In Memory of Greg

In Memory of Greg, originally uploaded by preyingjaws.

In Memory of Greg Smith Jr.
A few weeks ago I asked him if he'd gotten the photos of Patrick's services to the family. We joked a little - he told me how good they were and that he'd like me to shoot his memorial. Little did either of us know that the moment would be to soon. He died in his sleep last week.

When I found out of his passing I made arrangements to be at his services. I offered my condolences to the family and offered my lens. Little did I know his family found the un-delivered DVD of images.

This image posted is one of a mistake. I shoot with two cameras and how they hang the command dials takes a beating. The D-90's flipped to manual where my settings were for a night shoot I did a few days prior. I've made little adjustments to this image besides bring up the darks. I do think it represents the services well. The two boys on the right are nephews and the man on the left is an official in the LDS Church.

My condolences to the family and to the friends of Greg Smith Jr. He is a character may our memories of him last on long after the printed images fade.
