Is taking photos at a funeral appropriate?
A few days ago was my grandmother's funeral. Without warning, the grandchildren (about five of us) were made to pose for a photo by someone we had only just met, and told to smile. Is it just me, or is this very inappropriate? It seems a bit perverse that there would be a photo of us smiling at my grandmother's funeral, especially since we were clearly in grief. So, besides the photo being grossly insincere, it feels like we were taken advantage of at a vulnerable time and made to do something that I felt was insulting to my grandmother, may she rest in peace, and to us. Should this have been allowed?
