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 California wildfires, birding with fill flash, Forest McMullin and Michael Reichmann remembered.

  • In California Wildfires Drive Tens of Thousands From Their Homes, Alan Taylor presents 21 photos "from the past few days of the destruction, and those who are battling the blazes, rescuing people and animals, and those caught up in the chaos."
  • Moose Peterson captures Deep Forest Color in the Australian Rainforest with fill flash. Two shots of an Australian King Parrot shows the difference between fill flash and natural light.
  • Forest McMullin shot the African American Cowboy in black-and-white with a Sigma 24-35mm f2 Art lens. The zoom lets him use the 24mm and 35mm focal lengths he prefers with his primes without having to take the time to swap lenses. "This lens is unique in the marketplace and it's provided me with the just the right combination of features and performance to solve my unusual problem," he writes.
  • It's been three months since Michael Reichmann passed away . In Missing Our Friend , Kevin Raber remembers their friendship. And in Michael Reichmann -- Reflections Alain and Natalie Briot add their thoughts (and a some video).

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