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 sports, Photo London, Yan Sun, County Kerry, diffraction, third party lenses, photobooks and Retrospective camera bag discounts.

  • The Associated Press presents its Weekly Sports Photo Gallerycurated by Associated Press photographer Charlie Arbogast.
  • In See Things Differently, Mee-Lai Stone showcases the best of Photo London. The event brings together images from 44 cities across four continents, showcasing important works from the dawn of the medium to today.
  • Magali Duzant reviews Mountains and Rivers, Yan Sun's Chinese landscapes that evoke traditional painting. "The photographs do not jump out at the viewer," she writes. "Rather they slowly envelop, like a mountain fog reaching beyond the picture's borders, pulling us out of time and into the image."
  • Harold Davis suggests County Kerry has something in common with Berkeley, Calif. "One thing in common is infinitely changeable weather," he writes. With a dramatic photo to illustrate his point.
  • In The Silent Killer of Your Photos' Sharpness, Jason Row tackles the subject of diffraction.
  • In Third Party Lens Extravaganza, Derrick Story lists his current favorites "for this swell of great optics for mirrorless cameras." Tamron, TTArtisan, 7Artisans, Viltrox and Sigma lenses make the grade.
  • In The Photobook Hypothesis, Mike Johnston writes, "Given shelving of any capacity, whether a yard or a mile, photobooks fill 110 percent of that space."
  • Think Tank Photo is taking 15 percent off its Retrospective Travel Series of camera bags through May 28.

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