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 Grace Molteni, Ross Mantle, medical photography, classic cars, S1 vs. SL, fakes, color theory and thetta reddast.

  • In Oakland Is Alive With Radical Protest Murals, Grace Molteni catalogs the movement with a Fujifilm X100T.
  • In The Other Side of Las Vegas, Stephanie Wade talks to Ross Mantle, who was commissioned by the New York Times to photograph North Las Vegas for the 10th anniversary of the recession. "The images were aesthetically specific to North Las Vegas and the narrative of this story, but the themes I had in mind were more universal," he says.
  • Ellyn Kail describes the life of a Medical Photographer in her ongoing series of peculiar photography jobs.
  • Ming Thein gets behind the Driver's Seat of some classic cars (in a manner of speaking). Somehow, this particular angle disappoints because, as he says, "there really was something special about the metal on show here."
  • Kirk Tuck compares the Panasonic S1R/S1, which he likes, to the Leica SL, which he admires. "The Panasonic cameras are much better to actually hold and carry around and use throughout a long shooting day," he writes.
  • Paul Melcher explains How to Catch a Fake. "Ironically, photography has evolved mostly as a tool to alter reality rather than to reproduce it with fidelity," he writes.
  • In Understanding Colors in Photography, Jason Rows spins the color wheel around to explain how hues relate to each other.
  • In It'll Be Fine, Dave Williams disables his Nikon D810 in a waterfall, drives 351 miles to shoot foxes and finds himself without a camera. "Thetta reddast," says his host Midge, who lends him his own camera. "Thing happens to us -- hurdles pop up and road blocks appear -- and we get through them, past them, over them, around them and we work out the best of bad situations," he writes.

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