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."

Bartle Baubles

When you are driving, you often see scenic shots you'd like to get but you can't because, well, you're driving. Today, I was on a bus going downtown. So I was able to shoot this photo with the Blackberry of the Bartle sculptures--the Bartle Baubles are what I call them.

Many call them the hair curlers.

I love the sky in the picture. I tried cropping some of it out, but I didn't like the photo as well. This is an uncropped shot.

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.
