Summer Candids

Merry Christmas? Photographer Tess Mercedes
I visited the second annual Targa Florio Svecia event on Saturday. A classic car rally. The participants took to the road for around 2.5 hours, or 120 kilometres around Södertörn before arriving to Årsta Castle. I arrived by bicycle of course, but you already knew that. It was a fantastic Summer day. The area around the old castle soon filled up with fun people and cool cars and also a lot of golfers as there's a course at the castle. Here are a few candid snaps to start with. The phone case on that woman's phone says God Jul. That means merry Christmas, go figure. The second photo shows local photographer Kurt Berglind. I can't remember how many times I have met him at different events over the years. Third photo shows the singer Tess Mercedes. She was performing with her band. They are called Doktor Krall and they play a lot of 1950s music. I have seen them here and there over the years. As for Tess, her real name is Therese Myrhed, and I have probably photographed her on at least four occasions. Photos of cool cars and what have you to follow during the week.

And why not God Jul? Sometimes we need it, even in the summer.

What is that little camera the man is shooting with?

I'm guessing it was a gift from a family member.

It's a Samsung Bob, not sure about the model.

Tess looks like she's stepped out of the 50s in that dress.

It looks like a great event and your photos make me a bit nostalgic - not sure why...
