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 Cédric Roux, the Leica Nocticron 42.5mm, the state of the art, more on the Leica M10 Reporter, the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Cecilia and Marina Williams.

  • For Cédric Roux, My Wonderland is New York City. "I like to capture the happy incident when everything falls into place naturally, but also the little things in life, simple, without looking for complex compositions, just life," he says. And he found just the place to do it.
  • Kirk Tuck reports on his Fun Sunday Morning with a generous sampling of his adventure with the Panasonic/Leica Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 lens on his GH6.
  • In Technology Versus the Customer, Thom Hogan sees a conflict between what's possible and what's desirable. "The problem with not solving new customer problems and with not seeing what the customer needs five to ten years out is that you just sell a box that's another in a long series of such boxes with little differentiation and the marketing (push) needed to sell each new iteration gets tougher," he writes.
  • Mike Johnston continues his ongoing evaluation with The Downsides of the Leica M10 Reporter. Cost, no autofocus, no EVF, no image stabilization, handling and weight.
  • Harold Davis shares a few images of the Spine of the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Cecilia in Albi, France. "The surprise is the lavish and beautiful interior of the church, decorated largely with abstract painting," he writes. They don't make 'em like that any more.
  • Create Captivating Self-Portraits With Marina Williams shows the self-=portraitist being funky and fun in Salt Lake City. The video follows her from props to post using Lightroom.

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