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 Snapchat, photos in the dark, Artistic Eye, a simply gorgeous sunrise, the ICS vintage camera fair, searching for photos on iOS and OS X and a tribute to 80 years in print.

- In Last Minute Pictures, Joe McNally gets the shot even when the light is gone. "The digital chip sees things your eyes might not," he writes.
- In De Youngsters' Photos Get the Look of Masterpieces, Adobe showed off Artistic Eye, a style transfer technology created in collaboration with the de Young museum in San Francisco, at the de Youngster's Art Party. The de Young Museum has long encouraged artistic pursuits among children (we were one of them). Here's the video:
- Moose Peterson captures a Simply Gorgeous Sunrise! at the Winnemucca Dunes. "It was the most amazing sunrise I've shot in years!" he writes.
- Bellamy Hunt visits the ICS vintage camera fair in Ginza and finds some amazing things in pristine condition:
- OSXDaily explains How to Search Photos on iPhone and iPad and How to Search in Photos on Mac for Matches & Attributes.
- Christopher Robinson, the editor of Sony's AlphaUniverse.com, reflects On the Passing of an Epoch. The passing, that is, of Popular Photography and American Photo.
