Not sure what happened to the camera at this point, but I do like the dreamy element in all the grey dreariness. It was taken down by the Tjorn when me and Sophie were walking back to Russell’s house.
It was taken the day after we’d seen Sigur Rós as the final part of our Airwaves 2012 adventure, so the last two nights we were in Iceland were kind of wind-down ones, and were spent just generally ambling about downtown in the cold. It’d been lovely and bright up until this point, but those last two days were rainy, grey and windy. Probably a sign that we couldn’t beat that first few days topped off with SR in their hometown :)
This was the last shot I took on the B&W, on the way into town. I love how the grainy film makes it look so old, like I took it in the Victorian era or something. It’s a shame more of the B&W disposable didn’t come out - although I guess that’s the risk you take when you start using old disposables!
this was actually part of the worriedaboutsatan (that’s my band, btw) ‘arrivals’ picturehouse project, but i wanted to stick it on here, as it’s a favourite of mine.
it’s a derelict pub down my road, and had these amazing signs on the metal covers, saying ‘everything of value has been removed’, which struck a chord with me. we also used this photo on the front cover to ‘arrivals remixed’, which came out in december 09.
the metal covers have now been taken down too, btw, so you can see inside it. very eerie.
