I took some time basking in the sunset at Hallgrímskirkja and now the sunlight was reluctantly fading. Not really ready to call it a night after a long day of sightseeing around Snaefellsjokull National Park , I delayed my return to the hotel by randomly chosing a street that seemed to head in the direction of my hotel.
Best decision ever.
I enjoyed discovering an eclectic jumble of small hotels, colorful eateries and shops filled with all sorts of quirky, retro items for sale.
My eyes fell upon a small photography store closed for the night. Interior lights over the widow display made the cameras glow. At once I felt the same fizzy giddiness that came over me as a child seeing Christmas window displays in big department stores. I spent an age looking at the items on display. For a moment, I was no longer on an island in the North Sea, 50 miles south of the Arctic Circle. I was home. This is not simply a photo of a camera in a store window, it is reminder of an awesome memory.
I returned to the store the following day and spent time chatting with the sales clerk, checking out the cameras and purchasing a print. #IcelandMemories
This will be the first of many posts on my Iceland adventure. It is past time I shared the this remarkable journey with all of you. Way past time!
Almost forgot – the cameras used in these photos – Panasonic Lumix and Canon 7DM2 coupled with a 24mm f/2.8 pancake lens.
