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 some photos of the week, little cameras, , favorite purchases, scam reporting and Poitier's lesson about soft can'ts.

  • In New Year, Mammoth Mountain, Sea Scream, Alan Taylor presents 35 photos of the week featuring Epiphany celebrations in Madrid, anti-government protests in Kazakhstan, the Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia, a December wildfire in Colorado, counting penguins at the London Zoo, sunflower art in China, ski jumping in Austria, ice-covered cargo in Vladivostok and more.
  • Kirk Tuck shares some thoughts on Little Cameras. He's been financing his growing Leica collection with the money he's saved not buying wine in restaurants. He might have invested the savings but, "How are you supposed to make photographs with stocks and bonds?" he asks.
  • Neil van Niekerk lists his Best Photography Purchases of 2021.
  • Apple's Recognize and Avoid Phishing Messages, Phony Support Calls and Other Scams not only describes the threats but it also provides links for reporting them.
  • In My Dinner With Sidney Poitier (gift link), Charles Blow remembers "what a life well lived looked like on a man, how you could grow old with grace and kindness or grow into them and how elegance and sophistication are timeless and eternal." And one memorable lesson over dessert.

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