I'm terribly sorry I didn't get to this sooner...

Don Carey died June 9.  He was 75.

Don was a Times~Leader photographer for many years, and he was one of the best.

You'd never know it by looking at his work, or watching him work, but Don was handicapped.

Being a newspaper photographer is one of the toughest jobs in the business.  You lug gear.  You change lenses on the fly.  You shoot in some very challenging situations.  Bad weather.  Crime scenes.  Mob scenes.  People who don't want their picture taken.  It's a very long list.

Don performed his job with class and dignity, and he was a very nice man.  Your morning newspaper was better because Don Carey's work was in it.

My sympathy to his family and friends.
