mourning a friend

I had to stick my camera in the face of another grieving person yesterday.

I guess I could have stood across the road and photographed the Kane County accident scene where two Kaneland High School students died in a one car crash but that would have made me feel even ickier.

I prefer to ask permission and try to explain why I am there.

If you are a regular reader of this blog you realize that I am starting to sound like a broken record but I can’t remember a year where I have had to cover so much death.

Thursday’s situation was especially poignant. Alysa Barry, a friend of Blake Denton, the driver of the car that crashed, found Denton’s side view mirror laying near the tree that Denton’s car crashed into.
