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 Eraldo Peres, Sanne Derks, Nomi Baumgart, Hans Johnson, celebrations, margins, names and color.

  • In Brazil Procession Celebrates the Holy Spirit, AP photographer Eraldo Peres captures the Folia of the Divine Holy Spirit. "Like a medieval caravan, the group framed by small red and white flags is comprised of more than 300 people, many of them on horseback," he writes. Cowboys and accordians, how can you beat that?
  • Dutch photographer Sanne Derks spent a few days Circling Sicily on Its Regional Trains (gift link) for just $100. But nothing went according to plan, of course. Buses figured prominently.
  • Landscapes of the Soul presents a few images by German photographer Nomi Baumgart on display at the Leica Gallery in Wetzlar until Oct. 5. The exhibit focuses on "our responsibility toward the future and the impact of our current lifestyles on coming generations."
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Hans Johnson about a piece he did for The Adventure Journal.
  • Derrick Story has been busy Capturing the Joy of Celebration with his camera. "The sense of accomplishment captured in graduation ceremonies, Father's Day and the debut of summer activities can brighten our spirits," he writes.
  • In Low Margin Versus High Margin, Thom Hogan looks at how Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon and Sony are positioning for a future with no low-end cameras.
  • In Asian Photographers Share the Stories Behind Their Names, Arin Yoon and Shuran Huang asked a few photographers about the origin of their names and presents the replies along with photos. "It felt good to be in the company of other Asian photographers after two years of interacting with this community through screens," Arin Yoon writes. "We drifted onto the topic of our names -- not only their meanings and origins but also how our identities are often shaped by our cultural and familial traditions."
  • New Look, Same Great Look, Kim Beil, who teaches art history at Stanford University, examines "the history of humans being confounded by color photography."

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