Behind the Lens, A Photographer's Story-- AJC Photojournalist Ben Gray talks about his shot of lightning over Midtown Atlanta.
As storms rolled into Atlanta on Tuesday evening, I headed up the Downtown Connector (highway network system) on my way to cover a lightning-strike fire in Acworth, about 40 minutes north of Atlanta. Rain started pouring down, lightning lit the sky and traffic slowed to a crawl. I immediately realized there was no sense in trying to make my way to Acworth when I was in the middle of the storm already.

Stephanie Summers was five months pregnant when her husband died in a plane crash last year.
She gave birth to a baby boy a few months later and named him after his father, Taurean.
According to Gordillo’s Facebook, Summers wanted to take pictures with her son in the same places she had taken photos with her late husband months before. She even planned to match the color schemes in the two shoots.
From there, Gordillo created a custom image of Summers and her son with her late husband, who was edited into the photo.
Gordillo said Summers loved the finished product and couldn’t stop crying.
Taurean, who was a paramedic, was on a plane that was transferring a patient to a caner center in Phoenix. It crashed in Las Creces, killing everyone on board.
“My heart broke to see what could have been, but at the same time, I was so happy to execute such a beautiful image for Stephanie and her son,” Gordillow wrote.
Gordillo has since received numerous requests to create similar photos with families and their deceased loved ones.

Have you seen this woman? Police in Grand Rapids, Michigan said they received a tip that may link an old cold case to our area. They released a photo of Dean Pyle Peters at age 15 when she disappeared, and another photo of what she may look like now at age 49.
Peters went missing February 5, 1981 from a middle school in Grand Rapids where she was attending her little brother's wrestling practice with her mother. She was last seen walking out of the gym to go to the restroom.
New tips have been coming in since Peters was featured as the February missing child of the month on the Justice Network. One of those tips came from someone who said she is living in the Dayton area.
