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 Euro 2020 fans, Caesar Lima, rain, the Lightograph, Fujifilm GF short primes and backing up.

  • Alan Taylor presents 28 photos of The Fans of Euro 2020. Sunday, London's Wembly Stadium will host the final between Italy and England, the last of the 51 matches among 24 national teams playing in 11 different host cities.
  • Suzanne Sease presents Unusual Beauty Project, Caesar Lima's portraits of people with "rare skin conditions, such as Congenital melanocytic nevi or CMV, which involves visibly pigmented proliferations on the skin and Vitiligo, discolorations on the skin caused by depigmentation."
  • Kirk Tuck presents quite a few more monochrome images from his Walk in the Rain. Click on one to open it as a slide show.
  • Jeremy Cowart has invented the Lightograph, a still image in which the tone and color shift. "It can show the hero and villain side of a person in the same portrait with a simple shift of light," he says.
  • In Comparing the Fujifilm GF Short Primes, Jim Kasson looks at the performance of the 23mm, 30mm, 45mm, 50mm and 63mm primes. All in three nice and tidy graphs.
  • In You're Not Backing Up Enough, Jason Snell describes his own approach to protecting his irreplaceable data. "However much you're backing up your Mac, you're probably not backing it up enough," he writes. We wrote our Mirror Mirror Macro just to make it more fun and we use it almost as frequently as we save files. So, you know, we're backing up enough now.

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