Hello Craig,

I am hoping this is an isolated area and not a general indication of the sad state of Iceland's current economy. I know it was hit hard by the recent recession, so hope this is not typical. Anyway the rusted old car, peeling paint and long grass give a look of abandonment which is well captured here. I sometimes steer away from the pretty postcard shots too and tell it like it really is. Good street journalism imho. Tfs!

Hi Chris

thanks for the critique as always...

yes, this is for sure NOT the norm in Iceland - however, i must say that you will find many abandoned boats and ships.

But in the capital Reykjavik, its 100% clean, elegant, sophisticated, and even more clean!!!! Nothing abandoned in Reykjavik!!

you have to get out of the city to see these rustic homes, but the one posted here was certainly out of the norm.
We did see a number of small homes left abandoned well out into the 'badlands', far away from Reykjavik
