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 the Olympics from several angles, Jesse Marlow, Casper Rolsted, Jameisha Prescod, the Epson ET-8550 printer and cameras at Cannes.

  • The Guardian has published a few images of the Tokyo Olympics 2020 but this one shot by Chang Lee leading John Branch's story is the one that tells the story. "These are not like any other Olympics and it is as obvious as the empty seats in the background," Branch writes. OTOH, Joe McNally found what might pass for a crowd in A Wall of Sandwiches.
  • In Anything Can Happen and Probably Will, Australian photographer Jesse Marlow says, "Street photography is something that can't be rushed or forced." None of his images were staged but he often had to wait a long time for a promising scene to develop and more often came home with nothing.
  • In Spring Emerges in an Enchanting Timelapse of Denmark's Landscapes, Grace Ebert showcases Casper Rolsted's Scandanavia's seasonal transformation.
  • Ellyn Kail reports a Self-Portrait in Lockdown by Jameisha Prescod has won the Wellcome Photography Prize. "One thing I've always returned to when dealing with low mood is knitting," says Prescod, whose image portrays both her depression and her knitting during the pandemic.
  • Kevin Raber has published his extensive Epson ET-8550 Review. "This printer is just fun and it's great for those who have never printed before," he writes. "There is zero intimidation factor."
  • In Video Is Still (Mostly) Video, Thom Hogan lists the cameras used by the 52 feature films presents at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. "Dedicated video cameras still dominate, even in the documentary categories," he writes.

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