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 Mike Goldwater, the Sigma fp, rain photography,, Jonathan Blaustein and Maria Perengo.

  • On the Tube in the 70s presents a few intimate images captured long ago by Mike Goldwater in London's Underground, a very public place.
  • Steve Huff rented a Sigma fp from LensRentals. "The crazy thing," he writes, "is that after only one hour with it in my hands and giving it a go I went to B&H photo and ordered the body and 45 2.8 lens for myself, my personal use." He lists 11 things he likes about it and five he doesn't.
  • Jasenka Grujin suggests Camera Settings for Rain Photography for dealing with the low-light, high-speed situation.
  • Wikimedia Commons has launched to search its 12 million public domain photographs.
  • In Building Your Team, Jonathan Blaustein announces the launch of "a Kickstarter campaign for Extinction Party, my very first photo book, which will be published by Yoffy Press in Atlanta. "The project required so much work from other people, including my publisher, Jennifer Yoffy, who edited and proposed the book when she came to ski in Taos last February," he notes.
  • Ah, Maria Perengo has left us. "Eddie, Kiss Me Good Night," her little mouse Topo Gigio that was "always on the edge between imagination and reality" would beckon the wooden Ed Sullivan. And he would. Here's a clip with Topo showing off a photo album in the days before Photoshop:

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