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 Wildlife Photographers of the Year, the Gulf coast, conservation, camera production, wild elephants, the Fujifilm 120/4 GF at 1:1 and a photo contest.

  • In First Look: Wildlife Photographer of the Year 57, Alison Groom presents a selection of images from this year's Natural History Museum contest. The winning images will be announced Oct. 12.
  • Satellite images from Maxar Technologies reveal the Gulf coast Before and After Hurricane Ida.
  • Grace Ebert features images that document Contemporary Conservation Efforts from Origins, an exhibition at Hilton Asmus Contemporary in Chicago.
  • Thom Hogan calls the current manufacturing crisis Production Roulette. "Everyone has been consolidating plants and making themselves more vulnerable to disruption," he writes. "As if that weren't enough, China's saber-rattling regarding Taiwan raises another potential point of disruption to parts supply (and manufacturing of phones and computers)."
  • Kevin Raber discusses Art Wolfe's new photobook Wild Elephants with him in a 25-minute video:
  • Jim Kasson shoots the Fujifilm 120/4 GF at 1:1 With Tubes. He finally found his 45mm extension tube.
  • In Stipulated! Mike Johnston worries "about what I might inadvertently have done to my own poor blog!" He doesn't want to offend 90 percent of the participants in his most recent Baker's Dozen photo contest. "So let's just stipulate this: all of the pictures submitted are pretty darn wonderful and, in almost every case, I can see why you treasure them. So, no losers." It's not really a game, this photography thing. It's a miracle.

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