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 becoming an American, Kost's annual review, copyright knowledge and Josh Sinn.

  • Choosing to Become an American features three Atlantic photographers "in search of what it means to become a citizen of the United States" at naturalization ceremonies in Denver, Milwaukee and Miami. And, if you missed it, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power addressed 15 new citizens at a New York City ceremony in You Are What America Looks Like. You'll need something to dry your tears.
  • In 2016 -- the White Zone, Julieanne Kost looks back "at my year through the images that I've posted using Lightroom mobile to my Instagram account." (The white zone is for loading and unloading only, she explains.)
  • Carolyn Wright invites you to Test Your Copyright Knowledge!. She provides explanations of each issue, too, so you are in danger of learning something.
  • In Secrets Lingering in the Shadows of Baltimore, Ellyn Kail presents Josh Sinn's medium-format images inspired by music. "It can be a tune that's stuck in his head or a song that comes on the car radio as the drives through the city on a cold winter evening." But it's the color that won us over.

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