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 an Arabian Disneyland, Christian Feichtner, a carry-on backpack and dealing with Lightroom warnings.

  • In Staging the Egyptian Harem for Western Eyes, Felix Thurlemann tells how, researching Egyptian scenes photographed in the 19th century, he "discovered that one object is surprisingly often represented: a latticed wooden screen the Egyptians call mashrabiyah." The very same one, in fact. I was used as a prop to create an Arabian Disneyland whose images would appeal to tourists.
  • Andy Butler finds out How Christian Feichtner Photographed Chernobyl & Other Abandoned Places With His iPhone. His desire to travel light convinced Feichtner to dump his dSLR and laptop in favor of his iPhone, Moment wide angle lens, Gorillapod and a few apps to capture decaying buildings.
  • Kirk Tuck bought A New Backpack for carry-on air travel. The $69 bargain "is nicely padded and has velcro-equipped dividers inside that are easily reconfigurable." And it's smaller than what he was using.
  • If you hit the Panic button when Lightroom tosses up one of its warnings, Julianne Kost's Deleting Synced Photos From Collections in Lightroom will reassure you. She shows what the options are in this case, how to set a default (in any case) and how to reset the warning if you want to start over.

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