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 the Queen's funeral, Alessandra Sanguinetti, an iPhone 14 Pro Max camera problem, Don McCullin and two lessons.

  • The BBC presents The Queen's Funeral in Pictures. The Associated Press provides an unusual peek at Mourners Wanting a Last Look at Queen's Coffin.
  • Killian Fox showcases Magnum photographer Alessandra Sanguinetti's images from her new book Some Say Ice. Sanguinetti went to Black River Falls inspired by the work of Charles Van Schaick who documented life and death in the small Wisconsin town at the end of the 19th century.
  • Alex Hern reports a Bug in iPhone 14 Pro Max Causes Camera to Physically Fail, Users Say. "Opening the camera in certain apps causes the OIS [optical image stabilization] motor to go haywire, causing audible grinding sounds and physically vibrating the entire phone," he writes. Those apps? TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram.
  • Stuart Jeffries interviews Don McCullin who "talks about his tough childhood, the film Angelina Jolie is making about him -- and the shots that still haunt his sleep." McCullin tells him, "The easiest thing in the world, you'd think, is pressing that button on the camera. It's not."
  • A Reddit poster makes A Packing Mistake with his photo gear on his way to Greece. And learns two photography lessons.

Believe it or not, Postbox support has not managed to resolve our issue with the software crashing on launch. So we've transitioned to our backup scheme to keep the wheels turning here.

And please support our efforts...
