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 Rio 2016, Anthony Hernandez, Pt. Reyes in black-and-white, Picturelife and Bill Garrett.

  • Alan Taylor presents 40 images in Rio 2016: Photos From the Final Weekend, including rhythmic gymnastics, wrestling, triathlon, mountain biking, canoe, modern pentathlon, soccer, the Closing Ceremony and more.
  • Jonathan Blaustein writes about photographer Anthony Hernandez in An Unvarnished Look at Los Angeles. The 69-year-old photographer, who has labored in obscurity for 50 years, will be the subject of a retrospective at SFMOMA opening Sept. 24.
  • In My B&W Experiment in a Beautiful Place, Derrick Story shoots Raw+JPEG using a monochrome JPEG to see the effect in his EVF. And that beautiful place is Pt. Reyes, Calif.
  • As a service to the now defunct Picturelife and its customers, SmugMug is offering a zero-cost solution for Picturelife customers to access and download their photos and videos. According to the FAQ, ou have to set up a 14-day free, unlimited storage account with SmugMug but you can download them from there.
  • Bill Garrett, former editor of National Geographic, passed away on Aug. 13. Jack Limpert published an appreciation of Garrett, who moved the magazine away from "what is known in-house as the standard 'bare breasts and sunsets'" to what some suspected was a collaboration with the CIA as it took on subjects like "the cocaine trade, AIDS in Uganda, the slums of Harlem, environmental chaos."

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