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 Kevin Raber, Diana Markosian, Chris Suspect, Apple ProRaw, Mobile by Peak Design and Roger Cicala.

  • In Sunday Drive, Kevin Raber resumes his monthly photographic excursion with his wife. "Our goal was to get on back roads and explore and see what we would find," he writes. He had a lot of fun and we get to see the shots.
  • In My Mum Was a Mail-Order Bride, Tim Adams showcases Santa Barbara, the personal project of Diana Markosian, in which she recreated scenes from her uprooted childhood, using actors and a storyline from the soap opera's original scriptwriter. "My mother was very much a part of the project as I was making it," she says.
  • In Old Customs, Chris Suspect shoots on a beach at Vama Veche along the Romanian coast. So you can't call it "street" photography. "I was curious about the first generation of Romanians who did not have personal experience of what it was like to live under the rule of Nicolae Ceausescu's Communist state," he says.
  • In Apple ProRaw: the Best of Both Worlds, Derrick Story explains why he's "very enthusiastic" about the new format. "Imagine having ProRaw on your favorite digital camera?" he writes. "That would be sweet."
  • Mobile by Peak Design is the company's latest Kickstarter campaign, which is how it funds all of its development. Mobile is a case-mounting solution for smartphone accessories that include car mounts, charging stands, wall mounts, tripods, bike mounts and more.
  • In 'Who Am I and What Am I Doing Here?', Roger Cicala introduces himself as a new columnist at DPReview. He played a similar role at Imagine Resource years ago after writing a particularly humorous piece for LensRentals but the gig was short-lived.

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