Slices of Life: Commuters Framed by the ‘Gap’ Found in Subway Stations

Framing passersby with light and shadows is a pretty common technique in street photography, and one that we've featured a number of times in the past.

Singapore-based photographer Weilun Chong frames his subjects with something that's a little more concrete -- literally. His "Please Mind the Gap" project features portraits of subway commuters framed in the gaps they're told to mind.

Nikon to Unveil a 70-200mm f/4 Lens Next Week With Fancy Next-Gen VR

Since it was announced back in 2006, Canon's 70-200mm f/4L IS lens has been an attractive option for photographers who want a lighter and cheaper alternative to the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS. For the price of one stop, one could get a lens that's nearly half as heavy (1.7lb vs 3.3lb) and significantly less expensive. Nikon shooters may soon have a similar choice as well: Nikon is planning to fill in this gap in its lens lineup by announcing its own 70-200mm f/4 a week from now.

Old Navy Follows in Gap’s Footsteps and Uses Photo without Permission

Last month we reported that a Flickr photographer had found his photograph of a car being used as a Gap clothing design without his permission. It now appears that appropriating images from the web wasn't limited to that design, nor just the Gap brand -- Old Navy, another brand owned by Gap, is now being accused of stealing a car photograph as well. A photographer was strolling around in an Old Navy store in El Centro, California when he came across a shirt that he just couldn't stop staring at. It featured a Land Cruiser that look remarkably similar to one he had photographed before.

Gap Uses Flickr Photo for Clothing Graphic without Permission

Flickr user Chris Devers recently found that one of his photographs had been used by The Gap as a design for children's clothes (here and here). The photo itself was published under a Creative Commons license requiring attribution, non-commercial use, and no derivative works -- usage conditions that were completely ignored.
