On a recent boat trip with
friends we were guided to this abandoned fishing village called Butedale.
It is located in a remote spot on the inland waterway from Vancouver,
British Columbia, to Alaska, and is only accessible via seaplane or boat.
This leads me to believe not many Shutterbug readers have had the opportunity
to view this unusual collection of buildings once a bustling, thriving
port of commerce. I was not only taken by its state of deterioration,
but by its still vivid colors and beautiful setting.
|The premise of Talking Pictures
is that all of us have images that carry an internal narrative that we rarely
get to share. This entails more than just camera, exposure, and film. It
might include what provoked us to snap the shutter or how, in retrospect,
the image makes us feel.
We invite you to submit images and words for this department. Please send only one image and brief text with each submission. Because we will print the pictures large please make sure that the image can take the blowup. For this department we will accept only high-quality prints (5x7 or 8x10) and slides--no digital files, please. We will not be able to return the images to you because of the volume we anticipate receiving. And by sending us the image you grant us permission to print it in the magazine and on our web site. We also may hold publication for some time.
So come on, get published and share your ideas and inspiration. Send submissions to Talking Pictures, Shutterbug, 1419 Chaffee Dr. Suite #1, Titusville, FL 32780.
