Welcome to The F-Stops Here...

The dawn of a new year : Sunrise over Mont Blanc : Ferney-Voltaire, FR

Welcome to my newest iteration in photoblogging, The F-Stops Here. The title comes from two things: 1) f-stops on a camera and 2) the F bus that runs from Ferney-Voltaire, France, where I'm currently living, to Geneva, Switzerland, where I'm currently working.

Not a lot will be different from my other blogs: D.C. Confidential, Standing Room Only, or Whidbey Island Confidential. That is to say, I'll be shooting and posting photos of the town in which I live. Ferney-Voltaire lies right on the border of France and Switzerland. In fact, I literally live across the street from Switzerland! Hence today's inaugural photo. I'm standing less than 100 yards from the French-Swiss border, looking out into Switzerland and seeing Mont Blanc.

Thanks for stopping by. Please be sure to bookmark this new page. Also, if you're a city daily photoblogger, watch for me on City Daily Photo. I should be up and running there soon.

Your ever intrepid photographer,

Janet M. Kincaid

Addendum: 1 September 2012

Note to readers who may have looked back through the articles. I arrived in Europe for a 45-day contract and now, more than three years later, I'm still here. Based on the original contract period, I didn't set up a new blog and continued to use my D.C. Confidential photo blog to chronicle my travels through Europe. In January 2010, I acquired a new camera and decided to start a new blog. That said, I have now moved all of my blog entries from 18 May 2009 to 1 January 2010 to this blog as I want my D.C. Confidential blog to be strictly about Washington, D.C., and my travels in the United States. Ergo, the oddities with the dates and this seemingly incongruous "Welcome to my new blog" entry.

Ah my dear friend, here is to me (and most of the world) living vicariously through the lense of Janet the (photo) Journalist.
