Late Bloomer


Technical Info: Kodak Gold 200 film.

While enjoying a road trip that included 14 states and 6500 miles, I came upon this field of sunflowers near Vivian, South Dakota. I focused on the one sunflower that hadn't bloomed yet. I myself am a late bloomer in that at age 37 I have finally found my calling: photography. A friend is currently building a website for me (http://stevetodey.com) and I'm hopeful that I will develop into a real photographer before the last frame is shot. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to this photo since their dreams aren't dead until they dry up and die.

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 website. 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.
