I second the sentiment: Beautiful.
If you hadn’t posted this here, I never would have had a glimpse into the world shown.
Obviously, this was a very well-beloved man. Who wouldn’t want a funeral like this?
The lighting, depth of focus, resolution, and camera work are so good, one feels like the participants are actors in a movie.
