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 Steven Kovacs, Ted Soqui, Chris Winton, Paul McDonough, travel tips and Gordon Parks.

  • In Underwater Photos Taken During Blackwater Dives, Grace Ebert highlights the open ocean dive images of self-taught photographer Steven Kovacs.
  • Isotta Poggi interviews Los Angeles photojournalist Ted Soqui who "shared some of the essential gadgets for his profession like a gas mask, a drone and of, course, his camera." He's been at it since the 1980s capturing everything "from the close-up portraits to the family businesses affected by protests to the empty city shut down by a pandemic."
  • Nature photographer Chris Winton uses 19th-century guides published by railroads and hotels to find often unnamed Waterfalls that have fallen off the map. It's waterfall season and a few of his images are featured in this roundup.
  • From the 1960s through the 1990s Paul McDonough went west to capture people, animals, architecture, land-and-cityscapes, all of American life pre-internet and pre-cell phone. The images have been collected into the 120-page Headed West, which the photographer was able to help edit despite Alzheimer's.
  • Australian photographer Peter Eastway has posted the first of a two-part Essential Manual for the Travel Photographer posing most of the topic as questions. The second part will go up tomorrow.
  • Gordon Parks did a seven-page spread for Life magazine that launched Jill Corey's singing career, a story retold with the cover image in her obituary.

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