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 Feroz Khan, Gabor Szilasi, Mike Johnston and landscape photography books.

  • In I'll Love You Forevermore, Nikon FM2, Feroz Khan writes about his grandfather's FM2 and 50mm f.14 Nikkor, which he inherited, and the man who "saw a spark in me others have missed."
  • Gabor is "a quirky, feel-good portrait of Gabor Szilasi, the 93-year-old giant of Canadian contemporary photography, coming soon to a screen near you." It's also a lesson in how to grow old with elegance and dignity. Here's the amusing trailer:
  • In We Are Who We Are, Mike Johnston provides "my own take on 'untangling art and the morality of artists.'" The moral failings of an artist ruin his enjoyment of their work. We've always felt the best work required higher moral standards than required of, say, mowing the lawn. But even there, you've no doubt seen a better job done by the better man.
  • Rocky Nook is taking 40 percent off its Landscape Photography Books when you use the code LAND40 at checkout.

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