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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at an inexpensive Web album application, plastic lens mounts, a year wearing Google Glass and a poignant photo essay.

  • LAJ Design's Luke Jackson has released his $7.99 Quickie Web Albums to build Web-based photo albums from your digital images. "Quickie is simple to use, but full of the options to let you customize your albums. You just import your photos, pick where to save the album to and then create."
  • Roger Cicala takes on the assumption that plastic lens mounts are inferior to metal mounts on short lenses. NSFW images of those lenses, BTW.
  • In I, Glasshole: My Year With Google Glass, Mat Honan "made people very uncomfortable" but lived to tell about it. But one day, he believes, the glasses will be on the other face, too.
  • Today of all days, we celebrate both endings and beginnings. In Nancy Borowick's images of her family struggling with cancer, the story of an ending is one of humor and love. It's the only way to keep the wheels round on that bumpy road.

More to come...
