Finding family memories

"Years ago when my wife and I lived in the city center in Reykjavík, a young cousin of hers who lived close visited us frequently. We were often home during the day as we were students at the University of Iceland, and I took the photo. Arnar Már (the boy) was a very active and energetic child as the photo conveys. We always enjoyed his visits. I found it when going through old albums and scanned the photo to send him. Today, he is a captain at Icelandair."
