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 Colby Deal, Andrew Brand, electric motorcycles, architecture and camera mods.

  • Texas Son: An Impoverished Houston Neighbourhood features images of the place Magnum photographer Colby Deal grew up from his book Beautiful, Still. published by Mack books.
  • In It's Time to Slow Down and Appreciate Nature's Tiny Marvels (gift link), Margaret Roach follows Andrew Brand and his iPhone around the garden. "His way of observing is often focused on what he calls 'the greatness in small scenes'," she writes. "Each small moment quietly reminds us not to rush on to the next garden chore or get distracted by the showy, obvious stuff. Instead: Slow down and really look."
  • Andrea Rodríguez presents Associated Press photos by Ramon Espinosa of Electric Motorcycles in Havana. There are about 300,000 of them in Cuba after fossil fuel bikes were banned from import. "Electric motorcycles are changing the urban landscape in Cuba and also creating challenges: the batteries tend to catch fire and their relative silence accompanied by driver inexperience is causing traffic accidents," she writes.
  • In Finding Drama in Architecture, Henry Q. Rinne explains, "A building's dramatic form narrates a story and I look to reveal this narrative in the buildings I photograph." With several dramatic examples, of course, and one walk-through of his Capture One workflow.
  • Kirk Tuck points out that Camera Guys Love to 'Modify' Their Cameras. He shows off a couple of mods he made to his Leica CL. "If a few bits of apparatus can make using the camera more comfortable and efficient then why not give them a try?" he asks.

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