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. This time we look at the Ancient Silk Road, the Real Hollywood, lighting a stage, QT Luong, After Supper Visions and the iPhone X's lens switching.

  • In A Photo Trip Along the Ancient Silk Road, Alan Taylor invites you "to come along through the Gobi Desert, past the Flaming Mountains, the Singing Sands, the City of Screams and other ancient and modern artifacts -- and many spectacular vistas -- along the main branches of this ancient trade route."
  • Or you can visit The Real Hollywood, Without the Glamour, courtesy of Kwasi Boyd-Bouldin and his The Los Angeles Recordings. "The unembellished, straightforward nature of the photographs reflect the understated beauty of the neighborhoods being documented," he says of the project.
  • Joe McNally is Shooting Onstage and taking "a ride into the valley of the gels" to overcome the neutral setting.
  • Harold Davis interviews QT Luong about his Treasured Lands project for the national parks. "If we care enough about our public lands, the current government policies, which are worrying in many ways, can be reversed after new elections," he says.
  • In After Supper Visions, Terri Stone describes a group of people who, after meeting or their Tuesday meal, learn about lighting, composition and other photography essentials before putting their knowledge into practice using cameras supplied by the After Supper Visions program.
  • Dan Provost calculates the iPhone X requires "two fewer stops of light before switching" compared to the 7 Plus in Dual Lens Switching on iPhone X.

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

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