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 pictures, Lucia Buricelli, cartes de visite, irises, a Mirrorless/iPhone workflow, Ripley and the Fujifilm GFX 50S II.

  • The Associated Press showcases its Week in Pictures: Global curated by AP photo editor Subramoney Iyer in New Delhi.
  • Italian photographer Lucia Buricelli photographed Scenes From a Historic Verdict (gift link) outside the criminal courthouse in downtown Manhattan and lived to tell about it. "I made several visits to the courthouse over the past two weeks and for such a divisive and historic trial, I was surprised by how calm the mood was," she writes.
  • Kathryn Bromwich presents images of Cartes De Visite collected by Scottish author Paul Frecker and now published in a new book titled Cartomania. It really was a fervor: crowds often formed to ogle displays in stockists' windows, to the extent that pavements were blocked and traffic was impeded," he writes.
  • "Mostly the Irises in my garden have already bloomed for the year. But this one is an exception! And exceptional!," writes Harold Davis. It really does look like an illustration and not a photograph.
  • In How to Create a Rock-Solid Workflow With an iPhone and Mirrorless Camera, Derrick Story marries his Nikon Z f, iPhone 15 Pro Max and Kingston card reader with USB-C adapter. "This process is fast. And the best part is, it works every time," he writes. But you need an iPhone with a USB-C port.
  • Mike Johnston considers Robert Elswit's B&W Cinematography for Ripley. "Once I got over my prejudices, I found nothing but enjoyment in the visuals," he writes.
  • Why Do I Sometimes Feel Like the Fujifilm GFX 50S II Isn't Ready for Prime Time? Kirk Tuck wonders. A temperature warning over 94.5$deg; and battery life are two reasons, he points out.

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