Photography attracts two kinds of people: some who are addicted to collecting equipment and others who care deeply about the process of making images. Those in the second category will love this book. It is a text that goes beyond basic shop talk about cameras, lenses and film to discuss ways to create imaginative pictures. But what distinguishes this fat volume (abridged from the Kodak Library of Creative Photography) from other how-to books is the way the contents are organized.

Oops! I almost missed it. I am referring to Patt Morrison's May 30 column. I do like many of the things you are doing with redesigning the paper, but don't overdo it by eliminating pictures of the columnists. We longtime readers have become accustomed to responding to pictures of our favorite columnists and I, for one, miss them. Keep it interesting for the people who live here. Put the pictures back. Please! Bob Brach Desert Hot Springs

Additional observations have ruled out the chance that a recently discovered asteroid, believed to be about 1,300 feet long, could hit Earth in 2029, NASA scientists said this week. Last week, asteroid 2004 MN4 had been given a small chance of hitting Earth, based on observations this month and in June. Spacewatch Observatory near Tucson found faint pictures of the asteroid in images dating to March 15.

Redondo Beach Mayor Barbara Doerr wants professional and amateur shutterbugs to go out and take pictures of the city and its people on March 20. The 10 best pictures taken that day will be entered in a contest sponsored by the U. S. Conference of Mayors and could be used in a book called "A Day in the Life of America's Cities." Doerr said that the project especially wants photos that show "an imaginative exploration of the full range of Redondo's life."
