Was working the (Chagrin.) river, trying to stay out of the poison ivy. As I made my way up the  river bank to get back to my car, I stumbled upon this memorial to Andy. I don't know the back story, but that's OK. I've made up my own. From last October. Matt[attachment=19891:andy.3878_lzn.jpg]

Nice work... I'm sure Andy appreciates your efforts, wherever he is now.

Matt, I agree with Mike. Neat shot. I've thought about spending some time in New Mexico doing a series on the roadside shrines along the winding back roads. Some of them are fascinating. Like this one:

Roadside monuments are an interesting phenomena. Some are maintained over a long period of time and others are created and then let to fade to the past. They occur across the country (at least) and while its a well established custom, there is very little formal work to be found on the topic. It would be a good candidate for a book.

You obviously have rather more artistic shrine-makers in the US than we do. Over here, a "shrine" usually consists of a few bunches of dead flowers still in their cellophane wrapping.

Jeremy, There are plenty of those over here too, but the people in New Mexico seem to be unusually creative shrine makers. Lots of shrines too -- in between the "Don't drink and drive" signs. When you drive the New Mexican back roads you soon see why being a bit tipsy after dark could be hazardous to your health.
