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 loneliness, color images, sky shots and Malaysia.

  • In It's Time to Talk About Loneliness, French photographer Cedric Roux discusses his project Solitude Urbaine, which portrays "the phenomenon of loneliness in cities around the world, evoking the sense of isolation, which millions experience on a daily basis." Contorted but not posed body positions, he notes, were intentional.
  • In the long-awaited first part of Baker's Dozen: 'It Must Be Color', Mike Johnston celebrates readers' images that "have to be in color."
  • In The Folder Full of Sky, Kirk Tuck explains why you should collect images of your "Morning skies, evening skies, big Texas Cloud skies, glowering thunderhead skies, high/thin/cloud skies and every other sky you can think of." You can do this without breaking a sweat by creating a smart folder in most DAM applications.
  • In A New Chapter for Malaysia, Ming Thein presents a photoessay of the election in his country, Malaysia, of the opposition party despite a "kleptocrat wanted by several countries for stealing his own people's (i.e. our) money and introducing draconian laws and tricks to do every single thing to keep himself, wife and cronies in power." The images were taken by chance, actually. "I happened to find myself in the area after agreeing to meet a friend for dinner and curiosity got the better of me," he writes in the comments.
