    Unhappy S.O.S from Iceland

    Due to the meltdown of Icelands economy which leaves me without most of my savings I please ask you to consider to buy something from my websites and if you would like a fine art print of any of my photographs on Icelandphotoblog.com but isn't available on my fine art print store just feel free to contact me and I will make it available ASAP!

    The situation past two weeks has left the nation in shock and economical speaking probably 20-30 years back or more. Our currency has lost 70% of its value against the USD and 80-90% against the EURO!

    I don't like begging but at least you will get something in return for your hard earned money.
    Let me know if you think the price is too high/low. I want you to be satisfied and happy with your buy!

    My situation was very good before the weekend (had good savings and almost debt free) but after the weekend my savings and investments are almost all gone and I'm left with more debt than savings. Fortunatly I still have a job but for how long nobody knows!

    My future plans are now in ruins and now I need to find a ground to build another future on. That's why I'm turning to all my internet friends and hopefully someone can help. Every USD or EURO helps!

    Enough assistance will also keep me able to continue my websites and keep photographing and making music for your enjoyments.

    Thank you in advance!

    Ps. I will keep you updated on the progress here in Iceland. If you have ever considered to come to Iceland - now is the time!
    Sincerely,
    Falcon1

    The greed and misuse of others have far reaching consequences. I am very sorry to hear of your situation personally and for your country! My prayers are for this to end some time soon before the world is thrown into total mayhem!
    Admitting that I haven't felt the effects so drastic as my dear friends but I am not immune.

    My friend, let me share with you something I learned years ago when times roller coastered for me, "Tough times never last tough people do!"

    Let's see whatcha got!

    British savers with Icesave have just been informed they cannot withdraw their money (or indeed make any further deposits - hahahahaha). At the same time, RBS aka NatWest share price crashed by up to 40% this morning at one stage. Think of it as a buying opportunity - Wahhahahaha!

    Falcon - how much do want for it?

    Iceland I mean.

    Not yet. At least another 50 of 70 years of turmoil before the fall.

    The important question is when the new Rome will be burning will the fiddle be real or a VST?

    Update: situation is going worse all the time and 2 out of 3 are nearly bankrupt and the 3rd one is struggling for its life. The ISK keeps falling and now there's as many rates on it as banks are many.

    I have created a webpage which contains all the information and I will try to put news on it if something happens for better or worse... can't get much worse than this I think though and hope! The url to it is http://www.icelandphotoblog.com/SOS-...photoblog.html
    Matt, there you can find a Paypal donation link.

    buckshead, they are now two.

    Ern, thank you very much! Yes, I do large prints up to 60x40 (USA size) through my store at http://falconcreations.imagekind.com but if you want larger I will need to check that out.

    Styxx, I have made Hraunfossar VII available on my fine art store - http://falconcreations.imagekind.com/

    Please feel free to ask me any questions you like! Hope I have answered all your questions so far.
    Sincerely,
    Falcon1
