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.

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

Bush Blooming

Dark leaves, white flowers, blue sky....

This tree is one of my favorites--so pretty with small white blooms against the dark leaves. I'm terrible about this--I have no idea what it is called. If you think you know, save me a Google, and leave your thoughts in the comment section.


  1. I have never seen this but it is lovely! Thank you!

  2. Ann T:
    This bush/tree is not uncommon in our metro, and seems quite hardy. I really like it. Thanks for stopping by.

How much to reveal? There are some nutty people out there! Leave it to say right now that I am well educated, a person of the Christian faith, and never without an opinion.
