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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Rentmeester's experimental Polaroids, manufactured opportunities, light signatures and Viticci on Dropbox Carousel.

  • In A Life Photographer's Gorgeous Early Polaroids, Co Rentmeester experimented with a Polaroid SX-70 in 1972 before it hit the shelves.
  • Strobist David Hobby muses On Manufactured Opportunities, admitting, "But going from the practice of competing for pre-existing opportunities to one of manufacturing your own is definitely a hurdle. It's not a default mindset for many people, which means it is something you have to get past. It's more entrepreneurial than what we are used to as photographers."
  • Rose Eveleth challenges you to identify which city you're looking at from their Light Signature alone.
  • Federico Viticci has published Thoughts On Dropbox Carousel, a pretty thorough look at the new service. We've updated our story with the link as well (as the + in the headline indicates).

More to come...
