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 year in pictures, Quentin Bruno, wedding photography with a small camera and backing up Apple Photos libraries.

  • The Year in Pictures 2017 is curated month after month by Amanda Hess "We can still clip out newspaper images we want to remember and press them in albums," she admits. "But today, while every photograph we have ever seen feels instantly accessible at any moment, we also rarely recall them. To pause and look back is a revelation."
  • In Christmas Returns to a City Liberated From ISIS, David Gonzalez interviews photographer Quentin Bruno about documenting the retaking of the Iraqi city of Qaraqosh, the country's largest Christian enclave. With 14 photos showing the city being decorated for the holidays.
  • Can you use a Micro Four Thirds camera for wedding photography? Robin Wong says yes in Micro Four Thirds and Wedding Photography. And we've done it ourselves, come to think of it.
  • In Why Are There Problems Backing Up Photos Libraries?, Howard Oakley examines a conflict between Apple Photos libraries stored on external drive and Time Machine on High Sierra. "With the problem apparently confined to High Sierra and not troubling Sierra, it is most likely an issue with Apple's new file system, APFS or Time Machine in High Sierra or its new version of Photos," he suspects.

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