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 the Nikon Small World winners, Drew Doggett, Google's new Pixel Clip camera, Adobe Portfolio's new trick, the effect of distance on filters and Gitzo at 100.

  • Alan Taylor presents some of the Winners of Nikon Small World 2017. "The contest invites photographers and scientists to submit images of all things visible under a microscope," he explains. "More than 2,000 entries were received from 88 countries in 2017, the 43rd year of the competition."
  • In Shadows Alight, Drew Doggett documents several U.S. national and state parks, including Yosemite, Grand Teton and Olympic. "My generation faces extraordinary pressure and challenges to protect our natural resources," he says. "In certain areas, we are approaching the point of no return with the negative effects of climate change and pollution."
  • In Ubiquitous Photography, Paul Melcher suggests Google's new Pixel Clip camera "just might have open the door to a new type of photography, one that is powered by smart IoT's and is completely ubiquitous." Here's a clip of the Clip, he cites:
  • Juileanne Kost demonstrates hot to Publish to Adobe Portfolio From Lightroom Mobile, a new feature Adobe announced yesterday. Portfolio redefined what it means by page, too, she explains. It's just a page now.
  • Jim Kasson continues his study of filters with Filter Reflections Versus Focus Distance. He shows why you might want to take your UV filter off when you have light sources in the frame.
  • In Gitzo Is 100!, Joe McNally shoots the company's "Framed on Gitzo" campaign and the 100th Anniversary celebration. "Open book type of an assignment," he writes. "Go make a cool picture and use a Gitzo tripod, which is what I do anyway. Timing coincided with a trip to Hawaii." Aloha.

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