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 skateboarding, wrestling, two Art lenses, oxalis and Watson chargers.

  • A Photographer Tracks the Rise of Skateboarding highlights the 40-year career of J. Grant Brittain, who is putting together a book of his historic images. His favorite era was the 1980s because "these guys were making up all these tricks and they did it with their friends and pushed each other. It was so private and I think that's what I liked about it."
  • Fighting for a Good Cause presents French/German photojournalist Kamil Zihnioglu's images of a charity wrestling event in Paris. "was very curious about how the Catch wrestling matches play out in real life and I was really excited about shooting freely at an event without any given restrictions, any agency guidelines or time pressure," he says.
  • Thom Hogan reviews the Sigma 135mm f1.8 DG HSM Art lens and the Sigma 135mm f1.8 DG HSM Art lens.
  • It's true. The neighborhood has once again been overrun by Oxalis, which Harold Davis elevates to art (and even chews). Not us. This year we've turned to the weed whacker, soon to be a major motion picture.
  • Watson digital camera chargers can charge two proprietary batteries at a time using $2 adapter plates to accommodate different brands. So one charger for all your cameras. The company also sells batteries. And for less than the brand name chargers and batteries.

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