Aperture: f/5.6
Focal Length: 140 mm

  1. The newsboy is gone...the paper itself will soon follow. I feel old!

  2. I agree with June re. the past. Strange, isn't it, how progress makes unwanted changes, at least for some of us? The smell of new books and newspapers will soon be something of the past. Love the sculpture...a different kind of public art.

  3. right now everything u want is on the net...

    nice picture...

  4. I like this statue harking back to yester year.

  5. Ah...when the news was actually news, not bloviating commentary by Olbermann or O'Reilly.

    Wait a minute, William Randolph Hearst was kinda like Olbermann and O'Reilly! At least back in the days of print news there was the idea of fair reporting. But I'm about to stand on my soapbox and start bloviating myself...

    Great shot, today. I love the big text across the bottom of the frame.

  6. No way will the newspaper disappear in the UK. It's a cornersrone of the morning rush hour. Good point you've raised ans the image just underlines it perfectly.

  7. I am my own paper boy printing from time to time articles from the web...
