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 Tennessee floods, Alessia Rollo, Harold Davis, Helga Stentzel, EV car camping, 2020 Unmasked, lenses and the Compact Processor 800.

  • The Guardian presents images from various sources of the damage from Saturday's Tennessee Floods.
  • Alessia Rollo sees the world as a continuous construction in An Endless Day. "I try to work on the irrational side, the emotions, the fears human beings have about change and transformation," she says.
  • Harold Davis shot some Succulents with his iPhone that are just, well, succulent.
  • Jason Kottke salutes the Household Surrealism of Helga Stentzel with a link to her Instagram account and Web site for more.
  • Derrick Story describes EV Car Camping for Photographers. "I still think about the 1991 VW Vanagon that I drove for 18 years. I loved it," he writes. "But I don't miss the 16-mph gas mileage, nor the compromised performance at altitude."
  • In A Visual Account of a Disquieting Year, Joe McNally introduces 2020 Unmasked, a photobook by Robin Fader, Susan Baggett and Victor Mirontschuk. "It shows the confused swirl of humanity, conflicted and fearful, but also courageous of heart and generous of spirit," he writes.
  • In Responses to Lens Tyranny, Thom Hogan responds to six reader reactions to his The Tyranny of Lenses article.
  • The Compact Processor 800 is a Kickstarter project to fund an automated rotary drum film processor to process black-and-white, color, slide and motion picture film.

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