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 Hiroshima, bombing photographers, Alfa Romeo, Srinivas Kurugant, printer ink, Lightroom tips, Google's Pixels and Nikon's Web Utility.

  • The Guardian visits Hiroshima as the city marks the 75th anniversary of the world's first atomic bombing with "downsized ceremonies due to coronavirus and the mayor urging nations to reject nationalism and unite to fight all threats."
  • In After Atomic Bombings, These Photographer Worked Under Mushroom Clouds, Mike Ives tells the story behind Flash of Light, Wall of Fire, a new book of photographs about the 1945 bombings. "I am determined to let people in this world know without speaking a word what kind of apocalyptic tragedies you have gone through," one photographer told survivors.
  • Ming Thein visited the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo. "The real treasures were the ones you didn't know about -- the lines, the curves, the detailing all speaking to a time when a lack of mass production and regulation allowed for a lot more variety," he writes.
  • In This Archive Has No Legs, Joshua Muyiwa talks to New Delhi photographer Srinivas Kurugant about his project to put his archive in the hands of others. The public would go through Kurugant's physical prints from his archive and tack them on a wall to create their own flow and become a daily photo book.
  • In Why Is Printer Ink So Freaking Expensive?, Adam Elder argues "it's the whole stupid business model of printers." And the 900 firmware updates issued from nine printer manufacturers "are to prevent the use of third-party ink." (We have to say since we put Mom on HP's Instant Ink program, she's saved a fortune.)
  • Jason Row lists 10 Handy Lightroom Classic Hacks You Need to Know.
  • Sam Byford reports Google Has Already Discontinued the Pixel 4 and 4 XL less than a year after its unveiling. The Pixel 5 and a 5G-equipped 4A are expected this fall.
  • Nikon has released a beta version of its Windows 10 Webcam Utility for its dSLR and Z series cameras connected via USB.

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