KTVU in Oakland is reporting that a Bay Area woman named Mariam l. Walton has come forward with apparently solid proof that the photographs were not taken by Ansel Adams but her Uncle Earl. She was watching KTVU report on the story Tuesday when she suddenly saw a photograph of the Jeffrey Pine on Sentinal Dome and recognized it as a print her uncle Earl Brooks made back in 1923.
American vacationers John and Patti Muldowney took a snapshot during a snorkeling excursion off the coast of Aruba last fall, and turned up a photo that shows what appears to be human skeletal remains.
Five years ago, 18-year-old Natalee Holloway went missing while on vacation in Aruba. Aruban authorities suspected the remains may belong to Holloway, and have renewed their search for a missing girl’s body last weekend with little luck. However, forensic experts do not think the photo is of a body at all, but might be a product of rock formations and overactive imaginations.
In any case, this mystery might have been easier to solve if the Muldowneys’ camera was equipped with a GPS capability.

Hasselblad has had a cryptic countdown displayed on their promotions page for a couple weeks now, and we’re about two weeks away from the date being counted down to. The text on the page doesn’t provide any hints:
You might have noticed a strange countdown clock on the Hasselblad website lately. You might have wondered what this rapidly running time gadget is counting towards. A countdown away from Christmas? A countdown towards the next sunny day in Scandinavia? Some unknown Hasselblad holiday? Well, “what?” indeed. All we can say is watch the space and try to be patient. Good things come to those who wait.
Any guesses as to what Hasselblad has up their sleeve? Is this simply a clever marketing stunt that hasn’t attracted all that much attention, or is there actually something big planned that we’ll find out very soon? Either way, we’ve marked the date on our calendar, and will report to you if there’s any interesting announcement.
