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. This time we look at a new housing development, autofocus accuracy, a trio of tulips and getting started in street photography.

  • Ming Thein's The Beginning of the End wonders if "we are chasing our own tails in the pursuit of an ever-receding and increasingly nebulous goal of happiness, but only in the form that social media deems is correct" as land is cleared for a new housing development.
  • In D850 and a7RIII Autofocus Accuracy Compared, Jim Kasson concludes, "Although Nikon does well in some of the prelims, the Sony wins the autofocus accuracy contest by the end of the competition."
  • Harold Davis used three different 85mm lenses to capture A Trio of Tulips. The macro shots were facilitated by a 50mm extension tube. Then he added a +4 close-up filter.
  • David Geffin explains Why You Should Try Street Photography & Five Things to Bear in Mind if You Do. "If you've thought about trying street photography, this article is for you," he promises.

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