‘An Outdoor Service’ – Jubilee Way, South Wimbledon

A woman sits cross legged on the pavement at the junction, her two children playing behind her. In front lies a number of floral tributes and a series of candles in lanterns, remembering the road accident that took the life of her husband. A very public display of devotion in grief, perhaps exceeding the norm of flowers laid (and decaying in their cellophane wrapping), whilst visits by relatives and friends decrease in the following weeks and months.
