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 Ray Collins, the Fountain Inn, Harold Davis, Kirk Tuck reading the manual, a confrontation and DALL-E.

  • Grace Ebert features dramatic images of The Ocean by Australian photographer Ray Collins. "I'm fortunate that my subject, the ocean, is never the same," he says. "There are always new emotions and feelings to capture."
  • Joe McNally was Flipping Not Clicking as he photographed the Fountain Inn built in 1740 and recently restored. He partnered with Printique to create a coffee table book for the inn.
  • Harold Davis shares tow images from his recent trip to Maine and Colorado. One monochrome, one color.
  • Kirk Tuck received his two Godox Lux Senior flash units and describes the Fun, Cheap Flash. He read the manual in five minutes.
  • In the Reddit post Attacked for Making Photographs In Times Square, a photographer is confronted by a street vendor and is grateful he had his camera strapped to him. But the intriguing part of this post isn't his recommendation to strap your camera (seconded here) but the reaction by readers. It fairly well describes the world we live in now from a variety of perspectives, something as handy as a strap when you go out there with a camera.
  • DALL-E is now open to everyone. Just sign up and you can use it immediately to make pictures from text descriptions. "It's hard to overstate just how much this groundbreaking technology has rocked our whole industry," Adobe's John Nack commented in his blog.

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