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 Portland, patchwork, buying a camera, a missing Hasselblad and a PhotoPXL webinar.

  • Josh Gerstein reports Judge Orders Feds in Portland Not to Use Force Against Journalists. The ruling by "U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon also declared reporters, photographers and legal observers exempt from any directives issued to the general public to disperse from areas where protests are taking place," he writes. Simon said "journalists were being targeted by the authorities and were not simply incidentally caught up in legitimate efforts to quell violence or vandalism."
  • Ming Thein's Florentine Patchwork explores "evolutionary architectural styles and weathering" that create a distinctly unique signature that we recognise as being 'of a place.'" Shot with a Nikon Z 7 and a 24-70 f4 S Nikkor.
  • Mike Johnston finally breaks down and reveals How to Buy a Camera. "Pick the lenses first," he writes. Which argues for a Micro Four Thirds body. "Anyone who can't build a personal kit of lenses out of the multitudinous offerings in Micro 4/3 isn't trying very hard," he adds. We've actually mounted everything we own on ours, thanks to adapters.
  • In Finding Gene Cernan's Missing Moon Camera, Cole Rise argues the Hasselblad is in Switzerland, not on the moon.
  • On the first anniversary of the site, Kevin Raber invites you to Meet the PhotoPXL Team Webinar on July 30 at 4 p.m. EDT. "Join Chris Sanderson, Debra Fadely-Raber, Michael Durr, Mark Segal, Jeff Schewe and me for what should be a fun time getting to know who we are and what we are all about," he writes. Registration required.

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