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 unknown Diane Arbus images, Arun Chaudhary, lightning at 7,000 fps and Terrapattern.

  • In Eight Diane Arbus Images You've Never Seen, Randy Kennedy looks at some of the artist's early work with the curator of the exhibit that will show this summer at the Met Breuer.
  • In Meet Bernie Sanders' Official Campaign Photographer, Alice Gabriner interviews Arun Chaudhary about his role as of creative director and official photographer of the Sanders campaign. "What I'm trying to do," he explains, "is show people what it would look like if he was president by showing the behind the scenes on the trail, by showing a man writing on his pad. Not the screaming crowds."
  • We've waited in vain for lightning to strike so we could test the Miops trigger's lightning feature. Professor Ningyu Liu at the Geospace Physics Laboratory shows us what we've been missing. He shot lightning at 7,000 frames per second for a playback speed is 700 fps to show what we can't see but what sets the Miops off:
  • The alpha version of Terrapattern, a visual search tool for satellite imagery, can quickly scan large geographical areas for specific visual features in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, New York City and Detroit. Among the example searches are golf courses with sand traps, school bus depots, purple tennis courts, runway markings, nautical wrecks and, our favorite, baseball diamonds.
