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 images of Miles Davis boxing, how Photos handles metadata, a Think Tank Photo deal and an alternative to cloud-based computing.

  • The Leica Blog highlights A Day in the Life of Miles Davis, Glen Craig's images of the jazz musician working out at the gym, boxing. "Miles used the boxing to gain strength and discipline and, more importantly, wind and diaphragm control," Craig explains. His images are on exhibit at the Leica Gallery in Los Angeles through May 11.
  • Apple has posted How Photos handles content and metadata from iPhoto and Aperture. One point worth highlighting: "Some IPTC metadata, including Copyright, won't appear in Photos, but is still associated with the image and can be seen in iPhoto, Aperture, and other applications that display IPTC metadata."
  • To celebrate their 10-year anniversary, Think Tank Photo is including a free Shoulder Harness V2.0 backpack harness when you buy an Urban Disguise Shoulder bag. When you order the Urban Disguise bag, download and submit the online form.
  • There's the cloud. Then there's Centuries of Italian History Are Unearthed in Quest to Fix Toilet, in which Jim Yardley explores the other direction with photos by Davide Monteleone.

More to come...
