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 Jonathan Jasberg, Bay to Breakers, Margaret Renkl, blooms at home, debugging Internet wisdom, Groundzeroart, Holger Mischke's chat, posting photos of kids, a free safari webinar and airline damage.

  • Visual Diary of a Nomad displays a few of the images Jonathan Jasberg has captured as he visits over 65 countries to illustrate "the fleetingness of time and of daily life in different worlds."
  • Manuel Orbegozo caught the "action" at yesterday's Bay to Breakers. "From morning and well into the afternoon, it was prime time for people-watching," writes George Kelly.
  • In The Northern Lights I Did Not See (gift link), Margaret Renkl writes about using her phone to "see what I could not: a starry field of streaky purple right above my neighbor’s house." The piece includes a few phone captures of the phenomenon by others.
  • Harold Davis returns home to find his Garden in Bloom. "Until one travels, one never knows how much one misses home, has taken home for granted, longs for it and how grand is the return to the garden in full bloom," he writes.
  • Thom Hogan bats back a few more half-baked thoughts in Strange Things Written on the Internet XXX.
  • After buying a sportier car than his utilitarian SUV, Kirk Tuck has launched a new blog titled Groundzeroart. The difference from his current blog?"More personal. More oriented towards imaging and art. Not just photography but across media," he writes.
  • Kevin Raber has posted his Photo Chat with Holger Mischke on black-and-white photography. "Holger's BW work is stunning and his use of cameras will surprise you," he writes.
  • Andrew Limbong explains Why You Should Think Twice Before Posting That Cute Photo of Your Kid Online in an interview with Leah Plunkett, a faculty member at Harvard Law School who specializes in children, family law and technology. In 2019 Plunkett authored Sharenthood: Why We Should Think Before We Talk About Our Kids Online.
  • Thom Hogan and Mark Comon will host a free Safari in Botswana webinar on June 6 at 5 p.m. "Both safari instructors will show you images, talk about lessons learned/relearned and discuss the basics of technique while photographing on safari," Hogan writes. Registration required.
  • A Reddit poster laments United Airlines Destroyed My Camera Gear. "I brought the bag in with me as carry on and they forced checked it in due not having enough space in the cabin," they write. Comments detail ways to avoid that, which include mentioning the bag packs lithium-ion batteries, which (according to FAA policy) cannot be checked.

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