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 Laforet on Storehouse, Texas court upholds public photography, flush mount albums from Adorama and a new Ricoh Theta.

  • Storehouse has made another fan. Vincent Laforet explains why it could be a very big deal for storytellers. "I can honestly say that I'm not sure that I've ever found the act of sharing stories with others as easy and exciting as I have with Storehouse," he writes. You can see what he's done with it, too.
  • Carolyn Wright reports the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has struck down a section of the state's penal code that prohibited photos of people in public without their consent. In the prior case, the court expressed "its incredulity that reasonable suspicion could arise from taking photographs in a public place."
  • AdoramaPix, Adorama's in-house lab, now offers Hudson premium flush mount albums, whose every page spread lies completely flat with no gutter to separate the pages, creating a seamless view from edge to edge. Hudson albums are available from 6x6 to 12x15 with options to add gilded edges, genuine leather or leather-lux covers in various colors, rounded corners, and text and title debossing.
  • Ricoh has announced a new version of its $299.95 Theta, a 360-degree spherical camera, with video capabiilty and new body colors. The company will also provide a software development kit for it, which will be available at when the new Theta ships in November.
