This is the weekly f-stop Franklin feature

f-stop is an abbreviation for a camera lens aperture setting that corresponds to an f-number, which is the ratio of the focal length of a lens to the effective diameter of its aperture.


With fewer than two weeks before Christmas, the beauty of God’s creation takes on a festive glow, with plenty of chances to capture images of the season. The Times welcomes readers to send us their best photographs; whatever they capture, an unusual image, person, place or thing, we want it. Photos can be of any subject, but we especially like people.


Please send photographs to David Adlerstein at dadlerstein@starfl.com. For more information, call 653-8894.
