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 climate change, the Lens Blog, a Huawei campus, Ragnar Axelsson, the mirrorless market, the Nikon D3500 and Mike Johnston.

  • Josh Haner has been Documenting Climate Change by Air, Land and Sea for the last four years. James Estrin interviews him about the challenges of shooting underwater, among other things.
  • On a related note, PDNPulse reports New York Times Closes Lens Blog: A Hiatus or the End? "Lens, the photo blog of The New York Times, will stop publishing at the end of May and go on a 'hiatus' for an indefinite period." In a note to staff, Meaghan Looram, director of photography, added Lens would "evolve into an unrivaled source for those who want to read about and think about photography" to reach new readers.
  • Alan Taylor presents 15 photos of Huawei's European-Themed Campus in China, a collection of replicas of European landmarks.
  • Icelandic photographer Ragnar Axelsson discusses his black-and-white images of Glaciers. "The glaciers are like a book, because there is information in the ice that speaks about the weather hundreds of years back in time," he says. "Every year we are losing five years of the information being stored in the glaciers."
  • In Credit Where Credit Is Due, Thom Hogan evaluates how the major players have done in the mirrorless market. Fujifilm and Sony are the big winners, he writes.
  • Ming Thein is infatuated with his $300 Nikon D3500. "Controls are in familiar places and muscle memory is happy to take over," he enthuses. "Why can't all cameras be this well sorted?" (He knows why.)
  • In No More Diet (And Other Blog Notes), Mike Johnston notes he'll be going under the knife June 4 for an eye operation and unable to publish for a week. We wish him well.

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