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 Marcia Bricker Halperin, the Panasonic G85, photographing property, a bokeh simulator and Hubert L. Dreyfus.

  • David Gonzalez presents 18 of Marcia Bricker Halperin's nostalgic images with In New York's Automats, a Cup of Coffee and Community. The attraction? "I went through the revolving door, took my ticket from the man and this huge, light-filled space opened up with all these faces," she explains.
  • Kirk Tuck picks The Panasonic G85 as his choice for an all around fun camera under $1,000. And a better deal than similar offerings from Olympus and Sony.
  • Ross Willsher offers his Top Tips for Photographing Property.
  • Jim Kasson is busy Building a Bokeh Simulator in software. And there's more to explore in the comments.
  • We note the passing of Hubert L. Dreyfus, the philosophy professor who insisted at the dawn of the computer age that "human beings were different than machines." And lived long enough to see his opponents concede.

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