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 photos of the week, writing an artist statement, a '90s look, Vallerret photography gloves and AWS Glacier Deep Archive.

  • Alan Taylor presents 35 Photos of the Week that include the aftermath of Cyclone Batsirai in Madagascar, snowboarding at the Beijing Winter Olympics, a partially-submerged church in Spain, a mudslide in Colombia, an eruption of Mount Etna in Italy, a performance at the the Brit Awards in London, a camel market in Sudan, skateboarding in Los Angeles, among others. How strange it is to see a construction crane hovering over Notre Dame in Paris.
  • In How to Write an Artist Statement, Glenn Guy covers the territory so you can map your own "creative journey."
  • In Get a Cool '90s Photo Look in Seconds, Digital Photo relays Adobe's tips for getting that one-hour photo look with presets or manual manipulations.
  • Laurence Norah reviews Vallerret Photography Gloves, a product of Norway. The FlipTech finger caps with magnets for index finger and thumb are ingenious.
  • A Reddit poster asks Does Anyone Use AWS Glacier Deep Archive for Raw Storage? and gets some interesting answers that include some lighter-weight alternatives.

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