Ronny Johansson

Eldsjäl
This is Ronny Johansson, but no one calls him that. He is known as Santa from Brandbergen, or in Swedish Brandbergstomten. I wonder why. I met him during the Haninge Day celebrations on Saturday. Ronny is the perfect description of the Swedish word Eldsjäl. Someone truly dedicated to his or her work. In Ronny's case it is all about a popular dance arena that he works with and has helped save a few times now.

I can't imagine why they would call him Santa ☺ Steffe does anyone ever say no when you ask to take a shot.. I asked Jack the same question and he said hardly anyone says no!

Another terrific character portrait!

That's a fine portrait withe the color of his face, his shirt and the wall. But his personality comes through as anything but burning.

The red glow does a great job of enhance the photo.

When I first saw it on the portal, I thought it was a painting.

I love the portrait in all red with a thick white beard.

A fine portrait indeed. The red really works well with the great looking beard.
