    Funerals

    Are funerals a time to take photos or display photos?
    Perhaps both?

    Re: Funerals

    Most funerals that I have attended lately have photos displayed. They give a type of history to the deceased and seem to be appreciated by both family and friends. Many times videos are shown as well.

    At my father's funeral dinner after the service, I took the opportunity to take large family photos that are very precious to me. That seems to be the only time we can get all the family together, so it seems to be an opportune time. No one seemed to object at all. We also took a group shot after my mother-in-law's graveside service at a family cemetery in the countryside. Again, everyone seemed to be very agreeable to having their picture taken.

    Both, certainly, it's part of life! (excuse the pun).

    Its a strange thing, but I just don't feel the need to photograph a personal funeral in a huge documented way. Two or three carefully chosen images at most would suffice for me. Perhaps its my way of dealing with the loss.

    Displaying images, for sure. The more the better for me.
