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."

Ruskin vs. Park Hill

Photog's note: Because District Stadium is oriented north/south, the sun sets right over the visitor's stands. Thus pictures are best taken from the visitor's side. Since this is a photo blog and not the rah-rah sports blog, I'm posting the best from my trips to the grid iron, regardless of who is pictured.

Fumble! Actually a muffed punt by Park Hill. Ruskin eventually recovered the errant pigskin (just to the ref's left in this shot), leading to a score and one of the few bright spots for the Eagles in this game.

Pregame prayer. Three Park Hill players have a quiet time.
