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 more National Geographic contest submissions, vintage New York City photos, photos as evidence and wedding photography.

  • Alan Taylor got another peek at the 2015 National Geographic Magazine Photo Contest submissions so far. The deadline is Nov. 16 with the Grand Prize Winner receiving $10,000 and a trip to National Geographic headquarters to participate in its annual photography seminar.
  • Jason Kottke found Vintage photos of NYC from the '50s to the '80s by Paige Powell, David Attie, Charles Traub and Janet Delaney. Is vintage trending?
  • In When Photographs Become Evidence, Niko Koppel reports, "The decision to drop charges against Robert Stolarik for interfering with an arrest he had been photographing in the Bronx in 2012 and instead to prosecute an arresting officer came after prosecutors scrutinized the physical evidence: Mr. Stolarik's digital images." And 22 images from that sequence with a screen shot of metadata from Photo Mechanic are included.
  • In My best advice for wedding photographers, Neil van Niekerk preaches what he practices.

More to come...
