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 Catalan Castells, Om Malik, Andreas Feininger and popular camera-lens combos.

  • Alan Taylor presents 22 photos in Building Human Towers in Spain. Teams of people compete in creating Castells that reach as high as 10 stories.
  • In With the iPhone 7, Apple Changed the Camera Industry Forever, Om Malik argues with a few surprisingly fuzzy (and even erroneous) technical assertions, "Given that hardware and software are equally important today, Apple's advances in both areas makes it difficult for anyone to beat the company in photography for the masses." The masses, he suggest, can now eat cake. But we still find them oddly bereft of bread.
  • In When Determined Wartime Women Took the Wheel, Rian Dundon presents a series of images by Andreas Feininger depicting women taxi and bus driver trainees in Salt Lake City.
  • The Most Commonly Used Camera-Lens Combinations reports the Canon 5D Mark III leads the list. Scroll down to see which lenses were most popular on each of the top models.

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