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 grandkids, the lotus, the Fujifilm GFX50S II, finding work and cycling up Marin.

  • Mike Johnston's Baker's Dozen: Grandkids is not all about the kids. It's all about the arc of life and particularly the descent and disappearance of our loved ones.
  • In Live Long and Prosper, Harold Davis shoots straight into a lovely Lotus Flower. "An astounding thing about the Lotus is how long the seeds can survive and still be viable, in some documented cases over 1,000 years," he writes. "That's why the Lotus has become a symbol of longevity."
  • Kirk Tuck finds it A Struggle to Throw Stuff Away even when it doesn't work any more. That, somehow, is a prelude to his thoughts on the new Fujifilm GFX50S II, which he compares to his Leica SL2.
  • How Do You Actually Find Work? one Reddit poster asks and gets a textbook answer to start the ball rolling.
  • Douglas Zimmerman shot a series of images of Noah Frank Cycling Up the Bay Area's Toughest, Trickiest Climb (or trying to). We don't even like driving up Marin Ave. to Grizzly Peak in Berkeley. Not to mention down. Last time we did it, we had a van full of sisters-in-law on the way to a wedding and we didn't broach the summit before they were all giggling giddily from what we assumed was the lack of oxygen.

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