After reading, I was wondering how you were going to capture it and the images look just as I had imagined. Wonderful. I'm sure they will be cherished. If I can say one small thing and I hope you don't think I'm a di*k, but the skin tones inside the church look very red to me.

A very difficult time but I think you covered it very well. I can't get over how little his daughters have grown between the 2 events... looks like a brief time between.

I have no idea how I would shoot something like that. I would find that pretty hard. I would even consider declining but I know I couldn't.

Horrible situation for everyone.

Well done.

The coverage is fantastic, you gave those little girls a gift of immense value.

As I mentioned in reply to the OP's post on FB... I routinely talk to my children about the signficantly increased risk of crossing a road, but also of just walking along a road during the two times of day when the sun is at the right angle to blind eastbound (in the am) and westbound (in the pm) motorists. I even took them riding around and sat them temporarily in the front seat at the right seat height, to see exactly what the drivers see (well... don't see) when this happens.

I post this because I think you should do the same with your own little ones. And the not so little ones. If one life is spared as a result of others understanding what led to Jason's death, then this hero can continue his mission of saving lives even after his own passing.

It doesn't take much to make yourself A LOT safer. If you have to walk along a two-way east-west road walk on the north side in the morning and the south side in the afternoon.

Ciao!

Alessandro

you did a great job, i dont think i would not have kept "it" together especially when his daughter spoke. Your pics certainly tugged at my heartstrings. A great job on a very sad day.

Nice job capturing the moments. I've only been to one funeral and it is a tough tough event to photograph.

Morgan, I offered my free service as a friend. Documenting the funeral never crossed her mind. I am glad I did. This was a pretty big event as you can see, but I was the only one with a DSLR. I thought for sure there would be people from the newspaper. There were only video crews from a local channel.

Thanks for sharing this Alessandro. I will make sure to do the same with my kids. Jason was not a careless man. Being a firefighter, he always puts safety first. Hearing about how serious the injury was, I cant help my self but judge about the driver. The speed limit of this road cannot be very high. I am just in shock because he is the strongest man I have ever known personally.

Very nice coverage indeed. I would expect the skin tones to be red from light reflecting off the red chairs (but what do I know). Thanks for sharing. I like lisy78's comments about sharing blind spots. I too am surprised about lack of media coverage. This man looks like a gentle giant. He will be surely missed in the community.

It hurts us too to read this. There are a number of places we would love to cycle to together in our town, but we currently live in a very cycle unfriendly part of town, and we just can't justify the risk.

Robin, thanks for sharing. This is a sad story but one that needed to be told. Through your lens, so many like me will remember a man they never knew.
