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 Paolo Pellegrin, the last normal photo, two color fallacies, a print, an anamorphic illusion and Mike McCaskey.

  • In Turning the Camera From War to Family, conflict photographer Paolo Pellegrin leaves his coverage of the aftermath of the Australian wildfires to return home before travel restrictions closed the border. He lives in a farmhouse near Geneva, Switzerland, with his wife and two daughters. "We're pretty isolated in our little cabin," he writes. "We're very fortunate to all be here together."
  • Alice Cuddy presents a selection of 13 images from BBC readers that were The Last 'Normal' Photo on Your Phone and there's more here from the thousands of replies.
  • Jim Kasson explains Two Digital Camera Color Fallacies. It's a deep dive into metamerism but it starts with a good joke.
  • Mike Johnston offers his first Print Crit of an image by Frank Gorga. The evaluation is enlightening and the back story is fascinating.
  • OK, this anamorphic illusion in South Korea of a Massive Wave is just fun:

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
