Maplewood Police Sgt. Joe Bergeron's Funeral

Maplewood Police Sgt. Joe Bergeron’s Funeral

Last Thursday my fellow bloggers Dan, Rob and I went to observe Maplewood Police Sgt. Joe Bergeron’s Funeral. Officers representing cities all over the state started showing up before dawn and stood silently at attention across the street from the cathedral. It was an incredibly moving experience and one I will never forget. As Dan said, “I’m glad we went, but I never want to do that again.”

When I was at the St. Paul Cathedral, Annette from Annette and Walter modeled for this shot. This devotional-candle stand, with so many points of light, was a real challenge: I used an f/1.4 for the shallow depth of field to add emotion and draw the eye to the point of interest.

I’m connected, so if you’d like to submit your prayers in the comments, I will pass them on up!
