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 Debbie DiCarlo, Rembrandt, a special Kost presentation, mannequins and the Fujifilm GF 35-70mm.

  • Dan Havlick tells The Story Behind Debbie DiCarlo's 'Howling Lesson' Photo. "It's hard not to look at this shot, which shows an adult coyote surrounded by two pups in the midst of a full-throated group howl and not smile," he writes.
  • Grace Ebert features the 717-gigapixel photo of Rembrandt's 'The Night Watch'. "A team at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, which is currently housing the art historical work, captured 8,439 individual images to create the gigantic composite that leaves just 0.0002 inches between each pixel, which themselves are smaller than a red blood cell," she writes.
  • Julieanne Kost will present Creating Personal Projects on Jan. 8 for the Royal Photographic Society as an online event of about an hour followed by a live Q&A. Registration is free but required for the event.
  • Kirk Tuck indulges his whim for More Mannequin Art, these shot with the Leica CL. "I know my visitors here are probably tired of mannequin photos but I find them charming because they don't move too much, are easy to work with and don't require lunch or payment," he writes.
  • Jim Kasson continues his exploration of Field Curvature in the Fujifilm GF 35-70mm. This time he tries a modification of Roger Cicala's "quick an dirty method" to try to pick up any distortion in the corners. Results: "This is a flat field for any zoom, and really flat field for a kit zoom."

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