I posted this shot onto my Instagram profile and one week later got a call from a woman. She had been driving on that road caught up in her own thoughts and was disturbed by the flash of a photographer at the roadside - I am assuming me. She had driven past the crosses and had not even seen them - when my flash went off, she looked around and saw them for the first time. Turns out, she had recently divorced and was realocating further north. She was weeling completely despondent and with no hope in her life. Haiving seen the crosses, she stopped her car about 1Km further and took time to pray. Realising she was so caught up in her sadness, that she was missing things around her, she is now more focused and determined to rebuild her life from a positive midset. Has made me realise once again that our images as photographers really have the power to transform the world - if only one person at a time.
