This photo of a drained storage
tank with the access cover removed was taken in Livingston, Montana.
The photo evokes a different feeling depending on the season. On a sweltering
summer day, one gets the feeling that someone opened the valve too far,
allowing all the summer's heat to escape at one time. In the deep
cold of a long winter, one feels it will never get warm again until
someone refills the tank.

Please Read This
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.
