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 Tim Tai, Thein's "natural" vignettes, customer service and the Sony World Photography Awards.

  • Mike Johnston highlights the heroism of University of Missouri student photographer Tim Tai "calmly facing down a mob of demonstrators that is attempting to bully him." Sadly, part of that mob was Melissa Click, an assistant professor of Mass Media in the Communication Department at the university. Who really should have known Tai was within his rights.
  • Min Thein's photo essay Natural Vignettes is, well, simply gorgeous. Although "natural" isn't quite the word we'd use to describe the meticulously composed, almost abstract images.
  • Kirk Tuck has quite an adventure buying a new iPhone from AT&T. He ends up at the Apple store where three things happen (only one of them embarrassing) that will keep you reading to the end.
  • There are still seven weeks left to enter the Sony World Photography Awards contest featuring "$30,000 cash prizes, global exposure and Sony digital imaging equipment."

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
