Trove Of Architectural Photos Shows When LA's Skyline Became Modern

At the dawn of the 1960s, Los Angeles lacked a true city skyline. A long-standing 13-storey height restriction, in force since 1904 and only recently repealed in 1956, had created a downtown whose only vertical accent was the 32-storey City Hall.

Olympus's Tiny OM-D E-M10 Mark II Gets An Australian Price And Release Date

A while back, I reviewed the Olympus OM-D E-M10 and came away damn near head over heels with the small, charming camera. The new Mark II version enhances nearly every aspect of the camera, but it’s still the little friend we know and love. We now know when it’ll come to Australia, and how much it’ll cost.


Photo Essay: Inside A 120-Year-Old Steam-Powered Water-Pumping Station

A small village on the left bank of the river Tisza in Hungary hides one of the best-preserved industrial relics I have ever seen. If you wander along the flood prevention dyke near the village, you’ll see an old building with an enormous brick chimney towering above the trees: this is the old Tiszabercel water pumping station, a one-of-a-kind gem from the steam age.
