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 Pete Souza's picks, an assignment, tumbleweeds and One Shot.

  • White House photographer Pete Souza takes you Behind the Lens: 2016 Year in Photographs. "Yes, there are some historic moments included," he admits, "but mostly I was looking for behind-the-scenes moments that give people a more personal look at the President and First Lady."
  • Thom Hogan suggests An Assignment for the New Year that is strictly smartphone photography (and editing and uploading). Adobe's Russell Brown first suggested the idea but Hogan expands on it.
  • Tired of snow? How about tumbleweeds? In Up to Here, Theo Stroomer documents three tumbleweed seasons. Like everything else, it's getting worse.
  • One Shot calls itself the Russian Roulette of photography. It commissions a photographer to shoot a single roll of film, sells each frame sight unseen to buyers, makes one print of each frame, ships the prints and destroys the film. You don't know what you're getting but you're the only one who has it.

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