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 Giverny, Halide on the iPad, Rick Sammon's new ebook, breathing, Andrew Molitor on words and Women of Concern.

  • John Leicester reports Monet's Garden Prepares to Reopen. You've seen the paintings, now you can see the photographs of the gardens at Giverny by Fran├žois Mori.
  • John Voorhees reviews the iPad Version of Halide. "You won't find another camera app that's been so carefully crafted with the iPad in mind," he writes.
  • Rick Sammon shares three behind-the-scenes travel stories from his new Kindle-only ebook Photo Pursuit. Each story comes with a list lessons learned.
  • Kirk Tuck explains The Importance of Proper Breathing in both swimming and taking photographs.
  • In Beliefs, Images, Culture, Andrew Molitor argues images are not taking over everything. We're still "word-based," he writes. "The idea, though, that we are evolving into a primarily visual culture, a culture of pictures without words, is pretty much completely wrong." You read it here first.
  • Yesterday the Women of Concern's Work of Art event showcased the ways in which creativity and humanitarian work collide. A recording of the 35-minute program and all six exhibits are now available online.

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