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 April blossoms, two 15mm lenses, Markus Brunetti, Elad Lassry and Peak Design's new store.

  • In April Blooms: Spring Is on the Way, Alan Taylor provides 25 photos of tulips, sunshine and cherry blossoms from North America, Asia and Europe as evidence that salvation is at hand. As, we note, the Pineapple Express rolls into town tonight.
  • Thom Hogan evaluates Two 15mm Manual Focus Choices, both under $600 and surprisingly well-engineered. Be sure to catch his lens testing trick at the end of the article.
  • In Viewing Europe's Houses of Worship in Wild Detail, Roberta Smith reviews Markus Brunetti's detailed images of European cathedrals, churches and cloisters, now on view the Yossi Milo Gallery in New York City.
  • Pier 24 Photography will host a free lecture by artist Elad Lassry as part of the Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Program on ASpril 12 at 7 p.m. at California College of the arts. Lassry "mines the visual culture of still and motion pictures, engaging traditions of story-building with images and the ghosts of history that linger with images long after they have been withdrawn from their original contexts."
  • You'll find the Peak Design Flagship Store at 629 Hayes St. in San Francisco. "Whether you're in need of camera gear, everyday bags, product support, inspiration or just looking to talk shop, our friendly staff of experienced local photographers is here to help," the site home page says.

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