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 John Moore, Hiro, Punta Arenas Cemetery, an F-Stop sale and Margaret Atwood.

  • Getty Images special correspondent John Moore talks to Marigold Warner about Documenting Epidemics at Home and Away. He spent four weeks in 2014 covering the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and now he's finding ways to tell the coronavirus story in New York. "It's our job to find ways to tell stories, even with the restrictions in place and to do it in a way that respects humans as individuals," he says.
  • In Fish-Eye Business, Francis Hodgson discusses some pictures of Siamese fighting fish photographed by Hiro in the early 1980s. "There's not much to say," he begins. Plenty to marvel at, though.
  • Kevin Raber shares his images of Chile's Punta Arenas Cemetery, "one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world," in what is the first of a three-part series.
  • F-Stop having a Spring Sale with discounts up to 50 percent on its configurable backpack systems. You pick the backpack, the internals and the accessories to create just the right bag for your gear and use. The company also has a sale page with even more deals.
  • Margaret Atwood's Lockdown Diary has a few oddball suggestions for passing the time of day inspired by her grandmother's inept wartime knitting. "I won't bother with the photo sorting, the purging of old files, the delving into storage trunks, the wonderment at some of the things found there -- why did I save that and what exactly is it? -- or the reading of letters from boyfriends long gone now or bald," she promises. And she doesn't.

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