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."

Temporarily Displaced

Geese, finding their water turbulent, walk on a nearby lawn during the recent flooding at Indian Creek. Note the plain grey adolescent in the lead.


  1. Dear The Observer,
    They're so cute, and yet it's all about Necessity. Thanks for the juxtaposition.

    It's fun watching them marching along with the ugly duckling young'uns leading the way.

    Thanks for visiting
