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 Dan and Sandra Weiner, Stephanie Keith, smartphone travel photography tips and some financial advice.

  • "The New York that Dan Weiner photographed is gone," begins David Gonzalez portrait of the photographer. The Radical Empathy of Dan Weiner. Praised by Walker Evans and a mentor to Garry Winogrand, Weiner died in a plane crash in 1959 when he was 39. Also on view at the gallery are 20 images of children at play in the same era by Weiner's wife Sandra.
  • Alan Taylor presents 30 photos by Stephanie Keith of A 400-Mile Ride to Mark 150 Years of the Fort Laramie Peace Treaty between the Sioux Nation and U.S.
  • Hillary Grigonis describes How to Take Travel Photos With Just Your Smartphone after returning from an Adobe-sponsored junket to the British Virgin Islands. Adobe "challenged photographers to put down their dSLRs and spend an entire day shooting with nothing but our phone," she explains. They used the free Lightroom mobile to capture DNGs and edit images but that occupies just a paragraph of her in-depth report on what you gain and lose sticking with a smartphone.
  • Kirk Tuck has a few amusing thoughts on The Financial World after Apple's $1 trillion valuation. "Over the years we've had many opportunities to invest in photography stuff that would have probably bankrupted the business instead of helping it gain momentum," he writes, thinking about those 1990s digital backs (not to mention the software schemes). Meanwhile, as Michael Dell suggested Apple close down around then, a $10,000 stock buy would be worth $1.5 million now, Tuck calculates. Reminds us of a parable....

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