Black & White: Roadside Memorial (1)

Robin Freeman

Being a biker I spend a fair bit of time on the road in the summer and see many of these memorials, some regularly maintained, others falling into disrepair as time passes and wounds heal. Last year I saw some roadside memorial shots an Internet friend (Robert W Gilcrease) captured during his travels and was inspired to shoot a series of my own this summer during mine – this is the first.

If I can locate information regarding what happened it will be posted with the image.

I didn’t know Robin Freeman but I do drive by his memorial often, and I do remember his death. He was killed while riding his BMX bike across the street when a red sport bike travelling at at least twice the posted speed limit hit him – he was 16.
