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 spiral staircases, Belarus, Paulo Coqueiro, Catherine Nelson, ambiguity and surviving the sun in style.

  • In For the Love of Spiral Staircases, Scott Kelby takes a "photographic look at these circular architectural masterpieces. We share his love of the subject, which we wrote about in Spiraling ... in 2013 (mouse over the image looking down to see it looking up).
  • In Anger and Protest Over a Presidential Election in Belarus, Alan Taylor presents 26 photos of the thousands of protesters who have filled the streets of Minsk and other cities to protest a stolen presidential election.
  • In Don't Lie to Me, Amy Parrish profiles Brazilian artist Paulo Coqueiro, who weaves a photo-based approach to writing to reveal the mysteries and mistruths surrounding the disappearance of photojournalist Tito Ferraz. "Tito Ferraz is not real," she writes. For starters.
  • In Hundreds of Collaged Photographs Form Rich, Botanical Worlds, Grace Ebert showcases the work of Catherine Nelson, which demonstrates "it is in the flourishing variety of the local that the fate of the world resides."
  • Ming Thein begins a new series of photoessays with Ambiguity. It "makes for the kind of open-ended storytelling photography that allows us to fit our own narrative to things and thus manage to satisfy a wider variety of audience expectations," he writes.
  • Kirk Tuck buys A Hat & Gloves to protect his skin from the Texas sun and the goes out Just Out Walking Around to test them out with a GX8 and Meike 25mm lens.

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