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 the Great Wall, Killer whales, prison life, Photo Studio AR, the Gila National Forest and Nikon nostalgia.

  • Solitude at the Endless Wall is a series of fog-shrouded images of the wall taken at the end of February by Andrés Gallardo Albajar. Not a tourist to be seen.
  • Killer Whales Hunt, Eat Gray Whale Calves in Monterey Bay is not for the faint of heart. "The battle between gray whale and orcas took about an hour and a half, but in the end the pod won out," reports Alix Martichoux. They're apparently training the next generation to hunt.
  • Singapore photojournalist Mathias Heng shot some black-and-white images of Prison Life in South Africa. He was shooting a story for the Washington Post about drugs and inmates. "While I was working on this project I met a lot of drugs users and they came from completely different backgrounds, from lawyers to construction workers," Heng says. Often he gained the trust of the inmates by not taking their picture.
  • The $10 Android and iOS app Photo Studio AR "lets you stage photo shots right from the palm of your hand. Select models, modify poses, arrange lighting and capture augmented imagery, then share creations with your audience." Here's the demo:
  • Lloyd Chambers posted some images of Bighorn Sheep, Elk, Wild Horses in the Gila National Forest south of Flagstaff, Ariz. They were moving up to higher summer pastures.
  • In An Exercise in Nikon Nostalgia, Kirk Tuck takes a D300S and D700 on a (dusty) job and lives to tell about it. "The D300S was equipped with an old, push-pull 70-210mm zoom lens with the D700 sporting a slightly used 24-120mm f4.0," he adds.

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