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 Nature Photographer of the Year, the Northern Lights, female photographers at Photo London, street photography, Ask Photos, iOS restoring deleted photos and McNally remembering his mother.

  • Dieter Damschen is the GDT Nature Photographer of the Year 2024, leading the winners in eight other categories of the German Society for Nature Photography's annual contest.
  • Associated Press photographer Robert Bukaty's shot of the Northern Lights was A Family Affair. "My photo of the Northern Lights in the sky over a farmhouse in Brunswick, Maine, came about less because of my role as a photojournalist and more because of my role as a father," he writes.
  • Sarah Gilbert continues The Guardian's peeks at Photo London in Gold, Garages and Gardens, a survey of the female photographers exhibiting.
  • Brandon Ballweg is Exploring Life Through a Lens with his street photography. "By honing your observation skills, you appreciate the world around you a lot more. I think we all take for granted the beauty around us," he writes.
  • Conversational Search Is Coming to Google Photos "warns" John Nack. People don't search for photos, they scroll through them, he notes. With Ask Photos, they can just ask for them. "Will anyone actually do this?" he wonders. "It's really hard for me to imagine."
  • Wes Davis reports "The Latest iOS Update Is Resurfacing Deleted Nudes and other deleted photos (but, hey, you know it's all about the clicks, so it's "nudes"). "There's a chance it's not specific to photos, either, as one person posted on X that they saw old voicemails come back after the update," he writes.
  • In Moms, Memories, and Pictures, Joe McNally remembers a difficult relationship with affection. And two photographs he's glad he took.

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