Title taken from the song Mansion On The Hill by Bruce Springsteen. It's one of my favourite tracks on the Nebraska album. In my opinion, the version recorded by The National is even more beautiful than the original.
Although out of context with the rest of this blog post, I would like to share the transcript of a BBC Radio 3 interview with Don McCullin, who is one of my favourite photographers. For those interested, there's another article in the British Journal of Photography.
I've just come back from driving around for three and a half hours... it was a beautiful night. It had snowed for many hours earlier in the day. Once again, the harbour is the source of this wonderful orange / yellow light, which you might have seen in a few other recent pictures, too.
