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 the Dead Sea, New York's standpipes, a 3D attachment for your mobile device, S Magazine and the Db Hugger.

  • In A Trip to the Dead Sea, Alan Taylor presents 27 photos of that buoyant body and the bodies it attracts. As a former agricultural worker in the region, we would just warn against going in if you've got any cuts. They'll sting.
  • 'Standpipes of New York' presents Clay Benskin's lunch time project, which now numbers 45 "portraits" of the public plumbing which "show them to have as much personality as the city's residents." Which may say more about New Yorkers than they may like.
  • Canadian startup Matter and Form has created Bevel, an attachment that can capture 3D images on any smartphone or tablet. The $89 device uses an eye safe laser light, and the existing camera on your Android or IOS device:
  • Leica has published S Magazine No. 9, which includes Enrique Badulescu, Joachim Baldauf, Aglaja Brix & Florian Maas, Bil Brown, Arved Colvin-Smith, Anna Daki, Rui Faria, Christian Geisselmann, Esther Haase, Marie Hochhaus, Benjamin Kaufmann, James Meakin, Monica Menez, Hector Perez, Elizaveta Porodina, Rene & Radka, Christian Rinke, Tristan Rösler, Takahito Sasaki and special guest Ellen von Unwerth.
  • The Db Hugger Collection is a lightweight, dynamic backpack to hold and organize whatever you need on the go. The ultra light rib cage protection is perfect for traveling photographers who want to consolidate their gear and their clothes, the company said, but still have quick access to their camera. You do not want to know the company's full name. Must mean something else in Norwegian.

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