maybe that's just the price you pay for the chains you refuse
--more pics from Brown's Farm park in Blacksburg. Since I live within minutes of the park and enjoy going there, I'm thinking of making it a long term project--documenting the diverse environment of the park and the people (and their dogs) who use it. It's an interesting place, with a pond, a couple of large fields, woods, and several delapidated farm buildings. It's close to town, but offers visitors a taste of the wild and an escape from routine and the workday world. I like the idea of showing the dynamic life of the park--the associations between people, animals, and the land--through portraits, still lifes, and landscapes.
