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."

Auto Show Favorite Shots

Some of my favorite shots from the Greater Kansas City Auto Show...

Line for tickets--quickly and graciously dispatched I might add!

Jaunty angle, open door, visible fingertips on the steering wheel...I just like this simple shot of a Chevy Camaro getting a look see.

Honda Element has suicide doors...enough said!

Little finger prints on the hood of this Kia Soul attracted my photographer's eye...

Bittersweet: 1992 Soapbox Derby winner sponsored by Crawford's of Raytown...

Subaru put the bikes on the top--the couple looking at each other installed themselves!

Dream on buddy, dream on!

I fell in love with these little Ford vans last year--they had just one out this year, dressed as a taxi. I sat in the front and back and I think they'd make a good taxi!

Toyota saleslady with iPad in hand...

Two very different photos--one the saleslady is interacting with the humans, the other she is interacting with the iPad.
