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 Charles Brittin, Black Women Photographers, orange, an elaborate photo breakdown, Pixpa, LiveScan and Fry's.

  • In Reflections: Alex Jones on Charles Brittin, the Getty curatorial research assistant is reminded of his grandmother by a photograph of a Black woman at a 1965 civil rights protest.
  • In A Community You Should Get to Know, photographer Cidgy Bossuet introduces Black Women Photographers, a global community and online database of Black women and non-binary photographers founded by Polly Irungu. They're currently having a print sale.
  • Today it's Outrageous Orange at Harold Davis's site. This could go on for a while.
  • In How I Got the Shot -- Creating Photos Based on Digital Art, Zach Sutton tries "an elaborate photo breakdown."
  • Jason Row provides A Pixpa Review for Photographers. The gallery-style site is his favorite, although he has wandered.
  • Nik Bhatt's $9.99 LiveScan for iOS can recognize text in multiple languages from images taken with an iOS camera or displayed on a Mac screen. It requires macOS 11 and iOS/iPadOS 14. Both platforms are covered by the purchase price.
  • Blaming "changes in the retail industry and the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic," Fry's has permanently closed. We were frequenters of the Palo Alto store in the early days of our computer career and have missed to excitement of that drive south.

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