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 9/11 photography, Astronomy Photographer of the Year, the Fall Foliation Predication Map, that video of San Francisco, 3,000 cameras, meteor showers, an eBay sale and ovens.

  • Steven Brocklehurst tells the story of The Man Who Owned 3,000 Cameras. Neville "Jim" Matthew retired to East Neuk village of St. Monans after a career that took him around the world bought the former Salvation Army hall to exhibit the collection. Three years after his death his wife Dorothy is working with a charitable trust to transfer ownership of the building and the collection and turn it into a museum.
  • Dahlia Ambrose explains How to Photograph a Meteor Shower. "We have more meteor showers coming up this year -- Orionids in October, Leonids in November and the Geminids in December," she writes.
  • Carolyn Wright is cleaning out Some Camera Gear on eBay, among other things.
  • OK, had to laugh. Jacob Turner suggests If Cooking Youtube Was Like Photography Youtube It Would Be Mostly Oven Reviews. And the videos for enthusiasts would dip into pots and pans, no doubt.

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