Reykjavík Graffiti and Other Icelandic Things

It's somehow been months since I've made a blog post (oops!) but this time I have a good excuse. I recently returned from spending two weeks in Iceland and Ireland and I have been sorting through the tons of photos I took during my travels. While my boyfriend and I were in Iceland, we stayed at a friend's house in Reykjavík and spent a decent amount of time downtown. One of the things we loved the most about the city was the graffiti and other street murals and artworks. Once I saw how every other block was home to spray paint of some sort, I made sure to capture my favorites.

Aside from admiring the graffiti, we traveled all along the southern coast of Iceland and were able to get a fair dose of Mother Nature. Despite it being an island, Iceland reminded me a bit of Jurassic Park in the fact that almost everywhere you looked, it was a vast expanse of untouched land or volcanos or ancient lava fields covered in moss. It felt strangely historic and the low-laying fog gave it this sense of being unaware what would happen next or where you were going.

 

The rest of my photos from Reykjavík and around Iceland can be found on the Places page along with some of my photos from Ireland-- that blog post is next and coming shortly!
