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 pictures are there, and you just take them."

City Hall 2

More black and white photos from the recent trip to City Hall...

The floor in the first floor lobby area.

An ornate water fountain. Does this not just scream Art Deco?

Elevator doors on the second floor. Three different patterns. Here's one side.

Middle elevator.

The other side. Not every elevator door in the 28 story building is this ornate; the first and second floor feature these thematic designs.

  1. You're right City Hall demands black and white... I love that building because it is a pure design not unlike the interior of Municipal Auditorium, Music Hall, The Arena and Little Theatre... I LOVE Art Deco. Nice shots.!
