Erika

The eyes have it Erika & Ferry
I have a good memory for faces, (most days). I was shooting some photos of the old tree yesterday when a girl driving a lightweight two-wheeled, single-seat car came racing up the path. She circled the tree and when she came closer and stopped near where I was standing I said hello. She was wearing a helmet and it was hard to see her face, but I recognised her eyes (and eyebrows), and told her that we had met before. That was just over four years ago when I was still shooting for the 100 Strangers Project. Since we last met Erika has a new horse, Ferry at a stable in Tungelsta and it is Ferry you can see on the second photo.

I am impressed that you can remember someone you met once four years ago.

I'm lucky if I remember someone from yesterday. Good for you.

You have a good memory for faces. I think I like her hair better today than four years ago; but her green hair was good for a chuckle. Actually, the people I've met who color their hair unusual colors are usually very interesting.

Great portrait. She is definitely someone you wouldn't forget!

I wouldn't forget someone with a horse and cart like that.

Much better now, in my humble opinion, but she looks great in both shots!
