Downtown Reykjavik by DagurJonsson

Autumn afternoon view towards downtown Reykjavik taken from the pond (Tjörnin) which is a must place to visit while staying in Reykjavik.

Tjörnin ( The Pond) is a prominent small lake in central Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. Most visitors to the city pass along its shore, as it is situated in the city centre next to the Reykjavik City Hall and several museums. Tjörnin means “the lake” or “the pond”.

Perlan by thalerst

Perlan (English: The Pearl) is a landmark building in Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. It is 25.7 metres (84.3 ft) high. It was originally designed by Ingimundur Sveinsson. Perlan is situated on the hill Öskjuhlíð where there had been hot water storage tanks for decades. In 1991 the tanks were updated and a hemispherical structure placed on top. This project was largely done at the behest of Davíð Oddsson, during his time as mayor of Reykjavík.

No Exit by MacClaus

This work is one the famous murals by Guido van Helten. The mural is located in the Old West End of Reykjavík, Iceland, and represent scenes (selected from the Reykjavík Museum Of Photography archive) from the Jean-Paul Sartre play „No Exit“, performed in the city in 1961 in which the characters Estelle, Garcin and Inez are locked together in a room for eternity. Guido van Helten is a contemporary street artist practicing in the medium of large-scale, site-specific mural works. Black and white converting from a midday shooting.
