Reykjavik walk

Graffiti Laugavegur 77On Good Friday I walked all around downtown Reykjavik, enjoying the near-empty streets, and wondering what happened to the city centre. Laugavegur, the shopping street, is turning into a hollow core for a small city occupied by people in cars who prefer large parking spaces and malls.

Still, the graffiti takes on an intensity in the late-winter sunshine. I put some of the snaps on Flickr.

Somehow I didn’t have the heart to take photos of all the vacant buildings bought up by real-estate developers, rows of houses boarded up, waiting for the wrecking ball. Downtown Reykjavik is waiting to be rebuilt, one house at a time.
