Ex president of Brasil, Lula da Silva, was released from prison last night.
Robert Freeman, who photographed The Beatles among others, died this week - one of his iconic photos:
Paul McCartney said about this:
"Besides being a great professional he was imaginative and a true original thinker. People often think that the cover shot for Meet The Beatles of our foreheads in half shadow was a carefully arranged studio shot. In fact it was taken quite quickly by Robert in the corridor of a hotel we were staying in where natural light came from the windows at the end of the corridor. I think it took no more than half an hour to accomplish".

Daughter's new passport. Daughter's old passport. Annoying.
It could be worse?
It isn't as simple as people imagine it to be when they're inspired by the thought they could learn how to tickle the ivories and take over from where Chas Hodges left off.

Three superb examples of “memento mori” art in two exceptional Parisian cemeteries, the Père Lachaise and the Montparnasse.
The “Flying Demon”, Oscar Wilde’s grave at the Père Lachaise, covered in lipstick.
The striking bronze grave of Fernand Arbelot at the Père Lachaise. This little-known actor and musician (1880-1942) is holding his wife’s face that, the legend goes, he wished to gaze upon forever.
“L’Oiseau” at Montparnasse cemetery, created by the great Niki de Saint Phalle as a tribute to a deceased friend of hers.
If you've never heard of her, watch this (her work, and Jean Tinguély's, just next door to the fab Pompidou Centre in central Paris):
Jessica Mitford, "red sheep" of the Mitford clan.
Properly random photo I took on my 'phone.
Yes, that's a pseudo-Elizabethan ruff.
Did you know that a goffering iron was used to make the pleats in an Elizabethan ruff? There's all sorts of interesting stuff here. http://www.oldandinteresting.com/fluting-goffering-irons.aspx
How many of you remember your mum using this?
And really useful to make a horse's tail, whiter than white! You only forget to wear rubber gloves once...
