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 Philippe Halsman's jump shots, Aerial, the Cinque Terre via Harold Davis' iPhone 6s and a stolen camera returned.

  • In Halsman, Jump on It, Rena Silverman present 19 of Philippe Halsman's jump shots. "For six years during the mid-1950s," she explains, "the Latvian-born Halsman -- who shot to the top just after coming to America thanks to Albert Einstein and a refugee ship -- ended each portrait session by asking his subjects to jump." Photographers Weegee and Edward Steichen jumped, along with famous actresses and politicians.
  • Aerial is a Mac OS screen saver based on the new Apple TV screen saver that displays the aerial movies Apple shot over New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, China, etc.
  • Harold Davis enjoys Orange Juice on the Cinque Terre Trail. And lunch in Vernazza. He took a few photos with his iPhone 6s, too.
  • In How Seattle Police and Social Media Solved Mystery of Stolen Camera, Kirk Johnson traces the Seattle police department's efforts to return Anthony Posey's Sony dSLR to him. "When people see a camera that has wedding pictures on it, they inherently want to help," said Sgt. Sean Whitcomb, a police spokesman.
