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 Gohar Dashti, the Louis Roederer Discovery Award winner, Pitlane and the U.S. women's soccer team.

  • In Tehran's Abandoned Courtyards, Staircases, and Bedrooms, Kate Sierzputowski presents the work of Gohar Dashti whose images "reveal the power of nature to consume and conquer a home."
  • In Inside Hungary's Military-Themed Summer Camps, Sarah Roberts reviews Kontakt by Máté Bartha, which won this year's Louis Roederer Discovery Award. "Throughout the series, moments of tenderness are mingled with something more sinister, and the purpose and of these military camps remains purposefully ambiguous," she writes.
  • Ming Thein visits Pitlane in black-and-white with a Nikon Z 7. It must be an aesthetic choice to clip the shadows so severely. Pull any of the images up in your favorite editor and look at the histogram. You can pull a good deal more detail out of the shadows using the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop CC even though the images are JPEGs straight out of the camera.
  • Even after the tournament has ended, the U.S. women's soccer team keeps scoring. Donna Morris, Adobe executive vice president and chief human resources officer, lists a few Leadership Lessons From the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team. OTOH, Tim Carmody notes how difficult it's been for the team's only mom, Jessica McDonald, to manage. "Child care in particular was very difficult, because it's expensive and we don't get paid much," she says. "If I put [my son] in a daycare, that's my entire paycheck, you know?" And, just to end on an upbeat note, Emma Brockes sums up the effect of Megan Rapinoe's 'Egotism', "Rapinoe's win and her subsequent attitude to winning was, in fact, purely one for the team. My God, it felt good." Indeed.

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