iceland 2014 (49)

mural behind a rental bike stall in downtown reykjavík

icelanders seem to love bright colours. many houses are painted in gaudy colours, and many drab walls are covered with rather appealing graffiti, some of which i will show on ST as the series progresses (though graffiti have nothing to do with "silly" ... unless they are meaningless scribblings on the wall ...).
i liked this particular one for its eerie depiction of a giant fly that reminded me of kafka's story "the metamorphosis" ...

Pentax K-x 1/100 second F/4.0 ISO 800 49 mm (35mm equiv.)
