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 micrometeorites, Confederate monuments, the TTArtisans 50mm f1.4, multiple exposure, Catherine Opie and migrating to a new Mac.

  • Grace Ebert presents the Minuscule Cosmic Particles photographed by Oslo-based photographer Jon Larsen, who finds them on rooftops and rain gutters. Larsen works in the geosciences department of the University of Oslo so he knows what to look for. Jewels of another universe, in short. Bling from beyond.
  • Melissa Lyttle documents the sad afterlife of Confederate Monuments in "the maintenance yards, cemeteries and shipping containers where many of the memorials to white supremacy ended up."
  • Kirk Tuck writes a "sardonic review" of the $235 TTArtisans 50mm f1.4 for the L mount (among other things he pokes fun at). "I liked the lens a lot," he reports unsardonically.
  • Dahlia Ambrose lists 21 Creative Multiple Exposure Photographs and they aren't even "happy accidents," Bob. If your camera doesn't provide a multiple exposure mode, you can always do it in software.
  • The International Center of Photography will present its 10th annual Spotlights benefit, celebrating internationally-acclaimed Los Angeles artist Catherine Opie at an in-person reception and interview program on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 12 p.m. The program will also be streamed live on ICP's YouTube channel at 12:30 p.m.
  • Howard Oakley offers some advice about Migrating to a New Mac. In addition to waiting until the operating system has been updated to the current release, he provides a suggested migration sequence and a good reason not to use Carbon Copy Cloner (because the tool itself recommends otherwise).

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