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 Barbara Baker Burrows, the Nikon D700, Leica M mount lenses on the X1D and Joel Meyerowitz in five images.

  • In Remembering Picture Editor Barbara Baker Burrows, Lily Rothman writes, "Burrows once said she pinched herself sometimes, because working at Life felt like a dream. But that extended 'family' knew that couldn't be the case: her magic worked because there was, at its heart, something very real."
  • Kirk Tuck Bought Another Nikon Classic for pennies on the dollar. This time a full-frame D700. He's not alone in bonding with old gear, as the comments show.
  • Ming Thein has been experimenting with Leica M Mount Lenses on the X1D. The combination addresses two issues: "firstly, the desire for something that operates in the way you want (i.e. transparently) and that makes you want to shoot with it; and secondly, the small/light question."
  • In Joel Meyerowitz's Career Is a Minihistory of Photography, Teju Cole examines five of Meyerowitz's images covering the breadth of the photographer's career and the history of photography as well.

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