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 firefighters in Portugal, still life tips, Andrew Molitor, Ventura and Bacchi's Inn.

  • In When the Wind Turbine Met the Wildfire, Michael Shaw and Cara Finnegan examine an Environmental Protection Agency photo showing firefighters in Portugal that prompts the viewer to reflect on the clash between two climate futures:

  • Mila Pinchev divulges a few tips in Still Life Photography in Five Steps. One we particularly practice: "Any one session can take several hours before you even start post processing. So don't dismantle the set until you are happy with the result or the final image."
  • Should You Upgrade to Ventura Early, Then? Howard Oakley asks. "There's just one snag that might cause the occasional unexpected glitch: Ventura is more thorough in its checking of code signatures, performing the same thorough check at launch that used only to be performed on first run," he writes.
  • In A Note on Photographs and Modernity, Andrew Molitor wonders "if there were any studies about the role photography plays in the everyday lives of people of various political stripes."
  • After 90 Years, One of Lake Tahoe's Oldest Restaurants Closes Without Fanfare, Andrew Pridgen writes in a warmly sentimental piece with historical photos of "the fabled and beloved family-style Italian restaurant Bacchi's Inn."

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