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 Pamplona, Gordon Parks, Photolucida, Angel's Trumpets, intentional camera movement, wonderful small treasures and an adventure with copyright.

  • Alan Taylor presents 25 photos of the Running of the Bulls 2019. "Held since 1591, San Fermín remains a popular, though dangerous and controversial, event," he writes. Not included: San Francisco resident Jaime Alvarez's selfie, which landed him in the hospital.
  • In It Begins Again: 'the Flávio Story' Retold, Amanda Maddox revisits "one of the most complicated, compelling and revisited stories" of Gordon Parks's career.
  • Jonathan Blaustein continues with the second part of The Best Work I Saw at Photolucida. This part features work by Caren Winnall, Ira Wagner, Heather Binns, Sam Scoggins, Cecilia Borgenstam and Philip Sager.
  • Harold Davis tosses a sprig of Angel's Trumpets on his light box for a delicate rendering of these common but poisonous decorative flowers. We've got two varieties in our garden and can't help photographing them ourselves.
  • Scott Cameron Wanstall explains his process in creating abstract images using Intentional Camera Movement. "It's a really fun technique to experiment with and the results can be jaw dropping once you know what you are looking for in an exposure," he begins. He includes a couple of his own jaw droppers at the end.
  • In The Photographic Time Machine, Kirk Tuck advises, "Shoot more and push aside the agonizing realization that most of the work will never see the light of day or a rapt audience." Or you'll let slip away what can become "wonderful small treasures that surface sometimes by surprise."
  • Carolyn Wright reports the U.S. Copyright Office is hosting Create an Adventure With Copyright on July 31 at 10:00 a.m. ET in Washington, D.C., which will also be livestreamed. "The event will celebrate the role copyright plays in inspiring adventure and how adventure promotes copyright, with a focus on the impact copyright has on photographs, travel books, music, TV shows, and movies," she writes. Registration required.
