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 last week, Luc Kordas, Pedernales Falls State Park, Anastasia Samoylova, Mitch Epstein and Palouse Falls.

  • The Associated Press has published its Week in Pictures for last week, which includes Israeli strikes on Gaza, the Commonwealth Games, flowing volcanoes in Iceland, flood damage in Kentucky and more.
  • In The Italian, Luc Kordas takes a rangefinder through the peninsula for three months photographing street scenes, fishermen, anglers, lovers and the sea. "I had no plan nor a time limit. I just photographed whatever attracted me as I moved through the country," he says.
  • Kirk Tuck took a Leica SL2 with two lenses through Pedernales Falls State Park in Saturday's heat. "A great opportunity for uncrowded landscape photography," he writes.
  • Picturing the Environment, Clare Samuel interviews Anastasia Samoylova about her project FloodZone, which "explores the steady decay of her adopted-home of Miami, searching for a new photographic language to depict climate change."
  • In Mitch Epstein's America: Funny, Nostalgic -- and a Bit Lonely (gift link), Erica Ackerberg notes Steidl has published an updated edition of the photographer's Recreation, edited by Susan Bell and Ryan Spencer with 34 previously unseen images, creating an expanded portrait of a nation at various forms of leisure.
  • Kevin Raber takes us behind his shot of the Palouse Falls. It's a long exposure made on an iPhone with a Peak Design tripod, and the Ulanzi ST-14 tripod mount and "an app called Reeflex Pro Camera."

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