Sometimes our lives are so
hectic that the peace and tranquility we crave escapes us. As I was
walking around a very busy little town, I noticed this scene in a churchyard
and thought that it was a very calming area in the middle of all the
hustle and bustle. Even in the business of our lives we need to take
time to slow down, notice and reflect upon the quiet little places surrounding
us all the time.

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.
