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 Romanian weddings, national monuments, melting glaciers, Sara Cucè , funny pet photos, Anna Cor, Skier Sunray box, Tuck's new camera, Moment mount, M1 MacBook Pros and Adobe MAX.

  • Michal Novotý presents his joyous images of Romanian Wedding Traditions. "Weddings in Oas are attended by hundreds, sometimes even 1,000 people and it is important that no expense is spared," he writes. (And, in a completely unrelated story," Lizzie Cernik explains how Andy from Glasgow met Becky from Illinois on a Greyhound bus and were engaged before they got off. But we just had to share their story.)
  • QT Luong writes about Our National Monuments, which is the subject of his newest book. Luong is the first to photograph all of America's 62 National Parks in large format.
  • Grace Ebert highlights German photographer Olaf Otto Becker's of images of Melting Glaciers. "Every day, huge thundering masses of ice break into the sea, causing the sea level to rise slowly but incessantly," he says.
  • On a related note, Alfredo Pourailly's Ice Postcards show the effects of climate change and pay tribute to the photo archive of the Alberto de Agostini Collection in the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum in Punta Arenas.
  • In Memory of the Eyes, Magali Duzant present the black-and-white photographs of Sara Cucè "that describes what it feels like to be neither here nor there."
  • Dan Havlik showcases 25 finalists in the Comedy Pet Photo Awards.
  • Sara Rose Sharp profiles Berlin-based Anna Cor whose work belies an Elegant Calm. "I am a calm person behind the lens and in general, I guess," Cor told her. "I really love as it touches your heart. The look of calm seems to express this the best way." The piece includes a free preset created by Cor to warm an image.
  • In his Skier Sunray Box III Review, Jim Kasson shows his GFX 100S-based system for digitizing film, which depends on that LED panel for illumination.
  • Kirk Tuck decided to reward himself with A Smaller, Lighter Camera that can mount his L system lenses. It's on its way (as is the blow back on his choice.)
  • Derrick Story likes the $30 Moment Multi-Threaded Mount for MagSafe for mounting his iPhone to a tripod using a magnet.
  • In What About Apple's New MacBook Pros? Thom Hogan shares his initial impressions and why he's not upgrading yet.
  • Adobe MAX opens tomorrow and Scott Kelby is ready If Something Big Happens. He signs off as "a guy who is just guessing about tomorrow, and he could be right, but it's just a guess." We'd guess it's not just a guess.

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