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 Northern Lights, shooting the aurora borealis, Ap's week in pictures, Rio, 1979 and photographers who use old gear.

  • In Northern Lights Illuminate Skies, Jim Powell presents images of aurora borealis sightings all over Europe. Geoff Brumfiel adds a few more photos of The Northern Lights that are a result of a rare solar storm.
  • Claire Moses suggests How to Observe the Northern Lights This Weekend (gift link) with some camera tips. "The sensor on the camera is more sensitive to the wavelengths produced by the aurora and may produce an image you can’t see with the naked eye," she writes. So take a shot with your smartphone even if you don't see anything.
  • The Associated Press showcases its Week in Pictures: Global curated by AP photo editor Subramoney Iyer in New Delhi.
  • Rio, Beauty and Chaos is São Paulo-based photographer Adrian Brodbeck's best phone picture, shot on iPhone 12 Pro Max. "Rio is a beautiful, democratic and welcoming place to go. It has this spell," he tells Grace Holliday.
  • Kirk Tuck remembers living upstairs in a two story duplex Back in 1979, working at the Kerbey Lane Café and shooting portraits with a YahsicaMat 124G on Panatomix X to start his career as a photographer.
  • A Reddit poster asks, Who Is Your Favorite Living Photographer Who Uses the Oldest, Uncool Gear?

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