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 keeping cool, black fathers, landscape photography gear, Motif, the Getty Research Portal and a copyright case.

  • Alan Taylor presents 28 photos of people Trying to Keep Cool. And, we venture to say, succeeding. We particularly like the Ice Museum as a solid solution.
  • Maurice Berger continues his Race Series with Revealing the Lives of Black Fathers, a peek at Fathers by Robyn Price Pierre. "Though I was inspired by the relationship between my daughter and her father, I saw mirrors of that relationship all over my life -- from men that I saw every day, to men on my social media feed who I had gone to high school with and hadn't seen in years," she says. But to everyone else, they were invisible.
  • Thom Hogan has some advice for Choosing Gear for Landscape Photography. "Landscape is the type of photography I've been pursuing for decades now and probably have the most training and experience at," he begins.
  • You can still print books from Apple Photos using Motif, a free Photos plug-in for macOS High Sierra from RR Donnelly, which was the printer for Apple's book services.
  • In The People Behind the Getty Research Portal, Tristan Bravinder profiles the crew that maintains the Getty Research Portal, a free online search tool that aggregates records for digitized books and journals related to art history, which are contributed from libraries around the world. Nobody we know knows enough art history. Including us. The site itself may be a bit overwhelmed at the moment, but persist.
  • In Online Photos Can't Simply Be Re-Published, EU Court Rules, Janosch Delcker reports the European Court of Justice has ruled that Internet users must get photographer's permission even if images were already freely accessible. The surprising aspect of the case is the infringement itself: a German secondary school student used a photo from on a travel Web site.

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