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 a festival of twins, snow, a haunted house, light falloff and the Norton problem.

  • You're not seeing double, it's just the Igbo-Ora Festival of Twins. Sunday Alamba and Chinedu Asadu cover the annual celebration, now 12 years old, for the Associated Press.
  • In 'The Snow Makes the Cityscape So Flawless', Grace Holliday talks to Coco Kiu above his iPhone 6 photo A Storm Day, shot in 2015 from the Michigan Avenue Bridge.
  • Photographer Briscoe Park shows How to Photograph a Haunted House and even provides as free haunted house preset for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
  • Jim Kasson examines Hasselblad XCD 38, Fuji GF 45 Light Falloff. "The XCD 38 has substantially more light falloff than the GF 45," he writes. "When Lightroom gets lens corrections for the XCD 38, you won't see the falloff. So why should you care? The reason is that when this sort of vignetting is corrected in software, you loose dynamic range off axis."
  • Mike Johnston addresses The Norton Problem his site, The Online Photographer, has been afflicted by recently. He notes that despite Norton warnings that the site is not safe both Google's Safe Browsing report and Norton's own Safe Web report give it a clean bill of health. Just for laughs, we ran Photo Corners through Google's test this morning and got the same green checkmark as The Online Photographer. In case you were wondering.

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