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 chrysalises, test pictures, collecting vernacular photography, five fundamentals and photography backups.

  • Grace Ebert features the Chrysalises of Butterfly Pupae photographed by Levon Biss. "Otherworldly and bordering on the bizarre, many of the chrysalises have evolved to be deceptive in appearance, acting as necessary camouflage from potential predators by impersonating nearby plants and surroundings," she writes.
  • Mike Johnston has been battling server issues with Typepad by posting Test Pictures. Here's a couple more, one of which is apparently good enough to eat.
  • Thomas Hawk has been Collecting Vernacular Photography. Along with some examples, he presents something of a primer on the hobby, including where to find images, how to scan them, where to publish them and how to archive them.
  • Jacob Maentz lists Five Fundamental Elements of Photography. Go ahead, guess.... His list is a bit idiosyncratic to us. Light, Color, Moment, Composition, Distance. But at the end he suggests analyzing some of your favorite images along those lines, which might be rewarding.
  • Andrew Darlow discusses How to Manage Your Photography Backups the Right Way with Andrew Hellmich in this 48:11 interview.

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