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 Apollo 8, fog waves, the middle of nowhere, Lu Guang, your Christmas Story and Taylor Swift.

  • It's been 50 Years Since Apollo 8 Showed Us 'Earthrise'. Alan Taylor presents 31 images from the flight that "orbited the moon 10 times and came within 70 miles of the surface, taking dozens of photographs."
  • Nick Steinberg talks about capturing Fog Waves in San Francisco. He discovered "when the fog rolls through and is at the perfect height and density, it will create wave-like movements as it contours the land." A neutral density filter and long exposure were key.
  • Michael Novotny shows A Different Side of Iceland. The Czech photographer lives in the remote southeast of Iceland, which he refers to as "the middle of nowhere."
  • Diane Smyth reports Chinese Photographer Lu Guang Officially Arrested. He's been missing since November but this week his wife said the police called his family to confirm he was arrested in Kashgar. No reason for the arrest was given.
  • In How to Photograph Your Christmas Story, Dahlia Ambrose provides something of a shot list for the holiday.
  • Carolyn Wright asks Were Pics Taken of Fans at Concert Illegal?. Fans "who watched rehearsal videos at a kiosk during Taylor Swift's recent concert were photographed without their knowledge," she writes. But it was entirely legal.

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