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 Sidney Poitier, Daniel Ribar, Pedernales Falls, the Insta360 OneX2 and a giveaway.

  • The Guardian honors Sidney Poitier in A Life in Pictures, a set of publicity stills from his long career. The pioneering actor has passed away at 94. "Poitier, who took on many challenging and groundbreaking roles, was the first Black person to receive a best actor Oscar," the editors note.
  • Stephanie Wade explains that Some Things Last a Long Time is an ode to a lost friend of Detroit-based photographer Daniel Ribar. "It is a beautiful and sincere portrayal of the loneliness and confusion that comes with this profound experience, where landscapes and portraits become a powerful allegory," she writes.
  • Kirk Tuck takes his Leica CL to Pedernales Falls State Park Bingo where "it was wonderfully lonely." He was accompanied only by an old Tiltall monopod with a chrome Leica ballhead, which has a story of its own.
  • In Life in 360, PhotoPXL's Michael Durr discusses how he's integrated the Insta360 OneX2 into his workflow. He suggests "this camera has benefits that many might not realize."
  • Blue Ridge Outdoors is holding a New Year Gear Giveaway worth $3,000 in gear from nine partners, including Think Tank Photo.

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