but it is sunny and we do need sunshine after the long winter.
