In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Spider Martin's Selma photographs, a redesigned Luminous Landscape, David Carlier and Waterlogued iPhone images.

  • In Spider Martin's Photographs of the Selma March Get a Broader View, Jennifer Schuessler notes his archive, acquired by the Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas in Austin includes "more than 1,000 images shot in and around Selma, many existing only on negatives that have been kept in a bank box for decades, virtually unseen." And with a show in Selma, another opening at the Lndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in a few days and a show at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York next month, we're going to be seeing a lot more of him. And "Martin's visual fingerprint, some scholars say, is also plainly evident in the current film Selma," she adds.
  • Luminous Landscaped launched a refreshing redesign over the weekend. Kevin Raber explains, "This project began a little a year ago as I was tasked with taking Luminous-Landscape to a new level where we could offer new benefits and begin to look like a 21st century Web site instead of a site stuck in the '90s."
  • David Carlier takes you on Adventures in the Alps with a Leica S. "I love telling stories with my pictures, so the photo reportage format is what I like most," he says. "I also like imperfect, kind of unfinished photographs and image sets that ask questions, are suggestive and create discussions."
  • The $2.99 Waterlogue app for iOS, a favorite of Harold Davis, gets a thorough (and charming) workout by Brian Simpson in Watercolor photos on Storehouse.
