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 Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, E.J. Bellocq, medium format's magic, wireless mesh networks and 'The Creative Self'.

  • Kirk Tuck takes two cameras on a day trip to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area for a little exercise. Which includes walking backwards to avoid a couple of rattlesnakes.
  • "Eighty-nine of E.J. Bellocq's glass-plate negatives were found in a desk drawer after he died," writes DAvid O'Neill in a brief piece on the photographer. In 1966, Lee Friedlander meticulously printed them using printing-out paper, a turn-of-the-century process. Deborah Bell Photographs and Fraenkel Gallery have a few available by appointment only at the moment.
  • Strobist David Hobby continues his Strobist Lighting Cookbook with The 'Magic' of Medium Format. "Look, we all want to be able to shoot with better gear. We just do," he writes.
  • In Wireless Mesh Networks: Everything You Need to Know, Glenn Fleishman explains the concept behind the easy way to provide Internet access all over your office away from the office. "Mesh networking is no longer a future waiting to arrive, but a fully realized present that can take the pain out of high-quality WiFi networking," he writes.
  • The Creative Self, the 12th annual Adobe 99U conference, will be held online June 17 and will be free to all who register.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
