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 Northern gannets, architectural photo finalists, Roland Kilimanjaro, Banksy, the Voigtlander 40mm, proof prints and Aperture Priority mode.

  • Calvin Woodward, Carolyn Kaster and Lynn Berry feature images of Northern Gannets packing together on a Bonaventure Island plateau before heading south for the winter.
  • CNN presents a slide show of The Year's Most Remarkable Architectural Photos from the 20 finalists of the Architectural Photography Awards 2022. Categories include interiors, exteriors and buildings in use.
  • Polish photographer Roland Kilimanjaro's portrait project Souls mirrors his own. "We can think alike or we can be completely different from each other, but we all share a common denominator and when I meet other people, I'm able to find myself in them as well," he says.
  • In New Banksy Works Emerge Among the Destruction in Ukraine, Grace Ebert presents unattributed photographs of the artist's guerrilla battle against the Russian invasion. "Perhaps the most pointed piece is that of a young boy slamming Russian President Vladimir Putin to the ground during a judo match," she writes.
  • Kirk Tuck evaluates his decision to take just his Voigtlander 40mm f1.4 Lens on vacation. "It was just the right package for casual shooting on vacation," he writes. "The only thing I would want to change would be an assurance that the lens was water resistant."
  • In The Proof Prints Arrived, Mike Johnston gets a peek at Ctein's first prints of his Sigma black-and-white images. "The prints are beautiful. I like them better than I thought I would," he writes.
  • Karlo de Leon explains Why Aperture Priority Is the Most Preferred Shooting Mode.

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