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 Mehmet Aslan, Juuso Westerlund, Glyn Dewis and Sage Akaboshi.

  • In A Viral Photo Helps Bring Syrian Refugee Family to Italy (gift link), Gaia Pianigiani tells how an image by Turkish photographer Mehmet Aslan became the photo of the year at the Siena awards last year and inspired a fund-raising drive to get treatment for the father who had lost a leg and his son, born without limbs.
  • In Everyday Moments and Their Special Magic, Grace Holliday showcases Finnish photographer Juuso Westerlund's best phone picture. His youngest son, Antero, had climbed up on the toilet seat to pose in the bathroom mirror.
  • In this 13:34 Crop Your Images Bigger video, Glyn Dewis shows three advanced ways of filling a square crop's empty spaces using Photoshop's Content Aware and Merge to Panorama tools:
  • Japanese photographer Sage Akaboshi has been shooting street photography in San Francisco for eight years. In addition to showing a few favorites, the article links to an SFGate feature and a PetaPixel which both ran earlier this month. Not to mention his Instagram account.

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