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 Hurricane Irma in Florida, Photoville, the Sigma Cine 85mm T1.5 FF lens, selecting colors in Photoshop, Julia Nimke, camera repair experiences and what you call those painted boards with holes in them.

  • In Sleeping Next to Stonehenge, Terri Stone interviews German photographer Julia Nimke about arriving after closing and spending the night in her van after a hippy named Rudi translated the story of Stonehenge for her.
  • In Sony A7R II Repaired via Sony Pro Services, Lloyd Chambers and two readers recount their experiences with recent Leica and Sony repairs. (Pros, to answer Ross J's question, do not rely on a single point of failure; a pro would have two bodies.)
  • Photo Cut-Outs are what you call "those end-of-the-pier painted boards into which you stick your head to get photographed." In case anyone asks.

More to come (and we're not kidding today, with a handful of important announcements coming up)! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
