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 the 2017 Silk Way Rally, a street photography workflow, the Magnum Photography Awards 2017, Joe McNally's portraits on the prairie, Callie Mills and Photoshop automation.

  • Alan Taylor presents 28 of AFP photographer Franck Fife's photos in Scenes From the 2017 Silk Way Rally. In the ninth running of the race over 90 rally racers from 35 countries drove 5,965 miles over two weeks in 14 legs from Moscow, Russia, through Kazakhstan to Xi'an in China. With a few mishaps.
  • Robin Wong continues his series on street photography with an amusing Street Photography Workflow. It includes nodes like "Does the subject Meow?"
  • LensCulture presents the winners, finalists and jurors' picks of the Magnum Photography Awards 2017. "These photographers -- who come from 24 countries on 5 continents -- present us with a remarkable array of subject matter, stylistic approaches and personal visions."
  • In Lights on the Prairie!, Joe McNally shoots portraits of John Wayne Haynes and Billy Manns with two soft boxes.
  • Fearless Naturalism highlights the Los Angeles photo series by Callie Mills that focuses on the mundane (and vintage vehicles). "The ability to see beauty in the seemingly mundane is what sets Callie Mills' photography apart from the glut of digital images all over the Internet." That's a Studebaker Avanti under the palms, by the way. And a gold Citroën (no chassis needed) with its famous hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension system.
  • Julieanne Kost has posted Photoshop Automation: Tips, Tricks and Techniques at The two-and-a-half hour course includes tips for working with actions, using the Batch command, scripting and more.

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