Wait … Who the Hell is Rebecca Blunt?

This weekend, Steven Soderbergh comes out of retirement with the NASCAR caper comedy Logan Lucky, with Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Hilary Swank, and Daniel Craig headlining a cast of notable names. The film — with its quirky, Coen Brothers-esque feel — looks like it’s a lot of fun, and critics agree as it currently holds a 94 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

📸 Photos of the Week: Playing With My New Camera, Holly 📸

Last week, I got myself a new toy: Holly.

Holly is a Canon EOS M3 24-megapixel mirrorless digital camera. I know, I know, that’s a mouthful. It’s also my first foray into digital photography in almost 10 years (if you don’t count iPhone photography, which, really, I do not). Up until now, I’d been shooting on film.
