Let me start this post first by saying that I don’t believe any photojournalist enjoys covering a funeral. That said, its part of the job and from time to time we have to do it.
The interesting thing about this funeral, was that it was being webcast from Washington state. Marin had grown up in the area so the church and family worked together to show the funeral on a large screen in the chapel. The service may not have been right in front of me, but the emotion was.
