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 Charlotta Hauksdóttir, 4,400 wildlife photographers, a corn poppy, Fernando Santos, M1 floating-point arithmetic and a one-day Rocky Nook discount.

  • In A Sense of Place, Magali Duzant interviews Charlotta Hauksdóttir about her fingerprint cutout prints overlaying other images that represent her native Iceland. "Since I started working with this fingerprint pattern, I see that it is in everything around us," she says. "In Iceland there were rocks with these patterns in them. It's amazing how visible they are in nature."
  • Ellyn Kail reports 4,400 Photographers Donate Over 25,000 Images to Support Wildlife. And she highlights a few of them from a partnership between Pexels, a free stock photo and video community and International Fund for Animal Welfare, a global non-profit helping animals and people from over 40 countries.
  • After taking a tea break, Harold Davis photographed this Corn Poppy as an afterthought.
  • In Life and Inspiration of an Incarcerated Photographer, Fernando Santos writes about some pandemic portraits he was able to make when his usual travel and landscape photography was impossible to pursue.
  • In Can You Trust Floating-Point Arithmetic on Apple Silicon? Howard Oakley runs some tests by looking at "some well-known calculations which are generally performed incorrectly." The M1 duplicates Intel's errors, he finds, which suggests image editing operations are reliable on the new platform.
  • Rocky Nook is celebrating Earth Day with a 50 percent discount when you use the code EARTH21 at checkout.

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