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 Kyiv in the dark, whale watching, monitors for photographers and Outdoor Photographer's new editor-in-chief.

  • Alan Taylor presents 18 dramatic photos of life in Ukraine after Missile Strikes Leave Kyiv in the Dark. "In the capital city of Kyiv, residents are trying to continue their normal lives, wearing headlamps at night, lighting candles and running generators where necessary," he writes. :Utility workers are trying to repair and replace what they can before winter sets in -- while still under threat of further attacks."
  • I Am Not a Nature Photographer, Scott Kelby protests. But he went whale watching Monday morning at the B&H Photo OpticWest Conference. "We had lots of shooting opportunities and even some 'Friendlies' -- whales that would come right up alongside the boat while our engines were off -- they were literally six feet away," he writes. The experience left an impression.
  • In NEC, We Hardly Knew Ye, Mike Johnston surveys the current market for monitors. He cites models from Apple, BenQ, Dell and Eizo. "To me, if you're a color photographer, you need a monitor that supports the color space you typically work in," he writes.
  • Dan Havlik is moving to Outdoor Photographer magazine as editor-in-chief next week. "Honored and excited to lead this storied and beloved photography magazine and Web site!" he tweets.

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