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 Preston Gannaway, Casey Sims, Pier Luigi Dodi, the good news and avoiding regrets.

  • In I Spent 17 Years Photographing One Family's Grief and Growth (gift link), Preston Gannaway writes about documenting a family as it suffers the loss of their mother, a process that "taught me nearly everything I know about intimacy and storytelling, living and dying," she writes.
  • In How the Race Was Won, Jason Kottle features a composite photograph taken by Casey Sims of the semi-finals of the men's 110-meter hurdles at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest last month. That would be 11 shots.
  • Grace Holliday talks to Pier Luigi Dodi about his 2020 photograph of Two Happy Cows. "I always think of my photos in either colour or black and white before I take them," he says. "I knew this would be the latter. When your eye, heart and brain are aligned, that's when you take a photo. That's what happened here."
  • In The Antidote, Mike Johnston follows up his "glum article from last week" with the brighter side of the street. Includes the revelation that he once passed up a job with The Washington Post.
  • In Continuing to Move Forward, Kirk Tuck looks back at a few turning points in his life. "Life will always throw curve balls at all of us but we have the option, the choice, to be satisfied with the way we've acted and reacted and how we used the power to experience the tough stuff without letting it cover us with a blanket of regret," he writes.

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