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 Hurricane Matthew, the Women's Reserve Camouflage Corps, people in panda suits and collapsible reflector kits.

  • Alan Taylor presents 34 images of The Wreckage Left Behind by Hurricane Matthew. "One week after the powerful storm first made landfall in southwestern Haiti, some communities still have not received any assistance, as authorities there reported at least 900 deaths due to the hurricane," he writes. "Another 33 people in the United States lost their lives as Matthew crashed ashore."
  • In Why Women Pretended to Be Creepy Rocks and Trees in NYC Parks During WWI, Lauren Young presents a trove of images from the National Archives and Records Administration of the Women's Reserve Camouflage Corps. "They used their creativity and crafting skills to develop designs and patterns that mimicked the landscape to provide soldiers with added protection," she explains.
  • In National Geographic Magazine: Ami Vitale, Heidi Volpe interviews Vitale about "shooting people in panda suits raising captive babies at the Wolong center of the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda." Despite having the scent the suits with urine, Vitale admits, "I died of cuteness overload many times over."
  • In Getting The Most Of 5-in-1 Collapsible Reflector Kits, Emma Grigoryan explains how she uses the gold, silver, black and white surfaces zipped around the white scrim frame of her collapsible reflector.

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