THROUGH MY LENS: A walk on the side streets of Reykjavík

Ocean views in Reykjavík

When you’re in Reykjavík, don’t just stay on the main streets.

The side streets of Reykjavík are actually really interesting. What you will see there isn’t close to in any other big city. Just by walking a few streets away you will find yourself surrounded by the kind of houses that Reykjavík once was made of.

Not so long ago I did this and got fascinated by what I found.

The black house on Hverfisgata

This house caught my eyes on Hverfisgata close to down town Reykjavík. A black house with a bright red roof isn’t something you see every day.
