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."

A Crook's Worst Nightmare

If you are a bad guy trying to get away from the police, there are two sounds you don't want to hear:
Strange sounding words followed by barking and the sound of pounding paws as the police dog comes to get you.

The chop-chop sound of the police helicopter overhead.

The Kansas City Police Department demo'ed both these crime fighting tools at the Red Bridge Festival today. I hope you were out and about in this very special weather for October. The weather geeks on KSHB reminded us it was 55 and rainy last year at this time!

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.
