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 Finn Beales, why people are congregating in public with their smartphones, a gargoyle and hanging an exhibition.

  • In Traversing The National Parks Of Northern California, Anna Ker follows Wales photographer Finn Beales and his wife on "their journey from the Marin Headlands to the Pacific Ocean. Wanderlust-inducing doesn't even begin to describe it."
  • Emily Anne Epstein takes you Searching for Pokémon Go in 22 photos that may explain why the people around you are behaving strangely. Britton Peele's primer will get you up to speed on the phenomenon.
  • Harold Davis presents his Handsome Gargoyle Devil and the Pinhole Effect, a black-and-white profile of one of Notre Dame's rain spouts processed in a combination Nik Siver Efex and Topaz B&W Effects.
  • In Hanging Pictures in the Land of Giants, Julian Brooks shows how a gallery hangs an exhibition without putting holes in the wall. A foam-core scale model with scaled model pieces of the pictures, graphics and gallery benches lets the designers experiment without breaking a sweat.

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