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 Christmas lights, Jacques Brun, the Ancient Forest Alliance, Neil Leifer, drone portraits, neon, using sound to shoot and Harold Davis.

  • Guy Lane presents Christmas Illuminations Adorning Homes Across England. Already. But they do set the mood.
  • Parisian photographer Jacques Brun probes our connection to the natural world in Sunset Garden. The project "uses nostalgia and themes of grief, vulnerability and mysticism to construct a dream-like world that plays on common mythology," writes Stephanie Wade.
  • The Ancient Forest Alliance has been photographing The Grim Aftermath of Logging in Canada's Fragile Forests. "I'm going to keep taking these 'before' photos," said photographer TJ Watt. "And it's up to politicians if there's going to be an 'after' shot."
  • Neil Leifer's best shot wasn't his 1965 image of Ali vs. Liston, he tells Tim Jonze. It was his shot from the rafters as Muhammad Ali Flattens Cleveland Williams in the Houston Astrodome in 1966.
  • Wedding, portrait and humanitarian photographer Benjamin Edwards shows off some of his Drone Portraits. But the piece is also a deep dive into the gear, prep, techniques and post processing required to pull one off.
  • Derrick Story takes up The Quest for Neon in night shots. "The crazy colors, radiant glow and sometimes bazaar designs are 'found treasure' when roaming the streets," he writes. During the day, too, he adds.
  • In Pranav Lal Captures Images Using Sound, Tom Page explains the photographer uses "technology called 'The vOICe'" to turn live camera images into sounds. Lal, who is blind, says "For me, more than photography, it is the journey of exploration and looking at an environment."
  • Harold Davis lists his upcoming Webinars through March 2021. A baker's dozen of them, in fact. That will get you in the mood, too.

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