A Frosty Face

A Frosty Face

A few years ago I noticed an over-snowed chair in a private garden in Tungelsta. During that long and cold winter, I went back four or five times to document the changes of the season, using that chair. I'm thinking about using this sculpture of the author Ivar-Lo Johansson as a marker this winter. The last time you saw Ivar, who spends his time near the Tungelsta commuter station, a caring person had given him some winter clothing. He looked very chic, and rather pleased with that. Now, someone has stolen his colorful scarf, and I sensed that he was a little upset about that on this frosty day.

Looking forward to more Winter photos of Mr. Johansson.

He looks like he needs his hat & scarf back! Looking forward to seeing more of him.

I liked his very swedish hat and scarf, Steffe. He is looking very sad and sorry for himself. Maybe The Knitter could improvise a large gluhwien for him!

This will be a good project. I liked him in the powder clue beret and scarf.

Ye I liked his scarf but maybe he lent it to someone. Hopefully they will return it.

The frost certainly adds a bit more character to his demeanor.

Nice and frosty. I was out photographing the frost here yesterday. Perhaps his scarf will be returned when the frost is no longer here.

He does look a little fed up about the situation Steffe, maybe the person who took the scarf needed it more than he did!
