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 nature, aerial dancing, female photographers, skateboarding and fixed lens cameras.

  • Grace Ebert highlights a few favorites of the 8,000 submissions to the Nature TTL Photography Contest. "Taken around the globe, the winning photos demonstrate both acts of stealth and moments of serendipity," she writes.
  • Speaking of serendipity, Kirk Tuck just happened upon a troupe Aerial Dancing at Seaholm Power Plant. Fortunately the camera he had with him was "a Leica SL2 with a battered by serviceable Canon FDn 50mm f1.8."
  • The Guardian presents images from the New York Museum of Modern Art exhibit of A Century of Female Photographers.
  • Suzanne Sease features Randal Ford's personal project celebrating Skateboarding. "While I haven't skated in many years, I shot this personal project as a chance to jump back into that world," Ford writes. "It brought me right back to those days when I was kid, spending all my time at the skatepark."
  • Jason Little lists Three Reasons You Should Own a Fixed Lens Camera. Hmmm. It appears he's talking about a camera that uses a non-interchangeable single focal length lens (not a zoom). Not just the merits of popping a prime lens on your interchangeable lens camera which, doubtless, you acquired with a zoom lens (perhaps an 18-55mm kit lens). Still, a prime is a prime.

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