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 Phil Penman, North Korea, Sebastian Villegas, the proliferation of lens mounts, Joe Pugliese, Belotti restaurant and Ladyboot Arch at night.

  • In Two Hours on 9/11: An Interview With Phil Penman, Dan Ginn interviews photojournalist Phil Penman who biked down to the World Trade Center after the first plane hit 17 years ago today.
  • In North Korea Celebrates Its 70th Anniversary, Alan Taylor presents 28 photos of mass games and parades. "According to those in attendance, the themes this year appeared to emphasize international relationships and to focus a little less on military might," he notes.
  • David Gonzalez follows Sebastian Villegas' trek over 120 miles by boat, mule and foot in Columbia while Photographing Places Blessed by Nature and Contested by Man. "He found a region where the official state has long kept its distance and where people eked out a living not just through agriculture, but also through less-sustainable, extractive means, like artisanal gold mining or logging for fine woods," he writes.
  • I See Dead Mounts, Thom Hogan intones as he considers "what the proliferating mounts mean for the photography community." Only some Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts have legs, he suggests.
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Joe Pugliese about shooting a spread for the Sunday Times Magazine on actor Jeff Goldblum.
  • Thomas Hawk visits Belotti restaurant in Oakland, Calif., "a wonderful Italian restaurant with some of the most amazing dishes." With a Canon 5D Mark IV and an 8-15mm fish-eye, a 100mm f2.8L Macro and a 50mm f1.2L.
  • Harold Davis is Under the Wide and Starry Sky at Ladyboot Arch in the Alabama Hills east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
