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."

Dangerous BoyCat

Something startled both the BoyCat and the SmallFry. They went flying in opposite directions, claws out, hair up. BoyCat, flat of fur ordinarily, is a sight to behold when his hair is up. I snapped this picture, disappointed his bottlebrush tail did not show up well.

When I pulled it up on the big screen, and beheld the hackles raised, the pools of blackness in his hazel eyes, the posture ready for defense and attack, I realized once again that I share my house with small fierce animals we call "cats."

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.
