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 a traveling circus, the military, a used Fujifilm X-100V, Vegas dancers, Luminar AI, Lensbaby and booting an M1 externally revisited.

  • On the Run With the Travelling Circus showcases images from the 1980s captured by Clayton Anderson when he was 19 and ran away with the circus -- and his camera.
  • In Attention Servicemember Justin Herfst reviews the book of the same name by Ben Brody, who "is finally free to step outside the directives of the military and select his own images for the audience, this time to tell his story and present the war in a way he wants readers to experience it." The book, which was shortlisted for the Paris Photo-Aperture First Book Award, is now in its second edition.
  • On his way home from the dentist, Kirk Tuck buys a pristine, used Fujifilm X-100V. That evening, he takes a few shots with it downtown. "It's early times with the X-100V but I can say that I really think I like this model," he writes.
  • In Dancers, Still Kicking, Joe McNally celebrates "the resiliency of the performer and a hope for the lights on the [Las Vegas] strip to glow bright again in 2021."
  • Kevin Raber reviews Luminar AI and is impressed. "Will it change post-processing?" he wonders. "We have to make choices about how far we are willing to take things and if we really want to change skies, add the moon, planets, the Milky Way, fireworks, birds and so forth," he writes. Ah, choices.
  • Lensbaby is having a Holiday Sale with significant discounts on its current lineup. Like $400 for the $600 Velvet 85.
  • Howard Oakley solves the riddle of Booting an M1 Mac From an External Disk.

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