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. This time we look at suburban geometry, photographing architecture, the Panasonic/Leica 8-18mm lens and ParallelDots.

  • Ming Thein has published the first part of his Suburban Geometry photo essay. "Chasing uniqueness in the photography of urban exploration has become a challenge," he writes, "not so much to find unusual locations so much as a race against the shadows for the flaneur -- perhaps, much as it should be."
  • In The Art of Photographing Architecture With Chris Edwards, Marissa Clifford asks Edwards about the difference between photographing people and buildings.
  • Kirk Tuck explains why he likes the Panasonic/Leica 8-18mm lens. "I used the Panasonic/Leica 8-18mm for one afternoon and then called the camera store and gave them my credit card info on the phone," he writes. "The results I got, both on stills and with a variable ND filter in video were uniformly great."
  • ParallelDots has unveiled a Virality Detection API which predicts the popularity of photos based on similar, trending photos on social media. "This API has been built by training a deep neural network on a large dataset of 500,000 photos consisting of both popular and unpopular photos crawled from different social platforms," said Ankit Singh, co-founder and CTO of ParallelDots.s
