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 March arriving, winter readies to give way to spring, and a fresh blend of nature, people, and community. 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
