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 Adobe MAX keynote, Leica '100', Canon Holiday Newsletter and the Brown Sisters.

  • Just a reminder that the Adobe MAX keynote starts at 9:30 a.m. Pacific this morning (registration required). The company said it will reveal "more exciting news," including new features in Photoshop and Lightroom during the presentation.
  • Leica is having fun. In Leica '100' (below), the company recreates a few famous photographs, claiming it took photography out of the studio (to, you know, the sunny outside where all those Brownies were getting their buttons pushed so Kodak could do the rest). Don't swallow it whole or you might think the iPhone is a Leica.
  • We know you rely on us to report significant deals, but Canon is promising to update you even sooner when you sign up for its Holiday Newsletter. Novel concept.
  • The N.Y. Times has published the lastest portrait of the Brown Sisters, a series started in 1975 by Nicholas Nixon. Author Susan Minot reflects on the series (which is included in the story), observing, "These subjects are not after attention, a rare quality in this age when everyone is not only a photographer but often his own favorite subject."

We don't usually publish a Sunday Horn but Monday is going to be busy, so we thought we'd give you a head start on the week. More to come...
