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.

Has It Really Been Two Weeks?

So sorry to have no posts here for two weeks. It's not that I haven't been taking pictures--in fact it's an embarrassment of riches. I get to rummaging around in the digital pile looking for just the right one. All I come up with sometimes is reasons why I should not post this one or that one. In the end, I end up like this Wayside Waifs kitty; just watching. So, no more of that...


  1. Dear The Observer,
    Well, let me just find a wet noodle to lash you with.

    Art takes time, right?? And kitties like windows.

  2. Ann:

    Thanks for looking in at my photographic efforts and for commenting!

    Yes, the kitties love the window. There's a bird feeder outside now, and people walk by all the time as it's on the dog walking route. Plenty for kitties to look at!
