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 World Press Association photo of the year, taking two photo books apart, Pentax lenses and photos of the Cloud.
- In The World's Best Photo?, James Estrin reports Associated Press photographer Burhan Ozbilici's image of the assassination of Russia's ambassador to Turkey won the World Press Association's photo of the year with a split jury. Over 5,000 photographers from 125 countries submitted 80,408 images to this year's contest.
- In A Book Report -- Disassembly, Jim Kasson takes apart a copy of his Staccato to find out why the pages don't lie flat. And in A Book Report --Disassembling a Blurb Book, he continues the experiment with an old Blurb book.
- Derrick Story admits I Now Understand What Pentax Users Have Known All Along. That the glass is great, in short. He's also selling some on his Etsy TheFilmCameraShop.
- Americans at Work: Working in the Cloud features 25 photos by Trenton Moore of Rackspace's offices in three states, including a made-over mall in Texas.
