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."

A bouquet of dipsticks on display at the auto show.


  1. Dear The Observer,
    These are the nicest dipsticks I've ever seen. I keep running into the kind that want something for nothing and are loud about it.
