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 Ap photos of the week, Jeffrey Henson Scales, Szymon Marciniak and buying local.

  • The Associated Press presents its Photos of the Week curated by AP photo editor Anita Baca. The images range from "a winter traditions parade to ward off evil in Bucharest, Romania, to children studying by candlelight in Harare, Zimbabwe, whose residents are coping with widespread power outages and the world's highest food inflation," she writes.
  • In a Time of Panthers by Michael Henry Adams reviews a new book of that name by New York Times photo editor Jeffrey Henson Scales. The images come from 40 rolls of film shot in the 1960s and discovered in his family home when it was being prepared for sale. "I was around 14, a high-school freshman. My dad was a hobbyist photographer and my mother was a painter. Even before I turned 11, when dad gave me a Leica camera, both patiently instructed me," he says. Fifteen sleeves of negatives were of the Black Panthers.
  • World Cup referee Szymon Marciniak "showed a photo on his phone during a news conference to respond to claims that Lionel Messi's extra-time goal should not have stood," Reuters reports in World Cup Final Referee Responds to French Criticism. "The French didn't mention this photo, where you can see how there are seven Frenchmen on the pitch when MbappeĢ scores a goal," he tweeted.
  • Kirk Tuck went Strolling in the Afternoon and came back with a slide show of downtown shoppers. Not many of them, he notes (although the streets are packed with shoppers around here). "I hope we somehow break the fever of always shopping online and return to the practice of auditioning gear in person and then supporting the local merchants by buying from them instead of an out of state, online seller," he writes.

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