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 Swifties, a red hat, Downtown First Thursdays, those 25 photos again, LensRentals, Rad Drew and Bill Anders.

  • Murdo MacLeod presents images of the Swifties gathering at Murrayfield stadium in Edinburgh for the first of Taylor Swift's three Scottish dates on her Eras tour.
  • AP photographer and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Emilio Morenatti describes his photograph of A Red Hat during the recent South African elections. "I believe that beauty can be found in the most mundane moments and my work is dedicated to uncovering those hidden gems," he writes. "Ultimately, my goal is to create images that not only catch the eye but also linger in the mind, provoking thought and sparking curiosity."
  • There's more than one way to revitalize a downtown. Morgan Ellis photographs some of the 20,000 people showing up in downtown San Francisco for Downtown First Thursdays. "Judging by the long food and drink lines, several packed stages blasting live music and the overall buzz from attendees and business owners alike, the festival's momentum -- at least in this case -- is only building," writes Jillian D'Onfro.
  • In More About Those 25 Photos, Mike Johnson makes a few more observations about the headline and the choices upon reflection.
  • And with the arrival a Leica D-Lux 7 from LensRentals, Johnston has a few thoughts about renting gear to treat yourself once in a while.
  • Kevin Raber has posted the one-and-half hour Photo Chats Video With Rad Drew on using the iPhone for photography. "He covered settings, apps and techniques, just to name a few," Raber writes.
  • Russell Lewis remembers NASA astronaut Bill Anders, who took famous photo of Earth during Apollo. Anders died Friday in a plane crash in Washington state. He was 90.

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