Mondays In Iceland - #11

Fríkirkjan, Reykjavík, 2006

There is that brief moment: when the last chord has faded, when the applause has stopped, when the show is over. Some patrons, keen on a fast exit, hurry out- perhaps to an after-party. Others talk among themselves, comparing mental notes and reactions.

A few remain quiet and still; reliving the experience again in memory; not ready to let the mists of time dissipate it; one more moment of sweet oblivion.

An old man stands in the doorway, savoring his moment.

It was Jóhann Jóhannsson, at the Airwaves Festival. There is a set of pictures of the event on Flickr:
