Before digital cameras came along, you had to set your "F stop" to the proper setting to have the right exposure for your photos. There was a saying among photojournalists: "F8 and be there."--set your camera to F8, and get to the scene ready to go. Not that much has changed, really.

Welcome to the Observer's Photo Blog

Truth be told, I wanted to be a photojournalist when I grew up.


"If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough."

"The pictures are there, and you just take them."

Frozen Waterfall II


  1. Dear The Observer,
    These are incredible! What a fun hike--I saw that it wasn't Too bad from your other blog.

    But I like these shots the best.

    Thanks for a lovely view of a private place,
    Ann T.

    I wish you could hear it as well. The sound of rushing water was quite unexpected. Thanks for looking in!
