Last moments in Iceland

I extended my stay in Iceland for another week and promptly got sick after I invited my friend Hilde for a long week-end of Icelandic adventures. Sadly I was in bed most of the time but before I got too sick to move we explored a bit. We attended the elusive Elf School tucked away in the outskirts of Reykjavik. I must confess I was disappointed everything our chatty guide told us were tidbits of lore about hidden people encounters I had already gleamed off of my sampling of Icelandic and Norse mythology. He did make us lovely home-made waffles and coffee and was clearly passionate about his life’s work. We stayed in the center of town in Apartment k’s budget studio which was lovely. I am full of new ideas of how to continue to evolve this project and am very excited to return this summer. These last pictures are a small collection of images that for me captured the small touches that made Reykjavik so charming to me like the shape of a coffee cup, heart shaped waffles, a painting of a small boy crying to symbolize a bathroom, the glowing quality of the Blue Lagoon and how a simple add looks epic to me.
