Fishburn Park: Photographs by JACOB BENSEN

Photo 58

Jacob Bensen took these photographs of Roanoke, Virginia's Fishburn Park in 2oo6 when he was about 5 years old. Fishburn Park is a large park with a creek, woods, trails. Jacob used his grandmother Sue Leftwich's digital camera, which is a few years old & has been dropped a couple times. This camera has been known to add a pink wash to images every once in awhile, but it has never before produced melting faces, thick pink icing & melting cars.

Is this Fishburn Park or MacArthur Park or the X-Files or 1973 Colorado on acid? Anyway I think these are beautiful & wish Jacob the best in whatever sort of life he decides to lead.
