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 the Portrait of Humanity winners, the Gila Wilderness, Fathers & Sons, film scanning, lens filters, Truth in Photography and a flamingo.

  • The British Journal of Photography has announced its Portrait of Humanity winning images. The Shortlist is also online.
  • In 100 Years of Solitude in the New Mexico Wilderness (gift link), Elaine Glusac visits the Gila Wilderness. John Burcham illustrates the piece with his crisp photographs of the mountainous region.
  • Suzanne Sease features Fathers & Sons, the personal project of Dirk Anschutz. "The different ways you can grow up in this country are astounding but many challenges for fathers and sons and the love between them are still the same," he says.
  • Kirk Tuck shows his setup for Table Top Film Scanning using a camera. "Someone asked me to talk about tips and tricks but the truth is that there are so few secrets to getting good 'scans' that I don't have much to convey," he writes. "I'll just let you know how I've been doing it and maybe you can improve upon my technique if you've found a better way."
  • Zach Sutton provides a Breakdown of Lens Filters showing "the different filters to use in photography and their purpose."
  • Truth in Photography has published its summer edition with three curated themes: Focus, Documentary Arts Fellowship and West Bank Fragments.
  • Kyle Barr reports A Real Photo Took 3rd Place in an AI Image Contest. The image captured by Miles Astray was of a flamingo tucking its head into its breast, making it disappear.

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