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 Josh Haftel, the Perseid Meteor shower, what f22 is for and Joe Saltzer.

  • Tom Hogarty interviews Josh Haftel, who has just joined Adobe's digital imaging product management team "to help drive Adobe's mobile and Web photography strategy."
  • Enjoy 48 images of the 2015 Perseid Meteor shower. The annual Perseids Meteor shower occurs when Earth passes through the Comet Swift-Tuttle's wake.
  • Ever wonder what good f22 is? In Spiral Inside the Pemaquid Lighthouse, Harold Davis shows you. Nikon, Zeiss, Adobe and Google played a role in the enchanting monochromatic image as well.
  • Mike Johnston remembers the forgotten Joe Saltzer of SaltHill Photographic Products, who died in 2008. "He had vision, and talent, and taste," Johnston writes. "If he didn't leave a large mark on photography it's because he was in the wrong business at the wrong time, and paid too dearly for the boldness of his vision."

More to come...
