  • The earliest known photographic images of Tibet to have left that country were auctioned off earlier this week in London. Taken by a British political officer in 1903 during a military campaign, they reveal an unseen world unfamiliar to even contemporary Tibetans. NPR’s Morning Edition has the full story and a slide show of the pictures.

  • The Lens Blog asks “Can photography bookstores survive?” They talk to Timothy Whelan who is closing his much loved bookstore in Rockport, Maine.

  • In space, no one can hear you ... sing? British singer Dido (you know, the one who sang with Eminem) is being sued by NASA astronaut Bruce McCandless for “unauthorized use of his likeness.” A 1984 photo of him in the midst of a space walk (see below) is the cover of her new album “Safe Trip Home.” The rest of the story here.

  • The Photo Attorney has posted videos from the recent Telluride Photo Festival. They include her own seminar “Legal Issues for Photographers” as well as talks on “Macro Photography,” “SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for Photographers,” and “Extreme Photography Makeovers,” whatever that is.

  • Pee-wee Herman ran around Manhattan snapping pictures yesterday and posting them to his Twitter feed. The one below on the subway is my favorite.
