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 shopping mall, the week in pictures, the new Leica M6, Phocus and OpenWalls.

  • Phillip Buehler photographs The Death of the American Shopping Mall. One in four of the 1,000 malls will close in the next few years, he writes. An exhibition of his images of a New Jersy mall's demolition called Malls of America is now on display at Footnote in Gowanus, Brooklyn, until Nov. 18.
  • Associated Press photo editor Eloy Martin in Madrid curated this week's Week in Pictures.
  • Mike Johnston does the math (adjusting for inflation) on the 2022 Leica M6 Price, pointing out it's "virtually the same as it was in 1992." He bought a used M6 then but switch to an Olympus OM-4T, which was less money hanging from his neck. He recommends an Olympus OM-2S for film shooters now and even links to a "reputable repair-person," John Hermanson of Camtech Photo Services, whose day job is a lens technician with Tamron. In Leica Re-Introduces the M6, Johnston yesterday listed five bullet points on the new M6.
  • Jim Kasson recommends, If You're Going to Use Phocus, WB There. "When we white balance in Phocus, we get more accurate color. White balancing again in Lightroom doesn't help," he writes.
  • OpenWalls is open for entires with the theme of "Truth." Fifty winning images and two bodies of work will be selected to feature in the OpenWalls group show, held at Galerie Huit Arles in the summer.

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