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 forsythia in the metro got together with a meeting Monday morning and decided it was time to bloom. Consequently, there are bushy cascades of yellow all over town. These happen to be mine.

It wasn't long ago that there was snow in these branches! Link here at South Kansas City Observer.


  1. Just Gorgeous! None of my forsythia pix turned out.

  2. Ann T:
    Hard to believe the quickness of the bloom: one day, sticks, next day, flowers.

    Thanks for stopping by
