Rickard & Emelie

Rickard & Emelie

Summer is here, and down at my favorite beach I met Rickard and Emelie. They are originally from up North in Sundsvall, but are now living in an apartment at Södermalm in Stockholm. Rickard is a craftsman and Emilie works in retail. Both of them are former football players, but have given up the sport now. Emelie was a centre back in a second division team so she must have been a good player. Rickard spends a lot of time in the gym these days. After I had taken a few photos they were happy to get back up on dry land again as the water here in the Baltic Sea is still a bit on the cold side!

Gorgeous photograph, Steffe. But no rings or tatts ... or did I miss them?

I can't imagine doing this in the Baltic at any time of year. You got a good portrait, though.

Maybe they even like to eat surstromming since they lived so close to my relatives in Ornskoldsvik!
Nice portrait of those soccer players!

Can maybe see the tiniest line of it. Do YOU have a tatt, Steffe?

Steffe said...

I was toying with the idea of getting a tattoo of an old camera. Hasnt happened yet, the reason being that I know that it is hard to stop once you get that first tattoo
