Fuji Plastic Fantastic '50'

Fuji's new "plastic-fantastic" XC prime Sorry about the three Fuji posts in a row—it's not all Fuji all the time here—but if the theme is "threes" it kinda fits. I was interested to learn that Fuji will soon have a "plastic fantastic 50" of its own. You will have the choice of three 35mm (~50mm-e) primes at three distinct pricing tiers. There's the original XF 35mm ƒ/1.4 R that I've written about several times, for $600; the weather-sealed (that's B&H's term), snout-nosed XF 35mm ƒ/2 so-called...

Protein! And Other Off-Topic Topics

A friend I spoke to this morning asked if I was becoming disaffected with photography, a suspicion raised, for him, by reading my recent blog posts. No, not at all. It's that I'm preoccupied by the political situation here in the USA—but I can't write about that. Not my purview here. But that's what's going on with me. (Oh, and I'm still sick—approaching five weeks—although not suffering. Grateful for the latter.) My other distractions at the moment are pool and food. I'm playing in a pool leagu...

Valley-inspired candles ignite aroma of nostalgia … and Northridge, Pacoima and Ventura Boulevard, too

By Marianne Love, Correspondent The San Fernando Valley has been memorialized in many ways. There are museums about its history. Painting and sculptures depicting days and people gone by. But for Michelle Alvarado, it’s candles and the sights and smells that make up her fondness for the valley where she moved at two years old. Her scented candles are named after such valley icons as “Northridge CA,” a sweet orange aroma representing the citrus groves that once LDN-L-VALCANDLES-0209dominated the ...

Interview with photographer Meeno Peluce about his favorite tools

My guest this week on the Cool Tools Podcast is Meeno Peluce. Meeno grew up as a successful child actor in Hollywood, and his kid sister is Soleil Moon Frye of Punky Brewster fame. He then moved behind the camera and has spent his life photographing and filming the world around him, from the burning ghats in Varanasi to the luminous landscapes of Tinseltown. He’s a proud Papa and ask him his profession, and he’ll tell you he’s a Meeno, and all that might entail. He gave himself the name when he ...

Instagram’s $20 Billion Ad Revenue Isn’t Exactly a Shock to Marketers

It's hard to remember now, but for the first three years of its existence, Instagram was ad-free. When it finally incorporated ads, shortly after Facebook bought the photo-sharing platform for $1 billion in 2012, the language around the rollout promised users it wouldn't be too much, too soon: "We'll focus on delivering a small number...

Golden Pliers charges into 2020 with new bikes, food and drink upgrades

We’ll be seeing more Rivendell builds from Golden Pliers, like this pleasing Hunqapillar.(Photo: Golden Pliers) With all the doom-and-gloom news about local retail lately, I’m eager to share good news from the bike shop front. Golden Pliers on North Skidmore and Interstate has been a bright spot ever since they opened two years ago. For a very small shop where the owners still put in most of the hours, Golden Pliers seems to have found a workable niche. This week they announced news that will ...

Cecil Castellucci talks surprising resurrection of Plain Janes, her graphic novels about artful teen girls

In 2007, DC Comics’ teen girl-centric imprint Minx published the graphic novel “The Plain Janes” by Cecil Castellucci and artist Jim Rugg; the story concerned high school students who make art installations covertly around their small town. While a sequel hit shelves a year later, Minx ultimately folded and the series was left incomplete. That is, until now: Little, Brown Young Readers just released an omnibus edition last month, including the first two tales and one new one, “Janes Attack Back....

The Trumpet and the French Horn: Two Styles of Communication

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION requires that we know how to best communicate with others. In other words, communicate with them the way they want to be communicated to. Diana Peterson-More shares two ways people like to take in information in her very practical book Consequential Communication in Turbulent Times, direct and indirect. Communication can be direct and straightforward, which often entails using the “w” words: “What do you think? What would you like me to do? What’s your answer? Why shoul...

This Week in Photography: Reviewing “Next of Kin”

  Quick question. What’s the fastest way to make someone cry? Easy answer: encourage them to think about their loved-ones dying. Either in the present, (which is super-sad,) or deep into the indeterminate future, once they’ve grown old. Imagine saying goodbye to your life-partner, in your 80’s, after decades together, and then living your final days alone? Guaranteed waterworks. Do you doubt me? Consider the opening 2 minutes of “UP.” How quickly did you cry? Or what about that massive Google co...
