the coldest spring + iceland revisited
It’s been unbelievably dreary here in Chicago lately, we’re actually in the midst of our cloudiest April on record with only about 30% of our possible sunshine, cool temperatures and rain constantly. All this weather has had me thinking a lot about my Iceland trip, mostly wanting to go back. I realized that I never posted any film photos of the trip so here are a few of my favorites.

I’ve never been so ready for some spring-like weather. Really this entire month of April has been not unlike other year’s Marches. It’s hard to believe that we are less than one week from May and I wore my puffy coat and rain boots to work today. There are no leaves on the trees really, mostly buds and a few trees that were tricked by two or three 70+ days into flowering early. The poor magnolia trees at my parent’s house always fall for the first warm day, they never learn.
