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 Indycar Long Beach, The Photographer's Cookbook, Brett Costello and the Perseid meteor show.

  • James Law used a Leica SL, Leica M and Leica S to document the pit of James Hinchcliffe in Full Speed Ahead: Indycar Long Beach. "The most fun moment to relive is the moment when the IndyCar comes around the corner at triple digit speed," Law said. "Using a continuous APS-C mode with tracking engaged I was catching moments I never had in the past."
  • In Out of the Darkroom, Into the Kitchen, Liz Logan tells the story of The Photographer's Cookbook, a collection of recipes and food images begun in the 1970s, when Deborah Barsel, a registrar at the George Eastman Museum, solicited recipes and photos for the book. Adams, Avedon, Eggleston, Cunningham, Ruscha, Brassai are among the contributors.
  • Cork Gaines reports that Rio photographer Brett Costello, who had his gear stolen from a cafe on Thursday, "found some of it in a bizarre place: on somebody next to him a security line for media entering an Olympic event." Security was a little lax.
  • Time for the Perseid meteor show, peaking on the evening of Aug. 11 and the morning of Aug. 12.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
