I first saw a post card of this park in the city where my wife is from, Ekaterinburg, Russia. When I finally got to visit this park on our vacation in July 2002, it made me feel even more at peace, like I was home again in a place I have never been, but had always felt. Ekaterinburg is a wonderful city with beautiful people and life on every corner. The outside cafés, with the aroma of wonderful food, the shops with incredible artwork, the people moving about with their busy lives yet always taking time to enjoy every moment of life; this is what I had always felt like in my heart. What I had always dreamt of doing, of becoming. In several years I will be retiring. Maybe then I can finally become.

Please Read This
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.
