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 family photos, astronomy pictures, journals, CFExpress Type B cards and the M2 MacBook Air.

  • The Secret Art of the Family Photo is Mike Johnston's second piece for The New Yorker. "Find ways to photograph whatever is closest to your heart," he writes. "What better subject is there, in the end?"
  • Joshua Sokol dewcribes The Lonely Work of Picking the Universe's Best Astronomy Pictures (gift link) with images by Michael McCoy. Before seeing the Webb telescope transmissions "even veteran astronomers had little idea what to expect of the images it would yield," he writes. "Much of that is because the Webb operates in infrared wavelengths." In addition to composition issues, astronomers had to color the images. Talk about post processing.
  • Suzanne Sease features Jim Wright's personal project Journals. "What began some years ago as a way to explain to my family exactly what I did for a living has turned into a lifelong project that now involves meditation, writing, painting, photographs, clip art and at times a "pop art" documentation of my journey through life," he says.
  • Lloyd Chambers tests two CFExpress Type B Camera Cards, the OWC Atlas Pro and OWC Atlas Pro Ultra, which, he reports, "are oriented toward 8K video capture, but can be used for anything else in cameras that support them."
  • In his M2 MacBook Air Review: A New Era, Jason Snell spells out why this laptop may become "the definitive Mac of this decade." And why, nevertheless, it isn't a Pro.

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