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 U.S. Open, 9/11, AP's week in pictures, Mongolian nomads, free portraiture, trick photography, camera market numbers and talking to new photographers.

  • Steven Bloor presents images from this year's U.S. Open, which concluded with Coco Gauff's first major title and Novak Djokovic's 24th.
  • In Photographers Who Shot 9/11 Share Moving Stories, six photographers briefly reflect on the day. They include Matthew McDermott, David Handschuh, Ira Block, Michel Leroy, David Forrest and Steve Simon.
  • The Associated Press collects its photographs of the Week in Pictures from last week. The selection was curated by AP Photo Editor Tomas Stargardter in Mexico City.
  • Sven Zellner photographs the daily lives of Mongolian Nomads in the South Gobi Desert. "Because of their lifestyle, nomads are extremely dependent on the climate -- even small changes can lead to catastrophes that force them to give up their way of life," he says.
  • In September Resolution: Portrait Photography, Mike Johnston considers offering free portraits. Interesting reader comments follow.
  • Dahlia Ambrose proposes some Trick Photography to Wow Your Friends. "Who doesn't love some mind-blowing artistic images that can make the viewers go 'Wow?'" she writes.
  • In Numbers Mean Everything/Nothing, Thom Hogan examines a recent graphic from a Nikkei article about the global camera market.
  • Chris Gampat finds it A Struggle to Talk to New Photographers. They're all about flip-though content creation and not chew-it-over art, he argues.

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