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 Astronomy Photographer of the Year, Svalbard, happiness, Diane Arbus and Figma.

  • Matt Fidler presents the winners of the Royal Observatory Greenwich's 14th Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest.
  • The Svalbard Adventure Begins for Kevin Raber and a few workshop attendees. "Svalbard is a group of several islands in the polar circle and is a part of Norway," he writes. "It offers incredible photography opportunities. The landscape is dynamic and always changing. The light is so different. I call it arctic yellow."
  • Kirk Tuck finds himself Regressing to Happiness as time goes by. "Now I'm coming to see the cameras as quiet companions. Welcome adjuncts to being outside and immersed in current culture. Almost like friends," he writes.
  • David Zwirner and Fraenkel Gallery have organized Cataclysm: The 1972 Diane Arbus Retrospective Revisited, on view at Zwirner's gallery in New York to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the artist's 1972 posthumous retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art.
  • In We're Thrilled to Announce Adobe's Intent to Acquire Figma, David Wadhwani, Adobe president of Digital Media Business writes, "Together, our teams bring together amazing expertise in core creative technology and a platform for web-based, collaborative applications." Figma is a Web platform for creatives working collaboratively.

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