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 the Mediterranean migrant crisis, a smaller camera trend, light box photography with an iPhone and the end of Reciprocity Failure.

  • The Atlantic's In Focus has 34 images of The Mediterranean Migrant Crisis, noting "60,000 migrants have already made the journey across the Mediterranean Sea this year, landing in Southern Europe, while another 1,800 attempted the crossing but did not survive."
  • Thom Hogan suggests Where We're Headed is "shooting a smallish-but-capable camera that's not a dSLR in the mid-range."
  • Harold Davis tries his light box technique on a Floral Square with a twist. "Last week when I had a composition on my light box I photographed it with a high resolution camera on tripod," he writes. "Then I thought, why not do it using my iPhone as well."
  • Stan Banos has announced his Reciprocity Failure blog "has finally come to the end of its run." He's busy salvaging 40+ years of negatives attacked by "some insidious mold, fungus, whatever" in his fireproof but air-tight safe.

More to come...
