Roadside Memorial: RIP Mario Théoret

RIP Mario Théoret

Killed on Hunt Club Rd. October 17, 2013 during his morning commute when a tractor trailer also traveling east turned right on to Merivale Road and hit him. Théoret was reportedly an avid cyclist who had expressed concerns regarding traffic and cyclists on Hunt Club Rd shortly before his death. Canadian Cycling Magazine noted that this intersection is considered one of the most dangerous in the city for cyclists. Théoret was 38 years old.

I decide to shoot this memorial from a low angle with a wide lens to give it more power and noticed a partial sun flare when reviewing the initial shot, so I ramped the aperture to f22 to maximize the effect and stretched out on the sidewalk to place it appropriately – the shot worked, but I’ve decided that if I do that again I’ll take a spotter so people don’t trip over me 🙂
