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 an interactive photo essay format, Mary Russel, shooting for transparency and mobile device charging.

  • Walking in War's Path uses the New York Time's new interactive photo essay format that simulates walking through the scene to a captured image.
  • For a more traditional photo essay, the Times has published a rare look at the work of Mary Russell, a 1960s and 1970s fashion reporter and photographer based in Paris whose subjects were her well-heeled friends. Like Rudolf Nureyev, Jane Fonda, Grace Jones, the Velvet Underground and the Rolling Stones.
  • In the field for transparency shows how Harold Davis uses his transparency technique (both capture and post) in the field where no light box dare go. Sunflower is a "shot of translucent sunflower petals, with the early morning sun coming from behind."
  • Terry White describes Four Ways to Keep Your Mobile Devices Charged on the Go and he uses all four: an external battery, a beefier external battery, a plug-in multiport charger and a solar charger.

More to come...
