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 Thomas Strogalski, Roger Steffens, a space photography auction, field curvature graphs, extra money and traveling with a baby.

  • Laura Staugaitis presents a few of Thomas Strogalski's images of Abandoned Cars in Hawaiian forests from his series Nature Takes Over.
  • In Tripping Through California During the 1970s, in Photos, Miss Rosen showcases a few images from Roger Steffens's book The Family Acid: California Trip. "California provides a nonstop set of visual stimulations, ranging from portraits of fellow creators to nature at its most exhilarating, from seaside to mountaintops, desert to redwood forests, tumultuous cityscapes with their ever-changing ephemera to tranquil retreats," he writes. "I never dared go anywhere without my camera."
  • Sotheby's Space Photography Online auction of over 100 original NASA "red number" prints as well as some Lewis Morris Rutherford lantern slides ends Dec. 3. Fun just to look through, too.
  • In Practical Use of Field Curvature Graphs -- the 50mm Primes, Roger Cicala covers some fascinating optical topics including front and back focusing, why he tests wide open, the flaws in every lens and more. Not to be missed.
  • Hanna Brooks Olsen has some ideas about How Photographers Can Make Extra Money During the Holidays that you may not have heard before.
  • In Traveling With a Baby, Matthew Karsten provides a few timely tips about one of the more difficult accessories to take along.

More to come! Including our curated list of Black Friday deals on Nov. 29. Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
