Mondays In Iceland - #25 - Tourists
Vacation photo rituals haven't changed much since the invention of Eastman's original Kodak: stand in front of a picturesque scene and smile. Reykjavík must have the highest ratio of "snapshots per capita" of any destination, the combination of a small population, numerous tourists and lots of scenery combines in a near orgasm of photography. This Chinese couple could have used a helping hand - it is usually better to have both travelers in the shot. I was too slow on the uptake on this occasion, but the next day I did help a young Japanese woman get a nice picture (she was alone, holding her camera at arm's length) at the Viking ship sculpture. Smiles all around.
As you can see, I'm restarting my Mondays in Iceland series. Too many new pictures to keep hidden and most will also feature a tiny story.
