Iceland surely is a strange place. One of the most astonishing sites is the blue lagoon. Well. It's a hot thermal source. But it's more than that. It lay in the middle of a field of volcanic stones, a rough moon-like field. The Bath is close to the seaside, that's why there are Sea-Minerals in the water and on you. It's a habit to put a white mineral-paste on you skin.

It ought to be good for something. But maybe it’s just a joke the Icelanders would play with the foreigners ;). The water is very hot and becomes even hotter, if you dare to go closer to the source. In the winter (which is actually the whole year) it’s even more sparkling to feel the difference between the outside and the inside temperatures. Iceland is lucky about their hot sources. Did you know that they just take their natural hot water to heat their homes? For free!
Stop bath is a type of chemical used in the darkroom for processing black and white film, aptly named as such because it halts the development of the images. In this case, stop bath is also part of the title that Korean analogue street photographer <b><a href="http://instagram.com/sooeatsyourstreetforbreakfast">Soomin Yim</a></b> has given her body of work, "Stop Bath the City," to represent the forgotten faces of people in the city amid rapid modernization, captured and immortalized on black and white film.
Venturing into an area when there's volcanic activity is a feat that can only be either courageous or foolish. One thing's for sure, though, it's the kind of experience that not many people share and—should one escape unscathed, like russellmcbride and his friend—a highly rewarding one at that.
I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
