I just got back the scans from all 27 rolls of film from the trip to Iceland.  It’s going to be a bit of a trudge to sort through them — they’re all jumbled, in no particular order, which is the problem one faces with Way Too Much Film and mailing it all off to a faraway lab — so bear with me while I try to put 264 images in chronological order!

I think I’m just going to post the photos as I go along, so the chronology is going to be off, but all of the photos were taken over a five day period in the Westfjords, the northwestern region of the country.  (There were only a handful of film photos taken in Reykjavik, the result of No More Giant Backpack fatigue — *you* try carrying around a digital Leica and a 6+ lb 6×7 medium format camera, plus film, plus sundries, all stuffed in one pack, for a few days!)  And, in keeping with my sensibilities about film, I’m going to show the photos pretty much straight out of the scanner, with minimal-to-no editing, other than minor cropping and exposure correction.  What you see here is basically what I saw there.  And it was all so stunning, even the mundane stuff.

Many more photos to come.
