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 Dan Lincoln Harris, Cris Toala Olivares, Michael McIlvaney, Comedy Wildlife Photography finalists, challenging times, the best camera, Jeff Katz and a SIP party.

  • Stephanie Wade presents the Serene Images of Frozen Natural Landscapes of American photographer Dan Lincoln Harris. "Harris finds beauty in the details-- shapes in the ice and sand, reflections in glistening water, the texture of rock formations," she writes.
  • Cris Toala Olivares documents unpredictable volcanoes as well as the tamed geometry of civilization in Volcanic Artworks. "In these uncertain times of the coronavirus pandemic, I realize more than ever that there are valuable lessons to be learnt from those who are connected to the Earth," he says. "We all depend on the Earth."
  • In The Theater of the Street, Gina Williams profiles British photographer Michael McIlvaney "and his haunting series Subordinate." She writes, "Through his photographs, McIlvaney asks viewers to ask their own questions about society and human interaction in a changing world and what he calls the 'evolving script of the theater of the street' as observed through the 'peephole or crevice' of his viewfinder."
  • Finalists for the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are on display.
  • Derrick Story reflects on Photography in Challenging Times. "I've never been a 'doom and gloom' reporter," he writes. "But I'm also a realist and see clearly what's going on around me." There's only one thing to do about that, he concludes.
  • In This Is the Best Camera You Will Ever Own, Ian Stanley argues for the ultimate image processor.
  • Janelle Okwodu tells The Untold Story Behind Prince's Iconic Sign O' the Times Album Cover captured by Jeff Katz.
  • You Are Invited to Our SIP Party on Sunday, Sept. 27 at 2 p.m. PDT, Harold Davis writes. There's no planned instruction but plenty of shop talk is promised. Registration required.

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