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 Syrian ruins, a potbelly stove train ride, Matteo Archondis and Remembering Rhinos.
- In The New Ruins of Syria, archaeologist Ross Burns explains why cultural heritage monuments in Palmyra and Aleppo have been used as weapons of war. The piece is illustrated with his images.
- Alan Taylor presents 17 images in A Wintry Ride in a Japanese Potbelly Stove Train that should warm you up. It's pretty stuff too. The Tsugaru Railway runs between Tsugaru Goshogawara and Tsugaru Nakazato, a 45 minute ride.
- Yesterday was Google Maps' anniversary so graphic design student Matteo Archondis put 3,300 Map screen shots into a two-minute hyperlapse tour of the planet.
- Wildlife Photographers United and Born Free Foundation have launched Remembering Rhinos, a Kickstarter project featuring work by more than 50 top wildlife photographers, including Art Wolfe, Frans Lanting and Steve Winter. The project goes live in about 13 hours.
More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
