Silent Movie

City Hall, Reykjavík, 2012

Night in the city.

A stranger in a strange land.

Each new vista encountered in my nocturnal ramble akin to to watching a silent play from another culture.

On the surface, everything is self-evident.

Underneath are hidden contexts and meanings.

An event, no doubt, perhaps an anniversary celebration.

The mannequin dressers were working late- it was nearly midnight.

They moved with grace, purposefully.

Ballerinas in a mimed ballet.

Interesting. The aircraft model appears not to have a wing on the side closest to the camera. I wonder what that's all about?

Would have needed a much bigger stand for that, I think!

I think it's the new anti-gravity drive system. Wings are no longer needed since the discovery of an unusual combination of rare earths found in last year's volcanic eruption.
