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.

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."

Pink Flower

These don't last long but they are a pretty pink. The Color is not quite done justice here.


  1. Dear T.O.
    Oh! I'm going to ask--if you know--what are they?
    The more flowers I see, the less I know!

  2. Ann T:
    I know nothing. They were here when I got here.

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.
