To keep the wild world of photography on your mind midweek, here’s our roundup of what’s been happening in it lately.

- In honor of Veterans Day (or Remembrance or Armistice Day to some of you outside the U.S.), I have selected the above photo from The U.S. Army’s Flickr photostream, by Tech. Sgt. Roy Santana. It depicts U.S. Army Lt. Col, David Sigmund, greeting a young boy after passing out soccer balls to local children during exercise Flintlock 2007 in Bamako, Mali, Sept. 4, 2007. This photo offers a not often considered perspective of the breadth of work that our military men and women do as a means to foster relationships of peace, security and cooperation around the world.

- Thank Tank Photo has announced a new heavy duty shoulder camera bag. The Urban Disguise 70 Pro is designed for the photographer carrying two regular or pro size D-SLRs with lenses attached to each camera body – or even a 70-200 f2.8 lens attached to any camera body.

- Barbara Bordnick, the renown New York photographer whom, DP had the privilege of interviewing for the Spring 2009 issue, has a new calendar out called Floragraphics, which showcases more of her celebrated floral photographs.
