A Study in Elegance

The Priestess

On my long winter walk yesterday I noticed a familiar face near the library in Västerhaninge. It was Sara, the priestess. She always looks great so I tend to ask her for a portrait whenever I see her. On this occasion Sara was on her way to the brick church in Tungelsta, where she was to perform a baptism in around 40 minutes time. The bus was still 20 minutes away so she had to call for a last minute taxi. Probably not a good idea to arrive late to the church when you are the one performing the baptism, wouldn't look good! We had time for a chat and Sara even told me a secret before heading into the library and the warmth in there.

Ja, hun har stil! :)
Kanskje hun kunne inspirere noen i den norske presteforeningen???

She is a beautiful and very stylish woman. Her smile is lovely. Another great portrait, Steffe.

I'd missed your earlier postings of Sarah. How inspiring and yes how elegant. She looks as if she came from the pages of Anna Karenina! Beautiful portraits all...of a beautiful lady.

Amen - now you if you tell us the secret we won't tell anyone - it is not about that murder in the 'girl who kicked the hornets nest?' or the whereabouts of Osama? please post to wikileaks

She is such a beautiful young woman. You could never post too many portraits of her.

Wow, Sara does look wonderful. I had to look at the previous photos of Sara. I like that one where she's wearing jeans. She's elegant and pretty to say the least.

Mark said...

Sara is the secret, a secret weapon to increase church attendance.

Paul said...

Have to agree with Mark, Sara is some weapon. I knew as soon as I saw the photo who it was, very lovely smile. I would attend any church where she was the priest.

Birdman said...

WOW! How did I miss this one?

Steffe said...

You are a curious bunch! If and when I see Sara again I might ask her some more questions about that secret, stay tuned!
