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 March for Our Lives, clouds for NASA, why it's quiet, successful photographers, a bag inventory, an egg and posting Raw files.

  • In Photos From the March for Our Lives, Alan Taylor compiles 42 images from rallies overseas and across the United States "calling for legislators to address school safety and gun violence." On the same topic, SFGate presents a gallery of "the most poignant, witty, moving signs" at the San Francisco event.
  • Alexandre Nessler says NASA Needs Your Help! "The U.S. Space Agency urges citizens around the world to take a maximum amount of cloud photos between March 15 and April 15 and send them in to allow researchers to refine research on cumulus, cirrus and cumulonimbus clouds." Includes a nice collection of cloud shots.
  • In So Why's It So Quiet? Thom Hogan blames the decline in product announcements to "making fewer cameras, but more expensive ones."
  • Ming Thein has published the first part of The Habits of Successful Photographers. Who knew it was so complicated?
  • Derrick Story reveals What's in My Bag -- March 2018 Edition. The 13 lb. backpack "will fit under the seat in front of me on an airplane, in an overhead bin on a bus, and on the floor between my feet in a restaurant."
  • Harold Davis saw an Egg and debated how to shoot it as a cup of coffee distracted him.
  • Jim Kasson explains Why I Don't Post Raws. One excellent reason is that you can't actually see a Raw file. Keep that in mind as you read his list.

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