The Biker Babe

Scarlet Skulls Carina on her Harley Biker Babe Carina
Arriving to the Easy Rider festival at Vegabaren in Handen yesterday I knew beforehand that I would see a lot of gray-haired bikers. Nothing wrong with that of course, but I also wanted something different. Something a bit more colorful, so when I spotted Carina talking to a few friends I walked over and asked her for a portrait. She was a bit surprised that I wanted to shoot her so I had to put on the Steffe charm, and it must have worked because a minute later she had walked me over to where her Harley Softail Deuce 01 was parked. Carina is not a member of any club, but she is often out riding the roads, sometimes with friends but often on her own. I just grab a map, look for a nice road and then head off she told me.

Färgrikt så det förslår! Härligt rött tema hon hittat som är genomgående och bra porträtterat.

What a nice series, Steffe. Send her over here so I can try some portraits, too. The third and fourth, in particular, are wonderful.

Each to their own taste. Beautiful light and portraits but an alien lifestyle to us,
