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 flooding in Germany and Belgium, Mike Disfarmer's photographs, Harold Davis, night photography and the Fujifilm X-H1.

  • The Guardian presents images of the Aftermath of Germany and Belgium Floods. With over 100 confirmed dead and hundreds missing, search and rescue operations are continuing.
  • In Who Owns Mike Disfarmer's Photographs?, Eren Orbey reports on the tangled legacy of a photographer who had operated a portrait studio during the first half of the twentieth century, charging clients two quarters for a trio of postcard-size prints.
  • In The Windows on the Beast, Harold Davis amuses himself on a long bus ride by, what else, taking photos out the window. He used his iPhone and the Slow Shutter Cam app with the shutter speed set to 2 seconds for a dreamy look.
  • In this 1:18 video night photography tutorial, Liam Man shows how to Combine Two Photos using Photoshop. (And some people don't think editing is fun.)
  • Mike Johnston confesses Why I Don't Love the X-H1. "You can't force it," he writes. "I've tried." But he's not selling. "I need a capable body for the lenses I have and it's a good camera for specific tasks."

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