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 Hanna Antonsson, Transnistria, the Rokinon 12mm f2 lLens, Canon primes MTFs, Alan Schaller, preferred Raw converter(s) and Back-Up Your Lightroom Catalog Monday.

  • In Hanna Antonsson's Abstract Photography Embraces the Beautiful and the Strange, Stephanie Wade presents a selection of the Swedish photographer's "curious images with similar graphic elements that vacillate between being intriguing and confusing."
  • Cédric Viollet's Eastern Exposures were made in Transnistria, "the no-man's land between the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine." Cut off from the world, Viollet found the country to be "a prisoner of monotony."
  • Derrick Story shows off some (heavily post-processed) Landscape Photography With the Rokinon 12mm f2 Lens. "The Rokinon is a manual focus lens, but that's not really a drawback for an optic that has an effective focal length of 24mm, especially on a Micro Four Thirds sensor," he writes.
  • In Just MTF Charts: Canon Prime Lenses, Roger Cicala has published "the first post of a series of posts publishing all of our MTF results so that methodology is consistent, easy to find and up-to-date."
  • Streets in Mind explores New York City through the lens of London-based street photographer Alan Schaller, "whose surrealist, geometric eye reveals the hauntingly intimate beauty which exists in the hustle of every day life in the Big Apple." Here's the trailer for the SmugMug film released today:
