Sgt. Russell’s funeral procession.

Taken earlier this year.

Sgt. Ryan Russell was a Toronto police officer who died in the line of duty on January 12, 2011.   He left behind his wife and two year old child.

The following week, a funeral procession was held in his honour in downtown Toronto.

Attendees were from all over North America.

Toronto is a large city, that is usually quite busy and noisy.  On this day, during the procession, the downtown core was eerily quiet.

The first photo was chosen as a Leica Fotografie International (LFI) Master Shot.
