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 Nick Brandt, Pi Cheng Hsiu, Rick May, Douglas Dubler and software updates.

  • In Forced From Home, Nick Brandt visits five animal sanctuaries in Africa to portray the people displaced by droughts along with the animals whose existence is under threat.
  • Grace Ebert features Pi Cheng Hsiu's photographs of Elephant Slides for children in Taiwan.
  • Seattle-based photographer Rick May uses a Lecia SL2 for Sports Photography. "You really have to know both the sport and the limitations of the camera to maximize its potential," he says.
  • Dan Havlik gets the story behind Douglas Dubler's Leaping Horse Photo. "Like the Elgin Marbles, I wanted to depict the extreme musculature and emotions of the horses and their bonds with their riders," Dubler says. "So, similar to my career in the fashion industry, I chose to do tight 'beauty' shots."
  • In We Need Software Updates Forever, Mark Pesce argues manufacturers should maintain their software and firmware indefinitely. "Yes, we all want shiny new toys -- and we'll have plenty of them -- but we shouldn't build that future atop the prematurely discarded remains of our electronic past," he writes.

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