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 revisiting the same spot for 40 years, Justyna Mielnikiewicz, a big print order and Davis in the Dolomites.

  • In Photos: What does it look like to stand in the same spot for 40 years?, Rian Dundon presents the work of Camilo José Vergara, who has spent over 40 years rephotographing the same neglected corners in American cities.
  • In Awarding a Photographer's 'Stubbornness', James Estrin presents nine images of modern Russia as seen by Russians who have become ethnic minorities in former Soviet republics. They were taken by photographer Justyna Mielnikiewicz, who has been awarded the W. Eugene Smith Fund’s 2016 grant in humanistic photography. Self-taught, her inspiration was the photo essays of W. Eugene Smith, but she's no beginning. "This is a prize specifically for not giving up, for commitment and stubbornness," she said.
  • Jim Kasson had A Big Print Order but he hadn't fired up his big Epson printer since January. After he got the heads firing on all cylinders, he wasn't able to print from Lightroom. The fix was pretty simple, though. Restart Lightroom. He explains why that worked.
  • Harold Davis is wandering through a part of Italy near the Alps where half of our family originated. Dawn on Lake Como and Heart of the Dolomites are saving us a trip back.

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