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 protester portraits, Kodak Tower, a smartphone deep water test and Steve Jobs prints.

  • In Occupy Wall Street: Where Are They Now?, Accra Shepp recalls "noticing familiar faces in the social justice movements sweeping the country. It was as if Occupy had served as a crash course in activism and now the alumni were seeking to change the world. I tracked a number of them down." And here are their then-and-now dual portraits.
  • RIT Big Shot No 32: Kodak Tower last night required 2,800 volunteer participants using hand-held electronic flash units and flashlights plus 24 Profoto B1 electronic flash units to light the landmark. We can recall being shooed away by security years ago as we arrived early for an appointment and framed the building in our viewfinder. Not much to hide any more, apparently.
  • Everything ApplePro conducts a iPhone 7 vs. Galaxy S7 Deep Water Test at 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and deeper feet (the iPhone wins):
  • Menuez Fine Art Prints is offering a set of rare black-and-white photographs of Steve Jobs by Doug Menuez from 1985. Unframed letter-sized prints are $225.

We'll have a few Photokina stories to publish shortly, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
