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's week in photos, 20 photos of the week, campus protests, rain in France, the Baltimore bridge collapse, Pier 24, the Haas-Lilienthal House and a simpler camera.

  • The Associated Press showcases its Week in Pictures: Global curated by AP photo editor Anita Baca in Mexico City.
  • Jim Powell presents The Week Around the World in 20 photos documenting the war in Gaza, U.S. campus protests, missile strikes in Kharkiv and floods in Kenya.
  • Photojournalists at NPR member stations documented Campus Protests around the country this week as they unfolded.
  • Rain has forced Harold Davis to spend the day Photographing Close to 'Home'; with his iPhone in France.
  • Owen Bellwood reports an AI-generated image shows What the Baltimore Bridge Collapse Looked Like. "The model, which can be viewed on right here, was created after someone flew a camera drone over the crash site," he writes. "Footage from that flight was then fed into a plotting tool, which translates the video footage into a 3D model of the scene."
  • In Pier 24 Remains Vital While 'Turning the Page' in Last Exhibit, Max Blue updates the fate of the world’s largest exhibition space dedicated to photography. "Pier 24 is now mounting its 13th and final exhibition — “Turning the Page,” which runs through the end of the year," he writes.
  • Julie Zigoris reports the Haas-Lilienthal House in San Francisco, an 1886 Victorian, is getting a second lease on life after the S.F. Heritage closed it in November. Barry Schwartz photographed both the exterior and interior.
  • In Why I Yearn for a Simpler Camera, Jason Row writes, "Pretty much from day one, photography can be broken down into five simple elements. Shutter speed, aperture, film speed, metering and focus, that is. That’s all a camera needs to function." But where is "the Nikon FM2 of the digital world," he wonders.

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