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 Jeanette Spicer, Robert Gumperts, Yasuto Inagaki, Jefferson Graham, a free bokeh action, Apple silicon explained, a white pen tablet and meaning.

  • In An Alternative Idea of Intimacy, Magali Duzant interviews New York-based photographer Jeanette Spicer about her portraits of friends and family. "I like to have an established relationship with the people I'm photographing because what I'm really interested in is seeing people in alternatively intimate ways," Spicer says.
  • In 'Nobody Asks, Are You Feeling OK?' Mee-Lai Stone features black-and-white images from Robert Gumperts' new book Division Street about the homeless.
  • In A Magnificent Rock Formation Set Against the Tateyama Mountains, Grace Ebert showcases a photo series by Yasuto Inagaki. "The first time I encountered a miraculous scene like this one," he says," the city was covered in fog and the moon was shining brightly on the Tateyama Mountain Range."
  • Jefferson Graham shot Route 66 for his upcoming KelbyOne course and tells you all about it accompanied by a few choice images.
  • SparkleStock has released A Free Bokeh Action for Photoshop to add glow, glitter and drama to photos in just a few steps illustrated in the accompanying article.
  • In M1 Pro Max vs. M2 -- Buy Now or Wait?, Rene Ritchie clarifies the differences between Apple's M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max and speculates on hw an M2 chip would differ based on the company's iPhone chip development:
  • A bundled version of the Xencelabs Pen Tablet Medium and Quick Keys will be available tomorrow in a Nebula White finish for $379.99.
  • In The Roots of Meaning, Andrew Molitor reflects on how we turn "glib nonsense" into something we defend to the death.

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