    Roadside Shrine

    This is one of the crosses I mentioned at the intersection of Webb Chapel and Harry Hines. Being on the median of a very busy road, I had difficulty even taking a shot.
    I cannot imagine how much harder it would be to set up the crosses in the dark.

    ShiroKuro,
    Interesting shot, do these shrines memorialize someone like the ones here?

    Lili ,
    These shrines are in memory of people who died in a car accident .. Most are very similar to the the one you photographed .... in most cases theses memorials will be maintained for years to come .

    The same here. I have been so tempted to leave flowers myself.

    One, that stood for years here, was in memorium of a biker killed by a hit and run driver.
    The site was finally bulldozed and developed.

    Sadness
