We've just archived Volume 10, Number 6 of Photo Corners on the Archive page with 22 Features, 18 commented News stories, 25 Editor's Notes (which included 165 items of interest), two reviews and five site notes for a total of 72 stories.

Included in that tally were 31 stories with 152 images, one new holiday, seven stories with gear specifications and three obituaries.

That's down from 84 stories last June when we published 14 more news stories. In 2019, we published 86 stories with 20 more news stories than this year. An ominous trend, perhaps.

OUR READERSHIP STATS show visits hit a high over the last 12 months (which is far back as our current report shows) with nearly three million pages delivered.

In addition to five Around The Horn columns in the top ten, both reviews (Test Drive: Nik Collection 4 and Test Drive: Avalanche Unlimited) made the list as well as two news stories on lenses (the Nikkor Z micros and the Lumix 50mm). The other story in the top ten was the matinee about Nik Duncan.

All of those appeared early in the month. More recent stories eventually get just as much readership, we've found.

IT'S UNPRECEDENTED to have four Site Tweaks in a month but we're always trying to improve things around here. And sometimes, we actually do.

The list of improvements this month included:

With the Delta variant of Covid-19 surging, we're still not updating the Calendar page with current exhibitions. We regret that but the unvaccinated and unmasked have made the situation dangerous for everyone.

Vaccination prevents hospitalization and death even from the Delta variant. But it doesn't prevent infection. While the risk of infection remains a factor, we'll continue to suspend listings until it's safe for everyone to attend exhibitions.

We hope that day is dawning.
