Photo taken at the graffiti park Hjartagarðurinn (Heart garden) just off the main shopping street Laugavegur. This young local man was happy to pose for a photo with his dog.

WoW! I thought we had graffiti in Brighton but this is an explosion! Looks colourful and amazing. Such a shame there is so much scribble over some of the more worthwhile pieces. One never thinks of Iceland being like this, so it is an eye-opening piece of imagery.

Spectacular colors in this urban chaotic art. I like the calm of the scene, well taken.

Hi Trevor, very nice shot, attractive graffiti, but much better when there is also a living thing, the young man was kind to pose to you with his dog. excellent composition, colours and all this. And I hate graffiti, but when it is interesting, why not. The place seems drab, so good when there are some colours.

As Brian says - you don't imagine Iceland is like this but my heart could easily be at home in this graffiti garden. We have the guy in th foreground posing for you but also the guy in the background with the sound system which tells us something of the kind of place this might in relation to music - that's why I could be so easily at home here! I like the ironic "wall"rus too... maybe the DJ is playing I am the Walrus by the Beatles!

En mycket trevlig bild. Det går knappast att få med fler färger och smådetaljer i ett foto. Den är också fint komponerad. Mannen med hunden balanseras bra av sälen, bänken bildar en fin halvcirkel och mitt bakom den sitter mannen med ljudanläggningen.

This is a great burst of color. I like street art, and there is certainly a lot of it packed into this one area. The people almost blend in with the background, making them a kind of "living art". The giant seal on the left side is cute. :-) Was the man in the middle playing music?
