Up next is the big Iceland gallery, but first, here’s a mini-gallery of Signs of Reykjavik, a collection of graffiti and street signs from our afternoon wander through the city in April. And because it doesn’t fit under that heading, here’s a bonus photo from Selfoss, east of Reykjavik, where we stayed during our trip.
Earlier this month my family and I spent the first week of yet another school term break in Iceland. I’d wanted to see it for years, ever since J. and I moved to Britain and even more since she visited it on her own a decade ago (I was tied up with teaching at the time, and it was her last chance before our son came along). With perfect timing we missed the brief post-2008 window when it was affordable and went for maximum post-2016 crashed-pound expense. Weighed against the cost of school holiday clubs for the kids, though, it doesn’t look so bad, with EasyJet flights and Airbnb accommodation helping offset Europe’s most expensive food prices.
I’ll write a fuller account to go with the eventual full photo gallery, but some initial photos are already up at Detail. With so many wide open spaces to photograph, I came back with a lot of panoramas...
I posted these at Detail last month, but have only now got around to linking them here. As part of this year’s gradual photo-sorting project, here are two galleries of panoramas from the Tasman Peninsula and other parts of Tasmania. The latter is a bit shorter than the former at the moment, but I’m expecting both to grow over time. There’ll be quite a few other galleries of regular photos to go with these eventually.
A month away from the blog and I have a backlog of links a mile long, not to mention a million photos. We were in Madrid for the school term break, and some souvenirs of that trip will eventually make their way here. In the meantime, here’s a Spanish-Australian-South American-tropical mashup from the Lavapiés district. And as a bonus, click through for a small gallery of graffiti signs.
Time to start adding galleries again to Detail, with a third collection of panoramas from the past few years of camping trips, mini-breaks and outings around Scotland. I have some international ones in the wings as well.
