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 Shishmaref and Cizre, a tour of (most of) Adobe's mobile apps in two hours, buying lenses (selling them and regretting it, too) and fixed lens compacts.

  • Here's a pair to ponder. In Nowhere to Go Amid Alaska's Melting Ice, Rene Silverman includes 20 images in her interview with photographer Nima Taradji, who went to the Inupiat village of Shishmaref last December "to photograph how the village‚Äôs residents are coping with climate change, staying at the local high school because he said it was the only building with running water." Meanwhile, on the side of the planet, Alan Taylor presents 19 images in Kurdish Residents Return to Their Devastated City. Cizre's 130,000 residents were recently allowed to return only to discover widespread destruction from the military operations.
  • Terry White takes on a big task, highlighting Adobe's mobile apps, in a two-hour presentation that covers "Lightroom Mobile, Photoshop Fix, Premiere Clip, Adobe Comp CC, Adobe Capture CC and Photoshop Mix." He apologizes for skipping Adobe Illustrator Draw, Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Post, Adobe Slate, Adobe Voice, Adobe Preview, Behance and the Creative Cloud App.
  • In Camera Lenses: Buying, Selling, and Regret, Jason Checkla talks about the Canon glass he has known, loved and lost. And what he replaced it with. And doesn't shrink from the eternal question: Why?
  • Amy Davis lists the Best Premium Fixed Lens Compact Cameras, which holds few surprises but makes a nice counterpoint to Jeff Keller's recent search for one.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
