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."

Mama Kitty

My neighbor's cat. We call her Mama, or Mama Kitty--she had one litter of one kitten before being spayed. She's at least 10 years old and is a mostly outdoor cat. For being mostly outside, she is remarkably healthy. She is a sweet, patient and interactive animal, and I enjoy her visits, even if she does leave paw prints on my car hood.

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.
