I have a small local project, and can use a empty store as an exhibition and mini studio to shoot 101 locals. So I am trying to get people inside to shoot them, and suddenly one of them seems very familiar, and it is Michael B Tretow, the legendary producer and sound technician of ABBA. Hes been an idol of mine for a long time. Bought his first solo album in the seventies. Naturally I asked if I could shoot him, and I could =) . I was very happy to meet him.

Cool story, and I see you made a connection with him. He seems to have enjoyed the shoot.

Thanks. I fed him with some of my stranger images first =) and he also had a friend with him, that was quite entertaining.
One thing I did not know was that besides doing ABBA, he also recorded one of my blues piano heroes in 1972, Sunnyland Slim. The subject came up as I showed an image built on blues lyrics ( http://www.flickr.com …/in/set-72157614597725921 (external link) ).
