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 Ukrainian Independence Day, Lora Webb Nichols, MultiNerf, the Canon FTb QL and black-and-white editorial images.

  • Kirk Tuck had to buy a Canon FTb QL to get the 50mm lens he craved. He looks into shooting film with the Canon again but is put off by the $25 a roll cost. And besides, "It was fun back then because I didn't know any better but from my perch here in the future I can only feel pity for the photographers of that age"
  • In The Grifter in Chief's Dangerous Gambit (gift link), Michelle Cottle argues, "The G.O.P. may fancy itself the party of law and order, but Trump has endeavored to redefine which laws matter and what kind of order is legitimate." That subversion is echoed in the images accompanied the piece and that's what struck us. From a variety of sources, they are all rendered in black and white, reducing the red, white and blue of the flag to monotones. It's jarring but it reinforces her point. It's not America without respect for the law.

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