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 Yucatan, Gordon Parks, Sebastiaan de With, #ShotoniPhone, Thibault Delhom and vintage gear.

  • Alan Taylor presents 25 photos of The Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico from its beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbeanto its inland Maya archaeological sites. A vacation, in short, for your eyes.
  • In How Gordon Parks Became Gordon Parks, James Estrin takes a peek at Gordon Parks: The New Tide, Early Work 1940-1950. The new book focuses on new research and access to forgotten pictures to examine the decade before Parks became the first black staff photographer at Life magazine.
  • In iPhone XS: Why It's a Whole New Camera, Sebastiaan de With, the designer of the camera app Halide, writes, "It's not just a different sensor, but an entirely new approach to photography that is new to iOS." And that means app developers have some work cut out for them dealing with the new beast.
  • Shot on iPhone XS: Users Share Their Best collects a few of the images captured by the 12-Mp dual camera system on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max from owners who post every day to #ShotoniPhone.
  • In Thibault Delhom's Photographic Images, Jenni Miller presents the artist's "photographic creations" made with a Canon 5D Mark II and Photoshop. "My work has been described as 'not made to please,' but as sincere -- spontaneous and thoughtful at the same time and existing in a world outside of time, where curves serve as language," he says.
  • In Vintage Gear Photographers Can't Part With, Greg Scoblete asks a few photographers why they're keep some very old stuff around.

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