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 Daniel Garzee, Jason Lindsay, the Infinity Awards, three perfect lenses, too much gear, Google Photos album sharing, home security and Jason Schneider.

  • In An Ode to the Romance of Photography, Stephanie Wade showcases the "expressive and vibrant portfolio" of Spanish photographer Daniel Garzee. "I am very romantic at my core and I adore classic analog photography," he says.
  • Suzanne Sease explores the personal project of Jason Lindsay that attempts to show "what the world will look like in the future" as climate changes. "The portrait obscured by reflections represents the idea of looking forward and backward in time," he says by way of introduction.
  • The International Center of Photography has announced its Infinity Awards for 2020. The awards ceremony honoring Don McCullin, Hannah Reyes Morales, Nadine Ijewere and the New York Times Magazine's The 1619 Project was virtual.
  • Thom Hogan proposes Three Perfect Lenses for several different systems. 'In general, my priority here is to build a three-lens set that covers as much of the photographic realm as I can," he writes.
  • With Too Much Photo Gear, Kevin Raber, on the other hand, is paring down his arsenal to the stuff he actually uses.
  • Sanjukta Mathur points out the New Controls for How You Share Albums in Google Photos. "Rolling out this week, when sharing an album, the default option will be to share with a specific person or people via their Google account," he writes.
  • In A Humorous Guide to Protecting Your Home From Harm, Miss Rosen looks at Seth Johnson's year-long project just published as Keep Those Bad Guys Out. It's a series of photographs made around his home that offer a lighthearted take on a household burglary.
  • Jason Schneider is Saying Goodbye to the Photo Industry after writing for a number of online publications for nine years. "I am living proof that you can come into this industry and not know the difference between aperture and shutter speed and leave it an expert, one made wiser by the voices of his peers," he writes.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
