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 Dimitri Mellos, what an old camera can teach you, Chambers' ultimate accessory, Tokyo vignettes and a new stadium in Atlanta.

  • Chinatown features a set of images by Dimitri Mellos who got his start walking around Athens with a Kodak Instamatic camera with no film in it, pretending to take pictures. New York's Chinatown reminds him of the old city center in Athens, he says, though it is "succumbing to the forces of modernization and gentrification."
  • In Texturists Versus Contextualists, Kirk Tuck suggests "rummaging around to find that old point-and-shoot from ten years ago" and then "go looking for subject matter than interests you for more than just its ability to serve as a canvas for your craftiness." And don't put film in that old camera either.
  • In My Mercedes Sprinter Photography Adventure Van, Lloyd Chambers shows off the ultimate photographic accessory. Could have saved a few million pennies, though, with a Renault.
  • Ming Thein presents a few Living Tokyo Vignettes that illustrate "a little chaos and humanity."
  • Maybe by the time you see this Scott Kelby's Photographing the Falcon's Amazing New Stadium (And Why My Full Post Isn't Ready) will actually have more than his one iPhone shot using Portrait mode up. Terry White kept him up until nearly three in the morning after the game.

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