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. This time we look at Alberto Selvestrel, Sally Mann, the Nikon 70-210mm AF-D, phone photography and the Just Mobile ShutterGrip.

  • Alice Finney invites you to Peek Through the Gaps in Alberto Selvestrel's Photographs. The Italian photographer was inspired by Joel Meyerowitz to create his Images series in which "he captures homes peering over hilltops, church spires poking up into window frames and fluffy clouds between concrete walls." Fun.
  • In Sally Mann's Haunted South, Vicki Goldberg reviews Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings, an exhibit covering most of Mann's 40-plus-year career at the National Gallery of Art.
  • Kirk Tuck found a Nikon 70-210mm AF-D for $79. "Hey! Guess what? This lens works really well," he enthuses. We like our Vivitar Series I 70-210mm Macro zoom from the 1980s, too (which we use on our Nikon dSLRs and Micro Four Thirds camera).
  • Terry Burnes muses about Phone Photography with an interesting discussion of useful accessories.
  • Among which is the $30 Just Mobile ShutterGrip, a Bluetooth grip (with removable shutter button for remote use) that includes a tripod mount and lanyard hole.

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