I popped into St Mary’s Cadogan Street this morning. One of the oldest Roman Catholic Churches in London, dating from 1794. I used to be an Altar Boy there - hadn’t changed at all.

“Chess Table, Rio de Janeiro” was taken in 1960 by Rene Burri. Pity crime and corruption overshadows the city today. Cariocas deserve much better. @peterfettermangallery @magnumphotos

“Mondrian Window” was taken in 1960 by Brazilian photographer, German Lorca. You can see a vintage print at the Utópica gallery at AIPAD in New York (Pier 94).

Had a marvellous lunch yesterday with two “Old Blues”, Mark and Simon. Always good to be brought down to earth. 13 tries, but all from 5 yards out and indeed it might have been 12 (too far back to remember now!).

I’m a big fan of Josef Koudelka (simply impossible to resist) - here his theatrical use of composition has created an image that never gets boring.
