Symbols of the World

The Star of David, Dollar signs, the Masonic eye, Christian Cross and a symbol I (and Google Goggles) don’t recognise. All on a sticker in the Church of Hallgrimur, Reykjavik, Iceland. In the church tower there’s a door leading from the observation area into the warmth inside. This sticker is over that door.
Stranger yet are the pawns on the half-circle of the world, with a cross and four dots.

It’s either some kids having fun trolling the local Church, or an elaborate conspiracy. Tin foil hat time!

Derelict Reykjavik Highrises

What I’ve seen of Reykjavik so far has been really nice. Buildings are colourful, the streets are for the most part well maintained and the city centre has cobbled streets so it’s pleasant to walk around.

While on our photowalk today we passed these buildings on the sea front. I thought they were just another apartment building until I noticed that the balconies were fenced in by planks of wood held together loosely!

Empty Seats in Pairc Ui Chaoimh

One evening while walking near Pairc Ui Chaoimh we noticed the gate at the Blackrock end open so wandered in for a quick look around. I hadn’t been in there in years but it was nice to look around and take a few shots. Must have been a GAA meeting or something that evening …

Like the new theme? It’s Oenology!
