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 Maureen Drennan, Jan Erik Waider, Timothy Boomer, Stella Kalinina, a poppy seed, David Hobby, Getty curators AMA and a Nikon Z fc AMA.

  • Stephanie Wade showcases Maureen Drennan's Atmospheric Photography, which "depicts themes of emotional experience through her conceptual landscape and portrait photography."
  • Grace Ebert highlights images of The Charred and Molten Rock Rippling Down From an Icelandic Volcano by Jan Erik Waider. "He spent three days getting as close as possible to the magma as it poured across the landscape and using a telephoto lens to document its changing forms in magnified detail," she writes.
  • Timothy Boomer captures The Colorful, Whimsical Plant Growths Caused by Cynipid Wasps in a series of macro photographs. "These tissue pockets provide shelter and nutrition for the maker and although some can be unsightly blemishes on the host, others, like these brightly colored growths of cynipid wasps, are bizarrely beautiful additions to the otherwise green leaves," Grace Ebert explains.
  • Stella Kalinina shows How L.A. Residents Are Reclaiming Industrial Spaces, "turning gasfields into gardens."
  • Harold Davis gets up close and personal with A Poppy Seed. "There's amazing detail and structure even in the smallest things in the natural world," he marvels.
  • In another installment in his _Strobist Lighting Cookbook, David Hobby shows his setup for photographing Conservancy Critters at the Howard County Conservancy.
  • In Why Getty Keeps Some Photographs in the Fridge, the Getty curatorial staff answer questions from social media followers about its photography collection. (Oh, the answer to the teaser is that it keeps dyes stable in old Polaroids.)
  • In a Reddit Ask Me Anything, DPReview's Richard Butler answers questions about A Pre-Production Nikon Z fc he got his hands on.

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