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 a few photos of the week, unusual gift ideas, how Molitor did it and images from a trip 70 years ago.

  • Alan Taylor presents 35 sumptuous Photos of the Week that include "aquarium dining in Singapore, the damaged Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, starlings over Rome, increasing Covid-19 cases worldwide, a drive-through Santa experience in Los Angeles, an aggressive woodpecker in New York City, Christmas lights in London, snowmaking in Switzerland and much more."
  • Jeff Bogle has put together an unusual set of Photography Gift Ideas That Will Level Up Anyone's Photos and won't empty your wallet.
  • In Fun: Techniques, Andrew Molitor reveals how he took school portraits of his daughters. Light on the setup, heavy on post. But the main trick? "I can't speak for anyone else's kids, but the key with mine is to get them in a good mood and make the whole shoot last about a minute," he writes.
  • In Swiss Roll, William Fagan shows digitized images from a roll of film shot 70 years ago that he recently developed when he acquired the Leica that exposed them. The blog post was published in September but today Marie Fazio writes about the discovery in the New York Times.

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