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 the World Athletics Championships, Brooks Falls, drag queens, the Tamron 35-150mm, backup camera systems, a Z timeline, 120 photography articles and The Art and Craft of Photography conference.

  • The Associated Press presents images from the World Athletics Championships in Hungary. "At a cost of nearly $700 million, the city's sparkling National Athletics Center, on the left bank of the Danube River, is hosting more than 2,000 athletes from over 200 countries," AP notes of the nine-day track and field event.
  • In Photographing the Brown Bears of Brooks Falls, Jon Anderson writes, "Brooks Falls creates a bottleneck in the river for migrating salmon, which the brown bears have learned is the perfect place to fish." Photographers too.
  • Suzanne Sease features Drag Queens in Boise, ID, the personal project of Zach Anderson. "His coming of age has shaped his visual aesthetic and can be seen through the attention to color, freshness and youthful communication through his imagery. And as a Millennial, telling stories of identity through his art is a priority."
  • The $1,999 Tamron 35-150mm f2-2.8 Di III VXD has been announced in a Nikon Z mount (also available from Adorama). We published the specs in 2021.
  • Kirk Tuck details his Back-Up Camera and Lens to his medium format rig. He's got another for his Leica SL gear. He's always got a backup system, he notes, after two Hasselblad film bodies failed him on location and he had to resort to, well, a third.
  • Thom Hogan graphs camera and lens introductions in The Z Timeline. "We're five years in from the original announcements and now have eight cameras and thirty-seven lenses (the 40mm f2.8 has two versions)," he writes.
  • Dahlia Ambrose collected 120 Epic Links That Will Cement the Fundamentals of Photography in Your Mind. She's helpfully organized the Light Stalking articles in categories.
  • Rocky Nook is sponsoring the online conference The Art and Craft of Photography on Nov. 8 and 9. Ten speakers will host 20 sessions over the two days with 90 days of access to the video recordings. An early bird discount of $199 (regularly $299) is available until Sept. 15 and nets a $50 Rocky Nook gift card.

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