Welcome to our new photography blog. In this forum, which makes up part of our revamped photography page, the Guardian and Observer picture editors and photographers will all pitch in with news and views and answers to questions – on anything in the photographic world that has caught our eye or rattled our cages. We hope you will respond and contribute to the discussion by commenting, suggesting new topics or posing questions for us. Guardian picture editor Fiona Shields will try to explain some of the thinking behind the selection of photographs in the Guardian and Observer, a subject that always arouses readers’ curiosity – and sometimes their wrath.

On Thursday, came a post from Martha from titled simply “Goodbye”: “This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my headteacher and taken to her office. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners because of a headline in a newspaper today.

"I only write my blog not newspapers and I am sad I am no longer allowed to take photos. I will miss sharing and rating my school dinners and I’ll miss seeing the dinners you send me too. I don’t think I will be able to finish raising enough money for a kitchen for Mary’s Meals either."

Martha’s father, Dave, added a note of explanation, saying: “Martha’s school have been brilliant and supportive from the beginning and I’d like to thank them all. I contacted Argyll and Bute council when Martha told me what happened at school today and they told me it was their decision to ban Martha’s photography.”

Beef Erupts Over Crossword Guru’s Hip-Hop Slang Clue : The Two-Way

According to some, Shortz took a false step with this past Saturday’s puzzle, when he included a clue steeped in hip-hop slang. The clue asked for a 5-letter word that means “Wack, in hip-hop.”

We’ve got a great blogpost on our Crossword blog about what happened here.

The letter of complaint about the clue was forwarded to the puzzle’s editor Will Shortz, which as Deb Amlen notes at Wordplay, the NYT puzzle’s blog, is not a rare occurrence:

In his home office in Westchester, Mr. Shortz has file drawers of letters he has saved over the years, all claiming to have found a mistake in the puzzle…

The letter writers are either extremely pleased with themselves for having gotten one over on the puzzle master, or they are angry because it seems inconceivable that a mistake could have been made and they want their money back.

Shortz - something of a legend in American crosswording - replied with some citations:

The Dictionary of Contemporary Slang, by Tony Thorne, defines “illin’” as “bad, uncool,” and says it is a buzzword in the rap and hip-hop cultures. It seems to me that’s roughly the same as “wack” in the sense of worthless or stupid.

So who is right? And how can we tell? Read more here.
