So, what I did was to take two very similar pictures, three times. For each pair, I took one with a large aperture (and therefore a lower f-stop number, and theoretically a more shallow depth of field... if your eyes glazed over while reading that, don't worry; just check out the pictures, and you'll likely see a difference), and I also took one with a smaller aperture (which would reverse all that crap in the previous parentheses).
In any case, just compare the two pictures. The smaller the f-stop number, the more limited the focus should be (which would lead to hopefully pleasantly blurry background, for example... I think):
Actually, if you really do want to figure those out, you can click on the picture and find that information in flickr.
Thanks for reading, and I'll hope to see you here again next week!

Now, for Composition:
Finally, how about some Contrast:
In any case, thanks for looking/reading, and have a great day!
That's it for the moment. I'm also uploading some more pictures right now, so I'll try to get completely caught up as soon as possible. Thanks for reading!

The video's not really that spectacular, except the part where he drinks an enormous glass of Alka Seltzer.
Also, I just noticed that this is my 600th post on Sitzblog! My, how time flies! Thanks for reading, and here's to 600 more!

"-Gentlemen- THE BERLIN WALL.
Erected August 13, 1961
Demolished August 9, 1989
27.5 Miles Long
Over 100 people were killed trying to escape to freedom. Flew over it, dove through it, climbed over it, & even tunneled under it."
Hey, it's a great day for freedom... and the loosest slots in town!
Angela in front of the Luxor Hotel.
The ride took a people-filled claw over the edge of the building and then started spinning them around. Then the claw opened up so the people were looking straight down.
Paul said it was freaky.
