I thought it showed the bleakness well. Being in the desert adds a bit to that as well.Stark, very very stark! Your colour treatment reflects the subject very well.
Thanks for sharing Dave!
Had not thought about that as a project. I see a few on the raod and it always makes me think for a moment how grateful I am.Interesting stuff. I did a project on roadside memorials a few years ago. There was a spate of RTAs in and around my area and it was fashionable (still is in some quarters) to mark the spot with an impromptu shrine. It felt a little ghoulish, however and quite depressing. I gave up after an exchange with a woman who had lost someone. She came across me photographing her shrine when she came to refresh the flowers. I explained what I was doing and why and apologised for any inadvertent offence. She said quite the contrary, and asked for a print to help her remember.
I had never heard this. Here is the most updated info I could find(2007):hey Dave, youre in Arizona? me too. I thought road side memorials were illegal. Guess not, cause I see them all over too.
Well done, thanks for the shots
