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 Lynsey Addario, Ben Long, Harvey Stearn, Trexo Wheels, screen scaling and a macOS scanner bug.

  • In The Taliban's Return Is Catastrophic for Women, photojournalist Lynsey Addario writes, "I've seen how hard the country's women have fought for their freedom and how much they have gained. Now they stand to lose everything."
  • Ben Long has published The Practicing Photographer, a collection of essays on "developing your photographic practice." The 124-page printed book is also available as an ebook in ePub, PDF and Kindle formats. The essay Why Practice? is available as a free sample.
  • Harvey Stearn discusses the "supposedly opposed philosophies" of representation and expression in Landscape Image Editing.
  • The Kickstarter project Trexo Wheels is a table-top dolly controlled by onboard buttons or a smartphone app. It memorizes a route you physically teach it and with its turntable kit can be mounted on a tripod for panoramas.
  • Jim Kasson looks at Browser and OS Scaling in Windows, which is not as simple as he assumed.
  • Apple promises to address the -21345 permissions error when Using a Scanner on Mac from within Image Capture, Preview or Printers & Scanners preferences. The bug, reported last year, affects MacOS 11 Big Sur and possibly macOS 10.15 Catalina.

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