Doug Stockdale's Singular Images

Heart Broken Fence – In Passing project update

When I was writing about our trip to Las Vegas a couple of days ago, I just realized that I had an image to post with it, which is this one Heart Broken Fence, part of my project In Passing. In the introduction I wrote about how these road side memorials continue to change. 

What I saw during the drive on I-15 through Victorville, was that this memorial has also been entirely removed. This memorial was situated on a frontage road to I-15 at the intersection to a side road that went into a older sub-division. Now in place of this memorial is a brand new turning lane on the frontage road and a redesigned intersection. I think someone got the point.

Perhaps another life may not be lost due to a dangerous intersection and this memorial was part of a successuful stimulus to make a much needed change.

Best regards, Doug


  1. Great story. Nice that it made a difference.

  2. I’m a little punchy. I meant to hit return and start another paragraph.

    I also wanted to say that your excellent image serves as a worthwhile record of the memorial that provoked the change. Nice job on both ends.
