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 El Sobrante, Jens Umbach, Amanda Lucidon, pixel shift facts and the Getty Images Instagram Grant recipients.

  • Eric Nagourney presents several of Tim Archibald's Quirky Photos of Small Town Halloween. Archibald's El Sobrante neighbors are "not doing it to be photographed," he says, but that didn't stop him.
  • Faces of Conflict presents portraits taken in Afghanistan by German-born New York-based photographer Jens Umbach. Umback captured both German soldiers who were part of the International Security Assistance Force and Afghan locals. The series "reflects a more personal approach than that of classic photojournalism, offering a humanized view of the subjects and subtly alluding to the universal experience of war."
  • in Previously Unseen Photos of Michelle Obama Illuminate 'Chasing Light', Michel Martin talks to Amanda Lucidon about her new book Chasing Light. On Michelle Obama, she says, "Just to see her invite so many people in the White House that didn't think they belong there (myself included, you know?) and be able to give that experience to them and then allow them to see the light inside themselves -- I mean, that was just amazing, every single day, to witness that."
  • In Pixel Shift Facts, Lloyd Chambers details the good and bad about the technology he wrote about in his Pentax K-1 review and that is also featured, in some variant, in the new Sony a7R III.
  • In Prize-Winning Photos Show a Different Side of Instagram, Maanvi Singh presents images from the three Getty Images Instagram Grant recipients who "won $10,000 each for using Instagram as a platform to highlight stories of underrepresented people around the world."

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for the American Health Care from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

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