I spent today in the studio, working on some animation. Here's a still:

Tomorrow I off to go around the Golden Circle, which should be an adventure! My camera is acting up, so I'm a little nervous about my ability to get footage ... I'll reassess in the morning. I feel like this trip has been a bit bumpy---my camera stopped working with my computer (dragonframe) in its normal way, my phone won't work at all (unlike in other places/countries I've been), my debit card won't work correctly, and now my camera... I knew I should have brought one of my older cameras with me, but since I had zero problems with anything last year in Svalbard (Norway), I think I was a little careless this time.

I did end up deciding to leave the residency early for a family medical issue back home. So this is my second (and last) week in Iceland. I'm a little sad that I can't stay the full five weeks, but know I'm making the right decision going back to Minnesota.
