The Smiling Priest

The Pretty Priest

Time for another updated Stranger portrait. This is the priest Sara. I first met her last summer when I visited the church where she works as I was hoping to take a few photos from the church tower. Since then we have met a few times. I took this portrait during the Haninge Day celebrations at Lake Rudan last month. We talked for a while and I asked if anything fun had happened since I took that first portrait and Sara told me that she had been interviewed and photographed for the Russian version of Marie Claire since we last met. There are no female priests in Russia so I'm sure she was a big hit in the magazine.

I'll repeat everyone else and say that she is the best looking priest I've ever seen. Great shot of her!

She's beautiful and smart! Maybe you'll consider going to church on Sunday ...

«Louis» (who is Lutheran) wonders if she is also Lutheran.

Sitting at the airport in Nice, on my way back home...
taking a quick look at the photos, and I knew I had seen her before..... Made me smile also to read some of the other comments....
So when will you publish your book about people in and around Haninge??

i like this pic!
every now and then i check your blog but now u commented on mine before i did on yours... :)
i only sometimes wished your pics were less big, since i cannot see them entirely... but thats just a minor thing and maybe has more to do with my laptop?

Just click on the photo and look at them at flickr, that should solve it.
