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 Martin Buday, International Landscape Photographer of the Year, the Vietnam War, Jill Bliss, Brinson+Banks, color, street photography, the Small Rig tool and an NFT.

  • Enjoy the Silence: Quiet America features images "of abandoned expanses, vacant gas stations and giant concrete elephants" by Martin Buday from his new book Prophetic Kingdom.
  • The 2021 International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards have been announced with a preliminary flip-book version of the 2021 awards book.
  • Long Time No See features Andrea Orejarena and Caleb Stein's extensive art project that explores the history of the Vietnam War and "pushes the boundaries of photography to a new level."
  • In Sprawling, Color-Coded Arrangements Expose the Intricate Underbellies of Mushrooms, Grace Ebert spotlights the images of Jill Bliss. Her arrangements of upside-down mushrooms from a small island in the San Juan archipelago of the Salish Sea are enhanced with "lavender, taupe and bright orange."
  • Suzanne Sease features Sun City, the personal project of Brinson+Banks who returned to the Arizona community "to see how life had picked back up once residents were vaccinated and the more than 100 clubs had opened back up."
  • In Earthly Delights, Harold Davis considers the power of monochrome and the allure of color.
  • In Learning to Do Street Photography, Russ Lewis looks at "some of the things that are supremely important if you're setting out to do street photography."
  • Kevin Raber likes his $21 Small Rig Tool for when he needs "to tighten a tripod place or adjust the tension on a tripod."
  • In Oh No! Not the Negatives!, Andrew Molitor takes on yet another NFT offering. "They packaged the NFTs with a print and the original glass plate negative in appealing frames and included a small brass hammer and invited the buyer to 'make the object permanently digital' by smashing the glass plate."

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