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 no new White House photographer, parades, zooming in Google+ and bad clients.

  • Olivier Laurent makes The Case for Donald Trump's Official White House Photographer. "The President-elect has yet to name [Obama White House photographer] Souza's replacement," he writes. "It's even unclear whether the position of official White House photographer will be kept once Trump takes office. If it is abandoned, that decision will represent a break from 40 years of precedent." The President-Elect did get a Secret Service-approved smartphone to tweet with (and perhaps take incredible, really awesome selfies). The White House Flickr account with Souza's photos has been moved to make room for the new administration but it notes, The White House Hasn't Made Any Photos Public Yet.
  • George Georgiou finally found Where Americans Still Stand Together. Along parade routes. "Parades make the community visible to itself," he observes while presenting a series of black-and-white portraits of America.
  • John Nack reports that Photo Zoom Returns to Google+ (could have used that on Georgiou's photos) with five different ways to invoke it. We tried it on our photos and it works as advertised.
  • Kirk Tuck spent the day Firing a Bad Client while the Greenberg and Reznicki tell a similar bad client story that ends with the admonition Caveat Artifex (or let the artist beware). Been there, done that.

It's no holiday so we're working but we're observing the day with words of wisdom from our first President.
