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 Panigiria, Amira Karaoud, street photography, Adger Cowans, Pixelmator, Skylum and Haida M10 II filters.

  • Thanassis Stavrakis documents the Greek Panigiria festivals surrounding the Aug. 15 feast of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary. "Monday's celebration of the Dormition was the first in three years without the restrictions imposed by the lockdowns of the coronavirus pandemic and people turned out in droves," he writes.
  • Suzanne Sease features Amira Karaoud's portraits of Arab Women Living in the U.S.. "By highlighting these women's diverse beliefs, up-bringing and experiences, this project strives to illuminate the unique color and nuance of these Arab Women, adding color to the precious necklace of an empire," she writes.
  • LensCulture has announced the winners, jurors’ picks and finalists of its Street Photography Awards. That marquee image by Jake Ricker is from the first place series taken on the Golden Gate Bridge (severely in need of some paint).
  • In Black Photographers Represent Their World, Adger Cowans and Virginia Museum of Fine Arts curator Sarah Eckhardt discuss Kamoinge Workshop's history and future as well as the exhibition Working Together on view at the Getty Center through Oct. 9.
  • The Pixelmator team explains Why Pixelmator Photo Is Switching to Subscription Pricing for $4.99 per month or $23.99 per year. They'd like to have a reliable income stream.
  • Thom Hogan praises Pixelmator but castigates Skylum for their software pricing. "Skylum isn't the only one thrashing their customers; we're going to have more of this from at least two other major providers in the coming months," he writes ominously.
  • Chris Gampat reviews the expensive but versatile Haida M10 II Filter System, which he calls "an incredible way of doing a whole lot of things at once with a lens and a camera."

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