This month's Picture This! assignment, Found Montage, will not be running.
The photographs submitted for Picture This! were sent from our collection point
to review a few days before Hurricane Katrina struck and never arrived for review.
After extensive efforts at tracing the review package we can only conclude that
the package was lost within the chaos of the storm and its aftermath. We hope
those of you who submitted pictures will understand. While our loss here is
minor compared to the overall tragedy of the storm, we still value the photos
and images you submitted and we will continue to make every effort to recover
the package and the photographs.
We receive hundreds of submissions for Picture This! each month and want to be sure we properly identify each image we publish. Please be sure to attach your name and image information to the back of each submission.
Picture This! Our Next Assignment
Wavin' Old Glory
Over the summer many of us had a chance to attend parades and festivals where Old Glory was often in full display. Our Picture This! assignment this month is to not just give us a shot of the flag waving in the breeze, but to show the flag in context of a parade, festival, or special event that is as much a picture of America as it is of the flag that represents it. This photograph was made at the annual Arroyo Seco, New Mexico, 4th of July parade using a Kodak EasyShare DX7590 camera. You might call it "alien nation."
