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 weird black-and-whites, new street shooters, Jack Latham, Kost's 10 tips, Polar///D Super 70, pros blame themselves and the return of color.

  • Alan Taylor found 30 Weird, Wonderful Photos From Another Era. None of them in color.
  • LensCulture street photography awards celebrate Street Photography's New Stars and The Guardian picks its favorites.
  • The BJP International Photography Award goes to Jack Latham for his series Parliament of Owls on Bohemia Grove, which explores the dangers of conspiracy theories and fake news.
  • Julieanne Kost shares Ten Quick Tips From My Recent Trip to Death Valley. Not your usual listicle.
  • Polar///D Super 70 is Joshua Gross's eight-month rebuild of a Polaroid classic, turning it into "a functioning digital camera without significantly modifying it's outward appearance."
  • David Williams suggest you Blame Yourself. He argues "if you give a pro photographer a $700 camera, and give a rookie a $5,000 camera, the pro will produce the better image." (Ah, but give the rookie a smartphone and see what happens.) That title? "When pros screw up, they are far more likely to blame themselves than to blame the gear," he writes.
  • In Creative Democracy: A Vote for Brilliant Colors and Pure Joy, Brenda Milis details Adobe's third visual trend of the year as we return "to fun, saturated color, vibrancy and joy." Color, in a word.

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