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 Roe protests, prizing-winning portraits, Cordes-sur-Ciel, dogs, cameras, vintage lenses and a repair.

  • In The Fight for Roe, Alan Taylor presents 25 photos of "the immediate protests" sparked by the leak of a draft majority opinion by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.
  • The Guardian presents the Prize-Winning Portraits of LensCulture's portrait awards. There are some unforgettable images here.
  • "Thanks to methodical planning, good luck with the weather and helpful guides my photography group was able to photograph the ancient town of Cordes-sur-Ciel from across the valley at sunset," Harold Davis writes. He digs up a similar shot he made at dawn "many years ago" to compare. No new skyscrapers.
  • Suzanne Sease features Healer: Experience the Healing Power of Dogs, the personal project of Grace Chon. "These photographs create a pathway for people to quiet their minds and breathe while simultaneously receiving the penetrating, soothing and unconditional love of a dog," Chon writes.
  • In Best Camera for You? you can see how the other half lives. The people, that is, who don't have to choose which camera to buy because they can afford all of them. Their conundrum is which camera to use. Life is so unforgiving.
  • OTOH, Seven Vintage Lenses for Capturing Dream-Like Portraits lists a few affordable flea market finds that have proven to get the job done admirably.
  • And OTOOH, Shoutout to Canon CPS tells the story of a Canon 24-205mm zoom repair that went well. One commenter suggests looking into the repair tiers to see if any of the options work out to no additional cost for the repair.

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