Look what I found! Your typical "Volvoraggare" (Volvus Raggisus. A very Swedish subculture of the even more Swedish subculture Raggare that I have shown you here many times before). Driving his pimped car with the hot girlfriend riding shotgun. Oh, and I'm pretty sure they noticed me.

Nora was easy to spot when she walked towards me on a walkway in Jordbro. And well informed. She already knew about this blog and my flickr photos. She is originally from Bulgaria. She enjoys art and is a keen photographer who enjoys the Stockholm archipelago. These days I will always offer to send photos to anyone I have photographed. Nora took me up on that offer and also wanted me to send the previous two candid photos that I had taken of her! That was surprise for me. If you are interested you can see the photos here and here.

Noticed this truck (hard not to), at the Port 73 mall a few days ago. It belongs to Juha Ristimaa from Finland. His Scania truck won the Nordic Trophy 2013. Not surprisingly the truck is called Madonna. The impressive artwork was made by Perrtu Papunen. I talked to the chauffeur who told me that he was on his way to a trucking festival in Poland.

Who doesn't like shoes? I have to confess that the first thing I noticed when I spotted Ananya in Handen a while back was her high heels. And she had no trouble walking in them. She is a student who, if everything goes according to plan is a future dentist. Ananya moved to Sweden four years ago from Bangladesh. She lived in a city and the differences between the two countries are very big. She enjoys travelling and visited Germany recently, she has also been back to the old country once.

Anna Sali was waiting for a friend when I noticed her in Handen so she had time for a few portraits. She works as a youth worker. She enjoys Zumba dancing and travelling. A few places she likes include London, Miami and Gran Canaria.

Met a SAS pilot a while back. Hasse Grafström. He was on a rather long bike ride. From his home in Uppsala to the port city of Nynäshamn. That is around 160 kilometres. He wasn't sure about the way when I saw him in Västerhaninge, so I guided him right. His wife "stole" the car, so he had to travel by bike! His goal was Gotland, and Tofta where they have a house. Hasse is toying with the idea to move there permanently when he retires next year. He took his commercial pilot license back in 1979. One of his hobbies includes travelling, not very surprisingly for a pilot perhaps.

This is Adeline from Bromma. I met her in Handen a few days ago. She told me that she never looked good on photos and I said well, you will now. Adeline works at a preschool. She stays fit by a lot of dancing and visits to the gym. She's got a thing for Spain and have visited both Barcelona and Gran Canaria. One more photo at flickr.

It was the warmest day of the year. Closing in on 30C. Cecilia was sitting by the side of the bike path near City Hall in Handen. She had a flat tire so I stopped and asked if she needed a hand. She did. It was tricky to get the inner tube out, but we managed to replace it, before realising that her pump didn't work. So I guided her over to the commuter station where we filled up the tire. Cecilia works as a welfare officer. Her hobbies include cycling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Nicole is in a band. They play Japanese Rock. She is the bass player. It's a newly formed band, so they don't have a cool name yet. I spotted Nicole as she was walking in front of me near the commuter station in Handen a few days ago. It was of course her cool hair that made me ask her for a portrait.

This is Klabbe, (that is Klabbe with a K as his girlfriend pointed out). He works as a carpenter. Interests include, you guessed it, tattoos, but also fishing (girlfriend butting in again and suggesting the beers might have something to to with that particular interest and I didn't hear any complains from Klabbe with a K.) I met him at Poseidon's square in Handen on a very warm Summer day.
