This week over on Her Space : My Space they are focusing on emotions and todays prompt is Sad. They prompt you with one word and you translate it the best you can through your lens. Try hard as you can not to use a human face to reflect that emotion. For instance - Sad. A dying plant, a messy corner, mucky windows (we all have them at one point!).
As soon as I saw the prompt I knew what I wanted to do. My picture is of a road side memorial that I pass every day on my way to drop Georgia off at school. These roadside memorials are becoming a common sight here in Milton Keynes and I am sure it is the case everywhere else.
This one is a memorial to a motor cyclist aged 36 that was killed when he was hit by a car during September. I remember the evening clearly as I was on my way back to school for a PTA meeting and the road was closed. Whenever I see these by the roadside it makes me realise how precious life is. I am sure the motor cyclist never knew that would be his final ride. His children will grow up without their Father, and a Wife without her Husband. So next time you are driving past one of these memorials, think of how it would affect your family if you never came home from your journey.
So stay safe on the roads, particularly during the colder months.
