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 Tiananmen protest pictures, the Moscow Metro, matching color in grayscale, the Sierra snowpack and Sony a9 self heating.

  • In Hidden Away for 28 Years, Tiananmen Protest Pictures See Light of Day, Luo Siling presents David Chen's black-and-white photographs he took with his Yashica of the protest at Tiananmen Square in Beijing in the spring of 1989. He's only recently digitized the negatives. "Twenty-eight years have passed, the world should know what happened," he said.
  • Alan Taylor presents Scenes From the Moscow Metro, a set of 24 Reuters photos showing the 80-year-old system prepping for the 2018 World Cup.
  • Russell Brown demonstrate a classic technique using grayscale channels to match colors in an image:
  • In Sierra Snowpack, Hwy 120 Status, Lloyd Chambers presents a series of iPhone images of the Sierras. "Snow depth varies from two feet to 40 feet, depending on where drifts and windblown areas are found," he writes.
  • Jim Kasson's ninth post on the Sony a9 measures Sony a9 Self Heating.
