I loved photographing President Gordon B. Hinckley in many parts of the world. As I and many other photographers were walking by him in Nauvoo, with cameras clicking in his face, he said, "If all the cameras of all the journalists were thrown into the ocean, there would be a great flood." Despite that tongue-in-cheek statement he was always kind to us and deferential to the thousands of cameras that followed him.
