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 Texas death-row portraits, Il Campo, Siena, rural poverty in Iowa and a photo book arrives.

  • In Photos: 20 years of Texas death-row portraits, Timeline photo editor Rian Dundon presents Associated Press photos made shortly before the executions of these inmates. "Many of them have no family to see them in their final days," he writes. "For some, a reporter with a camera may be the last free person they meet."
  • Harold Davis climbed the 330 steps of the Campanile to get this shot of Il Campo, Siena. He couldn't bring a tripod or camera bag so he stuffed a fish-eye in his pocket and leaned over to take this unusual photo.
  • In What I Have Learned From Photographing 400 Towns in Iowa, Cody Weber of describes the rural America he knew and the one he finds today.
  • Jim Kasson takes A Hard Look at the Book, namely his Staccato photo book. "Well, I now have what many photographers fervently want -- and, maybe, dread -- a garage full of books," he begins. He's not happy with the spine.

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