A Friday lunchtime trip to Tate Modern to take in the Elton John photography collection show, A Radical Eye. It’s a pretty good show: more comprehensive than I’d expected and I particularly enjoyed the Imogen Cunningham pictures, which I’d not previously been aware of (and who really deserves a better ‘official’ website). Overall, I felt that there was something missing that left it short of being a really great show, but it still feels like a kind of step forward when the Tate put on a big photography show.

The sun was out, so after the exhibition we headed up to the viewing platform of the new extension (having been up there in August, and back when it opened in June). It’s pretty unbeatable as London views go, even if there view to the west is getting increasingly obscure with architecturally-unimpressive new developments.
