Iceland part 10: Blue Lagoon

July 11th, 2011

The food at the restaurant was photogenic, but overpriced and blah so I wouldn’t recommend that. Otherwise The Blue Lagoon, while admittedly  a little played out, is unmissable. Saw this filming while we were there, I can only hope I’m not floating around in the background wearing a silica mud facemask…

    Love it Kris! I haven’t been about the blogging world a lot lately (been in hospital for major emergency surgery….very dramatic, blah blah blah). So it’s nice to have loads of great photos to look through! Iceland looks amazing. I was invited to exhibit my work there and give a talk (the same talk I’ve given before and the same subject I’ve been writing on for the past 5 years now, photojournalism being turn into fine art). However, I had to decline because of my health (damn it!). However, I might be doing it next year, so until then I’ll just have to drool over your beautiful photos. You’ve got a gift girl!
    Hope you are keeping well miss! xo

    PS:- Am I imagining things or did I see you got the Fuji X100? Can I ask, what do you think of it?
    I was hoping to get the Leica M9, but obviously it’s so expensive I’m staving off for a while (not the the price will drop that much with it being Leica), but I’ve heard good things about the Fuji X100 as a cheaper choice of Rangefinder camera. I’ve had to take some time off work because of my health/surgery and that’s the crap thing about being a fulltime/freelance photographer if you get ill, you’re screwed and broke. So, the Leica will be pushed back even further. I’m heading to back to the States (for how long who knows) and starting to shoot a documentary series for exhibition and publication. I’m thinking the Fuji x100 would be a great alternative to lugging all the digitals and medium format gear about. A nice little rangefinder to make my life a bit lighter, esp in a hot climate.
    So, what do you think of it? Better or not as good as your digital gear? I know it can be tricky to get used to, but is there a big difference in the quality/end result?

    Sorry to plague you with questions! Probably should have emailed you.

    Beautiful! Though I must say the guard in fluorescent yellow garb in the fourteenth photo seems a bit out of place :) A smidge more intimidating than a lifeguard!

    Went there this easter and simply fell in love with the place even though the houses abandoned due to the recession did give me icy shivers. There’s just so much to photograph, especially downtown. Also loved the Blue Lagoon and if you’re still there I definitly recommend the restaurant Fri Frakkar (spelling?) roughly translated it’s “three coats”.

  28. beautiful pics!
    the water looks as if it was painted with something… :) baby blue soap, maybe. :D
    quite surreal.
