Mumford & Sons album Delta is awesome

I only just noticed that Mumford & Sons have a new(ish) album, Delta. I’m listening to it as I work, and it’s really good! I’ve basically had “If I say” on repeat for the last 15 minutes:

You can listen to the whole album on Spotify, and wherever else fine albums may be streamed or purchased.

A wintery Jerusalem day trip

We went on a wintery Jerusalem day trip yesterday with family. I made a point of capturing more scenes with my camera, bearing in mind Eric Kim’s photography advice for 2017 (particularly point 2). I really like many of the photos I made. I think I’m also slowly getting the hang of more of Lightroom’s functionality to tweak lighting in parts of photos to improve them. Here are some of my favourites from the album:

Reaching for the Divine

This moment of this man reaching up to leave a note in the Kotel was a wonderful capture.

Of course the shuk where you can buy (and bargain for) all sorts of paraphernalia.

I didn’t notice the couple on the left when I took the photo. I saw them when I edited the photo. Terrific moment!

Mamilla Mall crowd

This woman stepped into my frame so I just incorporated her into the shot.

Street violinist

This woman was playing higher up on Jaffa Street outside a well-known pizzeria. I had to photograph her playing.

I’ve shared my Jerusalem day trip album on Flickr so head over there for the full experience. Just click on this image below:

I’m enjoying the new Mumford & Sons album, try it

Rian mentioned he was listening to Mumford & Sons’ new album, Wilder Mind, a week or so ago and he was enjoying it. My wife mentioned it yesterday so I tried it on Rdio and loved it. The title track, Wilder Mind, is a great track and says a lot about the whole album:
