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 Merkel with robots, converting to black-and-white in Photos, an Arbus portfolio and McNally on a carousel in the rain.

  • In Hi, Robot: Angela Merkel Summiting With Machines, Alan Taylor presents 15 amusing images of the German chancellor " greeting, meeting, and shaking hands with robots in factories, industrial fairs, museums, technical institutes and more." And to think robots can't vote.
  • Mark Hemmings explores three black-and-white editing approaches for iPhone photos using the native iOS Photos app.
  • Claudia Roth Pierpont presents a Diane Arbus portfolio in Full Exposure, which will appear in the May 23 issue of The New Yorker. Her subjects are "people who appear like metaphors somewhere further out than we do."
  • Joe McNally uses Six Flashes in the Rain to turn a gloomy carousel ride into a dramatic adventure. Changing the white balance helped, too.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
