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 Andrew Savulich's Times Square, Anand Varma's bees, Lily the drone and Brian Skerry's underwater photojournalism.

  • In Odd, Old Days in Times Square, James Estrin gives us 11 images taken in the last century (ahem) by Andrew Savulich. Steidl is publishing a collection of Savulich's work, "a unique mix of spot news and street photography, capturing crime scenes as well as everyday life," in The City.
  • Melody Rowell shows how Anand Varma shot his honeybee series for National Geographic. Varma turned a shed in his backyard into a living lab with a hive from Alice Rosenthal, a local beekeeper.
  • We had a nice chat the other night with Hans Hartman about drones. The trend, he said, is auto-piloting rather than, well, crashing the thing. And among the auto-piloting drones, Lily is making quite a waterproof splash. "No setup required. Just throw Lily in the air to start a new video."
  • Nikon's Learn & Explore page features underwater photojournalist Brian Skerry, who uses three D4 cameras encased in Subal underwater housings and Hartenberger flash units to get his shots.

More to come...
