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 Syria, the Sony A6300, Dan Winters and David Snider.

  • Alan Taylor presents 35 images In Syria: More Than Five Years of War. "The complex and dangerous situation remains nowhere near resolved, with foreign intervention increasing and those caught in the crossfire suffering the most," he writes. The more disturbing of these stunning images are blacked out until you click on them.
  • Thom Hogan reviews the Sony A6300, which he used to cover the National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas recently. "It'll take you some time to customize the settings and controls to your liking -- the defaults are a messy hodgepodge -- but once I had done that the camera started to disappear and I could just concentrate on that big, bright EVF," he writes.
  • In Portrait of a Friendship in the Face of Cancer, Alexandra Schwartz presents 17 images of Brett Kilroe taken by his friend, the photographer Dan Winters. "Winters's pictures, suffused with the tenderness and affection that mark friendship's special love, are a promise not to abandon his friend by turning away," she writes.
  • A Photographer's Homage to His Blind Parents is a video slide show narrated by photographer David Snider, who assembled images of his parents' lives, including his own photo essay on them, to show how the blind live normal lives.
