Mounted archery anyone?

Caroline
Lindy Hop Anyone? This is Caroline. I noticed her lipstick, hair, and outfit in Handen yesterday, hard not to. After a bit of hesitation I decided to ask her for a portrait. Caroline recently moved to Handen from Norrköping. She works as a substitute teacher. A tough gig as she can be called in with just an hour or so to prepare. On her free time she enjoys Lindy Hop. And Mounted Archery, which is a new sport for me, but after hearing Caroline's explanation of how it works it sounds very tricky.

She is very attractive and very stylish, Stefan. Mounted archery? Uh, no, I have never heard of it.

Härligt närgånget porträtt på ett fascinerande objekt. Färgstark på många sätt! Du har näsa för att hitta motiv i din omgivning. Bra jobbat!

Och nog tusan behövde jag läsa vad sporten handlade om via länken du gav. :-)

She's lovely Steffe, beautiful auburn hair. I think it would be hard enough to hit the target standing, how much trickier when riding oui :)

Have I seen her on BBC ???

Love the colour of her hair, and that slightly vintage style. Mounted archery sounds pretty dangerous!

Cool retro look!

Mounted archery was the sine qua non of western movies...and the Indians were very, very good at it. They probably would have defeated the white eyes if the white eyes didn't get ahold of Colt revolvers and rifles!

You do find some attractive women to photograph. Must be your smile. :)

Or my eyes! If you want to see a few more photos of Caroline you can do so on her blog. I took some portraits with her new camera. You will find that post here.

She is a great beauty as are the flowers from your previous post.
