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 the World Report Award shortlist, Greg White, the green flash, Haifoss, untracked astrophotography and ransomware.

  • The Guardian has published the World Report Award 2021 Shortlist. "The award aims for a new form of social commitment through photography," it notes. The shortlist was culled form over 800 submissions from 60 countries and will be exhibited at the Festival of Ethical Photography in Lodi, Italy, from Sept. 25 to Oct. 24.
  • Grace Ebert shows how London-based photographer Greg White elucidates The Seven Base Quantities of Physics with minimal, graphic images. Inspired by Berenice Abbot, his subjects are mass, electric current, temperature, length, luminous intensity, amount of substance and time. They don't blink but they don't stand still, either.
  • In Meteorologist Captures Rare 'Green Flash' in Half Moon Bay, Amy Graff reports Jan Null has seen the green flash. "Once he knew what to look for, he saw it again and again," she writes. And photographed it. His Twitter post last week of the biggest flash he's seen made a, well, splash. "Scientists have established that the green flash is indeed real and not an optical illusion," Graff adds, before getting into the details.
  • Harold Davis captured a monochrome images of the Haifoss waterfall in Iceland, whose waterfalls he finds unique. "They are not like waterfalls I have seen anywhere else, although it is a little hard for me to put my finger on the difference," he writes.
  • Dahlia Ambrose found Nine Tutorials for Untracked Astrophotography. You don't even need a tripod for these.
  • Stop Ransomware is a U.S. government site explaining what ransomeware is, how to tell if you've been hit by it and how to avoid it.

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