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 Eid Al-Fitr, Mirja Maria Thiel, George Aquilla Hardy, the Sigma 24-70mm Art, impulse buys and Andrew Molitor.

  • Alan Taylor presents 32 photos of Eid Al-Fitr and the End of Ramadan 2021. "The Muslim Eid al-Fitr festival, marking the end of the month of Ramadan, began this week in parts of the world where sightings of the new moon were made," he explains.
  • In Love and Desire Among Elder Couples, Miss Rosen showcases a few images from German photographer Mirja Maria Thiel's on-going series All This Love. "Silence is the most common reaction when I mention this project," she says.
  • George Aquilla Hardy, a bored musician, amused himself in Photoshop conjuring up a modern portrait of George Washington. Heather Murphy asks the first president's biographer and an impersonator what they thought of it.
  • Kirk Tuck puts the Sigma 24-70mm Art on his Leica SL2 and likes what he sees. Chris Gampat, however, find the Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 Art behaves differently on a Sony. "Let me be very clear here: the Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art is faster on the Leica SL2s than on Sony's cameras," he writes.
  • Christopher Malcolm lists Three Impulse Buys That Accidentally Ended Up Being Some of My Favorite Photography Tools. "The more your career progresses, the easier it is to forget that photography is supposed to be fun," he writes.
  • In Here's a Thing, Andrew Molitor questions the claim by two professors of anti-Semitism in a drawn portrait of Dan Gertler (which is actually an accurate copy of a photograph). "To nobody's surprise at all except perhaps their own, they project meaning onto pictures," he writes.

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