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 100 years ago, Carol Guzy, Austin Mann, the Fall Foliage Map, striking out, Internet wisdom, a contest deadline and SSD failure stats.

  • Alan Taylor presents 30 images from 1922 in 100 Years Ago in Photos. There are several worth comment but that last one we fell in love with.
  • Suzanne Sease features four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Carol Guzy's photos of The Remnants of Everyday Life in Ukraine. "Broken glass becomes a metaphor for shattered lives," Guzy writes.
  • Austin Mann returns from Scotland with his iPhone 14 Pro Camera Review. He endorses cropping, admits shooting 48-Mp is slow, was surprised how much light Action mode requires and adds a few items to his wish list.
  • The Fall Foliage Map is out showing the annual progressive changing of the leaves. We've already started raking leaves.
  • In Hit Rate Zero, Mike Johnston came back from an excursion with nothing. He confesses "it took me a very long time—years—for me to learn that sometimes you can go out and not get anything at all." But there's a silver lining. "Being out with a camera is enough, though, actually," he writes.
  • In More Strange Things Said on the Internet, Thom Hogan adds three more quotes to his ongoing series combatting amusing public inanity.
  • The deadline for submission to LensCulture's Black & White Photography Awards is .Oct 19. Winners will be included in an exhibition in London during Photo London 2023.
  • In The SSD Edition: 2022 Drive Stats Mid-Year Review, Backblaze's Andy Klein reports, "SSDs are more reliable than HDDs" based on five years of data tracking failure rates for the devices.

We're still taking our own advice from yesterday about using Firefox to get around Safari 16.0/macOS 12.6 issues (which includes unreported errors processing PHP). And we've yet to hear back from Postbox about solving its crash-at-launch problem so be patient if you're trying to reach us.... Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
