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 Steven Rubin, Jaguar's electric E-Type, Harold Davis, an Internet service upgrade and Mixology for Capture One.

  • In Haunting Poems and Photos From a State Torn by Fracking, Rosa Furneaux tells the story of poet Julia Spicher Kasdorf's six-year collaboration with photographer Steven Rubin. Their work has been published as Shale Play: Poems and Photographs from the Fracking Fields.
  • In Jaguar's Electric E-Type Marries '60s Sex Appeal and Tomorrow's Tech, Jim McAuley photographed the classic car after an electronic makeover in Monterey. Jaguar Land Rover's Classic division is happily reviving the model, tuning the electronic version to run like the gas model. We've always admired the auto designs of the 1960s, which exhibited both sleek lines and personality (in contrast to the bars of soap on the road today). Too bad a few other companies don't have a classic division.
  • Harold Davis was caught in a rainstorm East of the Sierras near Tioga Pass. So he whipped out his Nikon D850, set the aperture of 28-300mm Nikkor to f22 and zoomed to 62mm to get the shot of "the brush against the background of the western wall of peaks."
  • We may never hear from Kirk Tuck again. He's upgrading his Internet service to a fiber optic connection. And it's pouring down rain as the technician arrives. Then Tuck goes dark....
  • Gavin Seim has introduced Mixology, a set of his presets packaged as a Styles pack for Capture One. The $79 package is available for $39 until Sept. 14. His Lightroom presets are also on sale for $39, a 50 percent discount.

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