Sadly in Passing

It was the wreck of a car that first caught my attention.
At first I thought it was just another wreck that didn't make the mileage.
I stopped for a closer look - only then did I notice the memorial on the opposite side of the road.
A 43 year old lost his life at this spot, I was saddened by those he left behind. It could so easily happen to me I thought.

All accidents like this are a tradegy.

Still, Ilike the colour of the sky in the first.

Re: Sadly in Passing

I think it's the way and the age that makes this death so tragic OM. The accident may well have been caused by driver fatigue as the distances between towns in this region are often hundreds of kilometres apart. I found myself having to stop every hour or so for a power nap.

Interesting processing, Mark, and not your usual style, but it's really effective for these images.

Re: Sadly in Passing

Thanks John - in reviewing the originals in colour it somehow felt inappropriate to post them that way. A Sepia variation seemed the more respectful way to go.
