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 Benjamin Grant, rules of vision, Davis in Italy (and some mud) and digital literacy.

  • Emily Anne Epstein presents 20 images of The Awesomeness of Earth from Above from Benjamin Grant's Instagram project, Daily Overview. Grant is publishing a book of 200 of the high definition satellite photographs as well.
  • In Rules of Vision (Or, Things We Can't Help Seeing) -- Part I, Ming Thein lists "the autonomous/subconscious/reflex/automatic -- pick your preferred term -- visual responses that we should be aware of and seek to utilise when we compose an image."
  • Harold Davis continues his adventures in Italy with a fish-eye shot of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling and a little detour that required he be Rescued from the Mud.
  • Addressing Creative and Digital Literacy in K-12 considers "a person's ability to discover, create, analyze and share content online." And five things our schools can do about it. One of which is "teaching basic functionalities in Photoshop, then coaching students to develop their own digital workflow with other Web-based technologies." We used to get detention for the analog version of that.

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