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.

Town and Country

This 1950s vintage Chrysler station wagon is a rare sight--although station wagons are being seen more and more at car shows and cruises.

As was common in the 1950s and 1960s, the car is decorated with much chrome.

A closer look at what the classic car hobby calls "bright work."

Chrysler's minivans still bear the title "Town and Country" as both a homage to the generations before and a true note that the wagon/minivan is useful in both "Town" and "Country."
