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 hidden Armenians, Kuching, NASA's wind tunnels and focal lengths.

  • In Recovering Hidden History Along the Armenian-Turkish Border, James Estrin explores the work of Anahit Hayrapetyan, an Armenian Christian, and Serra Akcan, a Muslim from Turkey, who spent eight years documenting Armenian and Turkish life on both sides of the border. "We are doing this project because we want to change the single most accepted thing in Armenia and Turkey -- that the Armenian and Turkish people are enemies," Akcan said.
  • Robin Wong's Postcards: My Quiet Hometown, Kuching were shot with just the Olympus PEN E-P5 and M.Zuiko 25mm f1.8 lens. "One camera and one lens to do it all. I had so much fun shooting around Kuching, though my time was limited," he writes.
  • Historic Photos of NASA's Cavernous Wind Tunnels includes 39 of the tunnels NASA used to test and refine designs for airplanes, spacecraft and other vehicles and structures.
  • In Quote O' the Day: Jim Simmons, Mike Johnston praises Simmons' formulation for the perception various focal lengths provide.

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