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 wimmelbild, an odd camera, the value of a photo, home ownership and grants for photographers.

  • Ming Thein presents "a mixed bag of wimmelbild" in Patchwork, a set of intriguing images the show off "the kind of layering and stacking that results in a high visual density and elements of interest no matter where you look." Shot with a Nikon Z 7 and iPhone 11 Pro.
  • Adrian Hanft built A Camera Made of 23,248 Coffee Stirrers powered by a Raspberry Pi, and controlled with a Nintendo controller. "When I tell people that I made a camera out of coffee stirrers I get an odd reaction. They want to know why," he writes. Adrian, that is not an odd reaction.
  • In The Value of a Photo, Rise Above Research provides an infographic showing we prize our photos most just after they are taken "but recalling specific positive memories and happy life experiences can help with overall well-being and reduce the risk of depression, particularly among young people."
  • Kirk Tuck "celebrates" The Glorious Perks of Homeownership when he discovers a mysterious leak in the kitchen. So what's he do? He grabs a camera, that's what.
  • Lexie Alley lists 34 Grants for U.S.-Based Photographers & Artists Impacted by Covid-19. "You'll find a few big names in here, but you'll also find smaller, statewide initiatives from local community organizations," she writes.

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