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 Harbin's melting ice sculptures, Lorena Turner, Joan Stupik, Tommy Brown, NASA photographers, Mark Laita, an iPhone at the party, JPEG 2000 and digital skills.

  • Mike Johnston visits with Tommy Brown at his themed retrospective at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica. "Brown is a photographer who doesn't play tricks and doesn't mess with viewers' heads -- he's just a gentle, compassionate, forthright observer of the deeper qualities of the places and people he's loved," he writes.
  • Jacqui Palumbo introduces The NASA Photographers Who Bring the Cosmos to Earth. They may not be pros, but fortunately for the rest of us, they are explorers who took along cameras.
  • Mark Laita talks about Serpentine, a project that became a book.
  • After sharing Frank Grygier's portrait of himself yesterday, Kirk Tuck wields his iPhone 5S to capture Dad's 91st Birthday.
  • In Finding and Converting Legacy Media 1: Still Images, Howard Oakley points out that the JPEG 2000 format is no longer support in macOS 10.15, which drops QuickTime 7 support. His free utility UTIutility can list any images in that format on your drive. And you convert them using GraphicConverter or even Preview, he adds.
  • Jeff Allen explains How Adobe Is Closing the Digital Skills Gap. It seems as if people are escaping educational institutions without the requisite computational problem-solving skills. Oh my.
