Of all the pictures I took during my short stay in Sweden, this has always been one of my favorites. I met this woman at a crawfish party 7 years ago. It is strange how a picture evokes the feelings we had back when it was taken. Although this picture belongs to a period in my life which I no longer wish to relive, I still feel happy just by looking at it. It was a beautiful day, and I was in the company of good people. The mood was very festive, celebratory, and as optimistic as the promise of a new day.
