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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Olloclip's iPhone accessory lenses, street photography under the tracks, Lightroom's new collaboration features and the Le Mans Classic.

  • Juli Clover goes hands-on with Olloclip's New 4-in-1 Photo Lens for the new iPhones. The wide angle, fisheye plus 10x and 15x macro lenses mount with a plastic holder that fits over an uncovered phone. Sample shots included.
  • In Perfect Timing on the Right Side of the Tracks, Rena Silverman tells how Krisanne Johnson used a Deign Trust fellowship to "to show new possibilities" along 700 miles of elevated highway and rail. "I have a newfound love approach of street photography," she said.
  • Julieanne Kost reveals little-known Collaboration Features and the Lightroom Web Interface that just got a makeover in Lightroom 5.7.
  • The Leica Camera blog interviews Ryoma Kashiwagi: An Artist's View of Le Mans with a 10-image slide show from this year's Le Mans Classics race, all shot with a Leica T and 28mm and 50mm lenses. "I strive to capture sophisticated images that are intelligent and convey certain nobility," he notes. The subdued color and intimacy of the captures won us over.

More to come...
