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 Alabama, florists, Kolari filters and a monochrome quiz.

  • During the pandemic Scott Baker found himself Returning, and Awakening, to the Beauty of Rural Alabama (gift link). "My work as a photographer has taken me all over the world -- to more than 25 countries and most of the American states," he writes. "Traveling has given me many things: an appreciation for disparate people and cultures, a greater capacity for tolerance and love. But perhaps its greatest gift is the way it's encouraged me to seek new perspectives, even when glancing at my own backyard."
  • Harold Davis is turning into a Florista, "creating images that look a little like a wall of flowers one might see at a florist shop."
  • Bryan Esler briefly reviews Kolari Magnetic Clip-In Filters, which magnetically attach to your mirrorless camera's sensor, staying in place when you swap lenses. "Kolari has a winner here and I'm excited to use these filters more," he writes.
  • Zach Sutton asks, Can You Tell the Difference Between the Leica M10 and Leica M10 Monochrom? And he gives you a little test with paired black-and-white images from both cameras. "I found it fairly easy to pick out which camera was which, based purely on the dynamic range and overall contrast in the images," he writes. Our piece yesterday on Popcorn Roses provides a clue, too.

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