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 a rare blue rock-thrush, David Hurn, bubblegum, Dano Steinhardt, a car kettle and books of collections.

  • Maanvi Singh reports Photographer Accidentally Snaps Rare Bird in Oregon. "Michael Sanchez was setting up his new camera to capture a waterfall at Oregon's Hug Point at sunrise when he spotted a little bird hopping around," he writes. It turns to have been a rare blue rock-thrush.
  • First Class Posts features a few of Magnum photographer David Hurn's Instagram posts collected in David Hurn: On Instagram. His feed, which he started in 2016 to share photographic advice, combines old images with modern reflections.
  • Grace Ebert features the Playful Bubblegum Photos of Suzanne Saroff. "Conjuring memories of childhood competitions and absent-minded chomping, the photos zoom in on chewed wads of pink, blue and green that appear almost corporeal, their pudgy folds and pockets evoking the beauty and repulsion of the human body," she writes.
  • Kevin Raber has posted his Photo Chats Recording With Dan (Dano) Steinhardt from April 24. "Dano works for Epson for his day job and when he has a break between meetings, he is out and about with his camera," he writes. "He takes off his Epson hat and puts on his photographer hat as he shares images that he has made from around the world."
  • Derrick Story gets Hot Coffee, Soup, on the Road With This 12V Car Kettle. Well, next time you're wondering what to get for the road warrior photographer in your life (or long distance commuter), you may thank him for the review, which includes his experience warming up cups of coffee.
  • In Passing the Polygraph -- Books of Collections, Francis Hodgson writes, "Photography books have boomed." He quickly adds, "There are too many of them to keep up and the median levels of quality or intrigue or even beauty seem not always to be high." But there's a class of books that intrigues him: books that collect images from more than one photographer. "They allow pictures to crash or nestle together in ways which are telling," he notes. Food for thought.

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