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 photojournalists on their stories, Vietnamese women, a Wes Anderson moment, dogwood and down time.

  • In Behind the Lens, Associated Press photographers talk about their 2022 assignments, sharing show they approached the stories. Illustrating a story that happened long ago, shooting with a panoramic camera, capturing nuances, dealing with a twist in the plot. There are more in a second piece published today.
  • In An Ode to Vietnam and Its Women, Vietnamese photographer Chiron Duong shares images from his latest series Portraits of Áo Dài: Hope for Peace and Love. "I always apply the landscape architect's way of thinking to finding the subject and implementing a photography idea. Both endeavors require keen observation, contemplation and judgment," he says.
  • Joe Macdonald captures A Wes Anderson Moment with his phone that he would have missed if he'd tried to pull out his Sony A7 to get the shot. Interesting decision about the horizon. He levels the interior of the boat and leaves the horizon askew, which is how you might orient yourself onboard.
  • In When Does a Photo Become a Work of Art? nature and landscape photographer William Neill answers with an image of Dogwood tapestry and a quote from Ansel Adams.
  • Kirk Tuck finds himself saddled with some Down Time. "This is a perennial void/gap/malaise that happens each year as we reach the end and everything slows down," he writes.

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