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 the March on Washington, Robert F. Bukaty, an endless summer, Fall Foliage map, image quality, Legacybox, Buzzfeed and expert witnesses.

  • Getty Images Foto takes a look behind the scenes of The March on Washington on the 55th anniversary of the historic event.
  • In Daily Life in Maine, Alan Taylor presents 36 photos by Associated Press photographer Robert F. Bukaty that make "daily" look rare. Not to be missed.
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Peter Amend about his shoot The Endless Summer for Santa Barbara Magazine. You can rent a VW bus from Dustie Wagens in Santa Barbara if you need wheels.
  • The 2018 Fall Foliage Prediction Map for the continental U.S. has just been published. Not much to get excited about for another month, though.
  • In 'Ultimate Image Quality': Is It Enticing to You?, Mike Johnston wonders if Nikon's Z System goal scores any points. "It's a target that moves as time passes," he points out. And certainly no one is going to value any less the work of the masters of the 20th century because the target has changed. But when it opens up new frontiers in low-light imaging and brings image stabilization to the F mount lenses that didn't have it, it promises to let us capture more things we've seen that have not been photographable. That's enticing.
  • Legacybox can preserve your tapes, film and pictures by transferring them to the cloud, thumb drive or DVDs. The firm provides a mailer with safety barcodes and a pre-paid shipping label to send your original to its 200 employees working in a 50,000 square foot production campus in Chattanooga, Tenn. Prices start at $87.95 for three 24-image rolls of film.
  • Alex Ventura reports Buzzfeed Forbids Crediting Photographers in fan groups. "According to the admins of the group, this falls under spam: no advertising or promoting, no sharing social media pages." Uh, no, it doesn't.
  • Greenberg and Reznicki expound on Our Expert Opinion on Expert Witnesses, using a couple of scenes from My Cousin Vinnie featuring Marisa Tomei in her Oscar-winning role as Ms. Mona Lisa Vito. "How realistic is this courtroom depiction?," they ask. "In fact, it's listed at #3 of the 25 Greatest Legal Movies in The American Bar Association's publication, the ABA Journal. But it's #1 on our list." If you need an excuse to watch Tomei, that will have to do.
