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 Bob Wick, Jutta Fausel-Ward, Patrick Ecclesine, frames, hair, Apple and a photo story.

  • Alan Taylor presents 27 American Landscapes photographed by Bob Wick, a tribute to the photographer who has just retired after 30 years with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
  • In 186,000 Racing Photos and the Woman Who Shot Them All, Mark Vaughn tells the story of photographer Jutta Fausel-Ward on the occasion of her 80th birthday. (Mike Johnston regretted leaving it out of his recent Around the Web post, which includes the work of two modern hand-colorists.)
  • Suzanne Sease presents landscapes from the personal project of Patrick Ecclesine. "I've been posted up in Kula, Maui and living on a farm in the countryside at the base of a volcano," he writes.
  • Erin Migdol asks, What's in a Frame? We've always appreciated this physical buffer between the sacred (the art) and the profane (the wall), partly because we have a brother-in-law who is a master frame-maker. Half the fun of hanging a picture is framing it.
  • Kirk Tuck spent the day in the Rustic Spur vineyard but was enamored of this vision of High Hair. "We always wish for the "magic bullet" lens or camera but in truth we are most successful when we just work on our aim," he writes.
  • In All Your Images Are Belong to Us, Paul Melcher looks at Apple's recent decision to "proactively scan visual content on users' iPhones and uploaded to its iCloud service to detect child pornography."
  • The Last Time I Saw Steve Jobs tells the story of a father visiting the Apple campus as Jobs was leaving and asking the stranger if he'd take a photo of his family by the Apple sign. With an iPhone.

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