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."

I went to Wayside Waifs, and as usual, there were incredible cuties, waiting for adoption. For example, there was this group of kittens. Two boys, two girls, four different sizes, cute.

After I took this still, I was playing with the kittens when I realized that they were all turning their heads (mostly) together following the toy. Thus was birthed my first You Tube video. Enjoy!

I have to confess, I like the pink gear. I managed to score a pink towel and sideline hat last year for next to nothing. I would love pink Giants and/or Jets pink tinged hats in my collection.

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.
