A Rainy Cityscape For This Week’s #GVPics

A Rainy Cityscape For This Week’s #GVPics

Brevity is the source of wit, they say. And simplicity, the soul of elegance. Okay, I made that second one up. This week we wanted to showcase those the beauty in keeping it simple.

Remember to continue tagging your photos with the hashtag #GVPics for a chance to become the winner of the next week’s Instagram competition.

Our runners-up are:

Going nowhere fast.


“Ice Ice Baby…”

A real “Skyfall.” With less guns. 

Here today, gone tomorrow.

Even the leaves feel melancholic.

“Less is more” always applies when it comes to weather gear. Umbrellas are futile in this town.

And our winner this week!

Congrats, Þorsteinn. Your photograph nicely combines black and white, dark and light, inside and outside. There’s a T-shirt and Grapevine goodie bag waiting for you at our office.
