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 Iceland, your camera roll, an early start, a $40,000 grant, the future and kindness.

  • Alan Taylor presents 21 Images From a Changing Iceland by Sean Gallup after shooting the effects of climate change there for a week. "Gallup reports that the faster melting of Iceland's ice caps is affecting the flow and shape of rivers and that the decreasing mass of the ice caps is increasing the chances of future seismic and volcanic activity," he writes.
  • In How to Tame Your Camera Roll, John Paul Titlow lists a few "relatively easy ways to organize, cull and curate the overflowing archives of photography in our lives."
  • Get Up Early, Kirk Tuck writes, and get lucky. "I'm not even sure I need to record the images anymore," he observes. "It seems to be enough just to stand quietly, in a remote location, in the stillness of early morning, watching the world come alive with color and light."
  • In Black Women Photographers and Nikon Announce $40,000 in Grants, Ellyn Kail spills the details on the grant-fund.
  • In Where Is the Camera Industry Headed? Lloyd Chambers speculates on where things go from here ("here" being the "the golden age of photography").
  • Always Kill Them With Kindness is a do-unto-others story that engendered similar tales in the comments written by a guy one commentor called "the kind of person I would love to be around."

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