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 weekend Supreme Court protests, Sibylle Bergemann, Namib cages, clematis, Brian Worley, lens hoods and the Capture One for iPad live stream.

  • Alan Taylor presents 30 photos of the weekend Protests Against the Overturning of Roe in Houston, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Denver, Raleigh, St. Louis, Portland, New York, Nashville and other locations. "Thousands of people marched in streets and gathered in squares to voice their anger and urge lawmakers to take actions to support a woman's freedom of choice," he writes. A few of the images go beyond photojournalism to visual poetry.
  • Devid Gualandris reoports the Berlinische Galerie in Berlin is presenting the first posthumous museum retrospective of German photographer Sibylle Bergemann, who died in 2010. With a selection of over 200 photographs, the exhibition Town and Country and Dogs, Photographs 1966-2010 runs until Oct. 10.
  • Caged is Margaret Courtney-Clarke's long-term project documenting the use of make-shift cages to constrain and protect property in the harsh Namib desert. "Poultry are protected from predators, but other less likely candidates are also restrained: a puppy, two cats in a cage atop a pink tin bath, a dog and a donkey locked into parallel planes -- both incarcerated in their roles as beasts of burden -- one for humans, the other for its litter," she writes.
  • In Clematis in Love, Harold Davis arranges the flowers vertically on his light table. "Actually, this is one of those somewhat unusual images that works in either orientation," he writes.
  • Scott Kelby hands off to Brian Worley to explain what Image Stabilization doesn't do. It can't stop moving subjects.
  • In Random Rant #87, Thom Hogan complains about Nikon lens hoods. "It's not like there's rocket science involved here," he writes. "I have to think that if the folk designing and engineering camera products were actually using them, they wouldn't tolerate these simple and clear failures."
  • Capture One has announced it live stream introduction to Capture One for iPad will take place tomorrow from 10 to 11:30 a.m. PDT.

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