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 wet markets, Algerian festivals, a worst-case adapter test and Peter Turnley.

  • Robin Wong likes hanging Around the Wet Markets for the photographic opportunities. He shares some advice about shooting in close quarters that applies just as well to most city shooting.
  • In Dreamlike Photos Reveal the Spiritual and the Comic at Algerian Festivals, Sara Aridi showcases Fethi Sahraoui's The Cult of Souls monochrome project.
  • Jim Kasson concocts A Quasi-Worst-Case Adapter Test, mounting a Zeiss 15mm f2.8 Distagon ZF.2 on a Nikon D850 without an adapter and on a Sony a7RIII "with a not-very-good adapter which has about 16-18 um of tilt." And, yes, the test shows the Nikon image is sharper but for the majority of actual photography, the Sony combo "would do just fine," he concludes.
  • In A Hello From Peter, Mike Johnston quotes an update from Peter Turnley that might serve as a photographer's fondest wish:

I continue to photograph every day with joy and feel very much in stride with my vision and in touch with what I want to communicate visually and open to seeing and responding very spontaneously to the world around me.

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