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 Judy Glickman Lauder, sports photos, electrical tape, Christmas decorations, a new Pentax film camera, Lapland and nuclear fusion.

  • Strike a Pose! presents images from a new book of the personal photography collection of photographer Judy Glickman Lauder that runs the gamut from Imogen Cunningham to Gordon Parks.
  • The Associated Press showcases its best Sports Photos of the year in which "every imaginable emotion" is on display.
  • Kirk Tuck returns to S. Congress Ave. in Austin to shoot Holiday Stuff Galore with his Leica SL and TTArtisan 50mm. It was raining so he "wrapped a small slice of electrical tape around the mating of the lens and camera mounts. Seemed to work fine at resisting moisture."
  • In Christmas in Bokehland, David Weber insists "only CCD sensors produce better Christmas colors" than Fujifilm X cameras with CMOS sensors. A vintage lens helps, too, in creating "attractive bokeh balls" of colorful Christmas decorations, twinkling lights, and reflective ornaments.
  • Pentax started a new project to develop a film camera and in this seven-minute video, Takeo Suzuki aka TKO, the product planning and designer of the project, discusses the new challenge:

  • Dave Williams is Reporting From Lapland after driving 2,000 miles in his van. "For this trip I made contact with a few other brands to let them know what I'm up to and I'll be testing and showcasing some other cameras and lenses," he writes.
  • In Nuclear Fusion, Joe McNally writes, "Science is fascinating. Science is cool. Science is bloody tough to photograph." He recalls a visit to the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore Labs that recently reported producing sustainable and clean energy with less energy than it took to produce it.

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