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 Patagonia in the fall, Lina Scheynius, dream cars, outdoor shooting tips and Street Photography Day.

  • Patagonia, Adorned in Autumn showcases Southern Chile's "snow-capped mountains, vast plains and windswept lakes" as they appear out of season. New York Times travel photographer Scott Baker visited in the fall but found himself harassed by a storm that could only be escaped by a 10-mile trek. (This, like all our New York Times links lately, is a gift link.)
  • Stephanie Wade presents The Theme of Protection, a visual essay collaboration by Nigora Tokhtabayeva, founder of sustainable jewelry label Tabayer, and Swedish-born, London-based photographer Lina Scheynius. "Tokhtabayeva invited the photographer to curate an image essay through the lens of protection, from her archive of work," she writes.
  • In The Dream Cars of the Car Designers, Paul Stenquist photographs the hot cars that fill the parking lot on Saturday mornings at Pasteiner's Auto Zone Hobbies on Woodward Ave. in metro Detroit. Of course, some of the shiny vehicles got their own environmental portrait as well.
  • Among Kirk Tuck's General Musings is a save-for-reference paragraph on shooting outdoors culled from his experience photographing a recent grape harvest. "The job didn't teach me anything new about photography but reminded me of a few things about shooting out in big, open fields," he writes. Here's just one of them. "Bring a snack; sometimes the nearest restaurant isn't."
  • Mike Johnston reminds us Street Photography Day Is Coming Up! tomorrow. And at the same time, Chris Gampat discusses Why Candid Photography Is Under Threat.

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