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 La Tomatina, Andrew Lichtenstein, a self assignment, Rebekah Steen, sage advice and the Photo Finish 5K.

  • Alan Taylor tosses 22 photos of La Tomatina 2017 at you to celebrate the 150-tons tomato fight in Bunol, Spain. It's a colorful 72-year tradition which has its own rules of engagement. Not to mention tips like using a waterproof camera.
  • Unearthing America's Hidden History presents 14 images by Andrew Lichtenstein, who revisited historical sites only to find no trace of history. "I was interested in Americans' own relationship to history," he says. "It may not always be to our liking or an interpretation we agree with, like when we saw hundreds of white men screaming 'blood and soil' in Charlottesville. But the idea of connecting and relating to events in the past is what I set out to capture."
  • In Instinct and Intent -- a Self Assignment, Julieanne Kost found herself "in Singapore last week with an afternoon free to make photographs." Take a walk with her.
  • Life's a Beach features a series of underwater shots by Rebekah Steen. "As a whole," she says, "my philosophy revolves around trying to create an 'insert self here' effect or photos that can make you feel like you have been transported into somewhere exotic and warm."
  • In Practice Your Craft, Kirk Tuck gets some advice from his traveling companions about increasing his business. It's all about (fun) time in the water.
  • The George Eastman Photo Finish 5K will be held Sat., Oct 14 at 8 a.m. in Rochester, N.Y. The museum describes it as "a fun way to support the George Eastman Museum and other causes you care about." You can walk if you don't want to run.

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