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 Ming Thein, Lena Weisbek, Neil Perry, Mike Stannard, good used cameras, Camera Raw, Harry Gruyaert and Joe McNally.

  • Ming Thein's series Vault and Arch is "an abstract whistlestop tour of Milan's interpretation of that most fundamental of architectural features: the arch and it's compound, the vault." The almost monochrome images are also almost abstract.
  • The Phoblographer presents the monochromatic Dreamscapes of Munich-based Lena Weisbek. "I think that sometimes the concentration on light and shadow is able to transport the moods better than with the real colors, which distract often," she says.
  • Inspiration Found highlights the photographs of Neil Perry of The Band Perry who "draws inspiration from the grit of classic novels to inspire his visual expression."
  • Mike Stannard's Lone Pine is the Guardian's "tree of the week." Bucolic, you might say. "It is the only survivor of a clump of pines on Raddon Top, an imposing site of bronze age and Neolithic remains," he says.
  • Mike Johnston says he can't really produce a survey of the used camera market but in Guide to Good Used Cameras he manages to make at least one recommendation.
  • If Photoshop Has Camera Raw, Why Am I Using Lightroom at All? Scott Kelby was asked. There's more than one reason.
  • In Four Decades of Seascapes From a Color Photography Innovator, Catie Dull features the work of Harry Gruyaert from his book Edges, which we reviewed last year.
  • Joe McNally remembers when he was Onstage, Offstage, Out on the Road. "I've photographed in Vegas a great deal and I'm an unabashed admirer of the phenomenal talent and athleticism that is onstage nightly in that glitzy city," he writes. And these images prove.

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