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 Syria's children, buying used gear, a homage to Lilo Raymond and Scott Tansey.

  • At the Atlantic, Alan Taylor has published 35 photos of Syria's Children after four and half years of conflict. "The United Nations now estimates that more than 4 million Syrians have become refugees, forced to flee to neighboring countries or Europe," he writes, "Caught in the middle of all this horror are the children of Syria, relying on parents who have lost control of their own lives and are now being forced to make difficult choices in desperate circumstances."
  • In Guide to Buying Used Photography Gear, Zach Sutton covers lenses and bodies with helpful asides from Roger Cicala.
  • Harold Davis pays homage to Lilo Raymond with his black and white image titled Unmade Bed. "Regarding unmade beds," he writes, "the question is always what was in them before they transitioned into the unmade state. Lilo's photos manage to convey graphic compositional perfection with the suggestion of rumpled love-making, adding the human touch to inanimate objects."
  • The Leica Camera Blog features Scott Tansey: Intimate Images of an Iconic Location, images of Point Lobos south of Carmel, Calif. taken with a Leica S2-P and Leica S (Typ 006), both using a 24mm lens. "The most important aspect that I learned from my Point Lobos images is that multiple visits really helped to capture the magic of the location," he says.
