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 Scotland, a 60-foot photo, an extraordinary gentleman and putting an album on your Apple Watch.

  • In Beyond Braveheart and Nessie: Myths and Legends in Scotland, Kerri MacDonald presents 14 Hasselblad images by Glascow photographer Kieran Dodds. Unicorns, Nessie, it's all there. As for Unicorns, Dodds observes they "are so common in Scotland that people don't notice them." As for the Loch Ness monster, Dexter Gordon's It's You or No One is really the last word.
  • In Creating a 60-foot Photo, Donna Dotan and her team create a photo mural of City Field and the Manhattan skyline with the Phase One IQ3 100-Mp medium format system. Here's the video:
  • Joe McNally shot An Assignment with an Extraordinary Gentleman, Ed Lucas, the blind sportswriter and broadcaster. He used a Nikon D810 and three Nikkors: a 24-79mm, 70-200mm and 200-400mm plus some Profoto B4 strobes for the portraits.
  • You can Set an entire photo album as your Watch face, not just a photo as the background on your Apple Watch. It takes just three simple steps to arrange things so every time you wake the watch a new photo from the album is displayed.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
