Boone Knox Memorial outtake

Mourners sing a hymn during a memorial service for Boone Knox at Sacred Heart Cultural Center, Monday, January 17, 2011, in Augusta, Ga.

I love shooting inside Sacred Heart Cultural Center.  Actually, I'm pretty sure all the photographers on staff here love to shoot there.  It's by far the most photogenic building inside and out in Augusta. 

It was standing room only at Boone Knox's memorial service held yesterday afternoon.  The place was packed with the most influential people in the area - not surprising considering Knox's phenomenal life and career.  And long-time friend Tom Cousin's eulogy was wonderful.  I always enjoy funny stories about someone's life that paint a picture of who that person was and how they treated others.  Mr. Knox was a class act for sure. 

Here's a little something different from pretty much the only spot I could get to with the mass of people downstairs.  It's an outtake but it fills my need to shoot repeating patterns and symmetrical photos.

And besides, I got lots of good comments on the suit I wore from colleagues.  It's not everyday I wear a tie, that's for sure.  One reporter told me I looked like a totally different person.  Guess that means I'm a slob the rest of the time...
