About My Blog

Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7

Hverir is a large geothermal area of mud pools, fumaroles and sticky red dirt. It's hot and stinky and not unlike being on another planet.

Definitely worth a look if you're traveling in North Iceland!

Seydisfjördur is a picturesque little town in East Iceland. My favorite site was Olive's black boots on this colorful, brick walkway.

Evening, low tide, fog hovering, we could hear waves breaking on the sand bars beyond the harbor. It felt so special, so different. Maybe because it was Iceland???

Beautiful beaches, green farms and fields and glaciers too! We spent half a day hiking on Fallijökull Glacier. Fallijökull is small part of a huge glacial system in Vatnajökull National Park, Southeast Iceland.

Just around the corner from Vik is Reynishverfi Beach. "Dramatic landscape" is my go to phrase for Iceland.
