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 Sept. 15 satellite shot, women over 55, the pandemic, Trump's 'reality show' pictures, Quintin Lake's walk, live streaming and Artists Sunday.

  • NASA's Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of the United States on Sept. 15, showing the fires in the West, the smoke from those fires drifting over the country, several hurricanes converging from different angles.
  • Suzanne Sease presents images from the personal project of Bob Stevens. Using one light, a fill card and a small canvas backdrop, Stevens photographed women over 55 without any makeup. "An unexpected part of my experience is how vulnerable and candid they were, at times, breaking down," he says. "Not so much because of what they were saying, but my perception was that they were being 'listened' to and were moved that someone cared enough to ask."
  • The PBS NewsHour interviewed Phil Montgomery about Documenting the Pandemic. Montgomery photographed New York City funeral homes and healthcare workers on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis this past March.
  • Former White House photographer Pete Souza explains The Problem With Trump's 'Reality Show' Pictures in an interview with Alissa Wilkinson. "The only real authentic pictures I've seen of the Trump presidency -- when I say 'authentic,' I mean a behind-the-scenes image that makes you say, "Wow, that's a telling image" -- was the picture of Nancy Pelosi in the cabinet room, standing up, pointing her finger at Trump," he says.
  • Photographer Quintin Lake has completed his walk round the coast of Britain after five years and 6,214 miles. He talks to the BBC's Pia Harold about the epic journey in this four-minute clip:
  • In How to Get Started Live Streaming, LensRentals latest podcast covers both basic and advanced topics. (Not tempted.)
  • Artists Sunday is an alliance of artists, local arts agencies, cities, counties, state agencies, chambers of commerce, non-profit organizations and supportive sponsors who want to make the Sunday after Thanksgiving the most profitable day of the year for artists. Listings are free for artists.

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