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 migrants in Reus, Venezuelan protests, Flickr Explore, a manifesto, the Olympus M1x and Apple's iPhone contest.

  • In African Migrants Treated as Royalty in Three Kings Celebration in Spain, Evelyn Nieves reports on the unusual welcome the migrants received in Reus. "At a time when 'illegal immigration' has become a political buzz saw -- when the United States president is demanding $5.7 billion for a border wall and European states have agreed to reject migrants -- Reus has replaced hostility with humanity." she writes. With photos by Olmo Calvo and Edu Bayer.
  • In A Venezuelan Opposition Leader Declares Himself 'Interim President', Alan Taylor presents 29 photos of this week's crisis. "Protests flared up in Venezuela and other countries, among a widespread Venezuelan diaspora, calling for [President] Maduro to step down, with some demonstrations in Caracas ending in violence," he writes.
  • In Hitting the Flickr Explore Jackpot With Crepuscular Coast, Harold Davis compares Instagram with Flickr for capturing "eyeballs today for photograph." And then wonders how an image gets into Flickr Explore.
  • Andrew Molitor's Manifesto is "an attempt to launch something like a school" of photography, he writes. In five statements he describes his "opening bid for a philosophical underpinning of something."
  • Kirk Tuck shares My Thoughts on the Olympus Camera Announcement. He thinks the M1x will appeal to videographers who shy away from $5,000 Stedi-Cams.
  • In Share Your Best Photos Shot on iPhone, Apple has revised the terms of its contest which seeks exclusive commercial use of the winning photos for a year. "Apple believes strongly that artists should be compensated for their work," the company says. "Photographers who shoot the final 10 winning photos will receive a licensing fee for use of such photos on billboards and other Apple marketing channels."

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