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 Robert Frank, Margaret Mitchell, Chrystofer Davis, image sensors, archiving and subscriptions.

  • In A Portrait of America That Still Haunts, Decades Later, Arthur Lubow takes a close look at the elements of Robert Frank's Trolley -- New Orleans.
  • Photojournalist Margaret Mitchell follows Michael Helping Edinburgh's Homeless. "Since the start of the lockdown, Michael has walked the streets of Edinburgh with a bag of supplies, offering food, support and advice to those who cross his path."
  • Moments That Matter presents Bajan-American photographer Chrystofer Davis's images of civil unrest. "I go into a demonstration to find those individuals who need their voices heard in desperate and intense times," he says.
  • Thom Hogan asks, What's the Holy Grail Image Sensor? And lists seven defining characteristics. "The ultimate problem with image sensors for cameras, though, isn't any of the above," he admits, "it's production volume."
  • Derrick Story has just released his course Organizing and Archiving Digital Photos on LinkedIn Learning/
  • Scott Kelby explains Why Adobe Was Right to Go to a Subscription Model by showing what the alternative looks like. "Subscription plans provide us with way to use to software that we couldn't make a reasonable financial case for using and I'm all for that," he says. And if you don't feel the same way, there's always Elements.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
