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 Gaza, Daniel Jackson, color, a lighthouse, Google Photos vs. Apple Photos and Nature Photography Day.

  • Alan Taylor presents 30 photos of the Chaos and Bloodshed in Gaza marking "a confluence of events, including the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, (moved from Tel Aviv after President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel) and the upcoming 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the nakba or 'catastrophe,' the day thousands were driven from their homes in 1948."
  • In 'Portraits of Resilience' Destigmatize Depression at One of the World's Top Universities, Jeffrey Brown talks to MIT professor Daniel Jackson his book unmasking mental health issues among students. "I hoped to capture the personality and charisma of the person that I was interviewing, the strength and the vulnerability," Jackson says.
  • Mike Johnston has posted the second part of his It Must Be Color gallery of reader images. These are subtle, he points out. Especially one.
  • "This is a fairly technical image," Harold Davis says of his Lighthouse on the Hill. He isn't kidding. From sets of in-camera multiple exposures to double processing in Camera Raw to stacking elements, nothing was simple.
  • Om Malik has Some Thoughts on Google Photos vs. Apple Photos. "The improvements in Google Photos and lack of magic in Apple Photos sometimes make me wonder if I made the right choice by buying to Apple's ecosystem and its ideology around software, data and privacy," he writes. OTOH, John Guber observes, "Google has a history of making product announcements that they claim are imminent but aren't." You know, like this.
  • Nature Photography Day is June 15. The North American Nature Photography Association invented this celebration in 2006 and "encourages people everywhere to enjoy the day by using a camera to explore the natural world."

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