The year of Our Lord 2020 will certainly be remembered for the adjective “virtual” being used as a prefix to most events. For those students/graduates of 2020 the safest way for a graduation ceremony was a Virtual Graduation, due to COVID19. The images to follow will be remembering an actual graduation I attended at Lincoln University.
You have finally made it. You can look back at all those years of having so much information being pumped into your head and you now have a Degree. The dressing up and attendance with fellow graduates and family is a celebration that marks a mile stone in your progression through life in society.
The view from the highest pinnacle at Lincoln Castle shows Lincoln Cathedral on the right. The Graduation Ceremony was held in Lincoln Cathedral and further events were held in the Castle.
This was my first visit to Lincoln so I came early to capture images of the town. It is a nice place. Check before you visit. Certain places might not be open due to COVID19. Below are the images of the Graduation Day.
The weather was lovely and everybody was having a good time. I captured the moment, the people and the places. Social gatherings for a good reason are essential for the development of society.
With the absence of graduations I did not get the enjoyment of getting flash equipment for studio photography. It is like a set of dominoes standing up side by side. When one falls the others follow. What I am saying is that no graduations meant that no pictures are taken and hence no flash equipment is required, no gowns are hired, no venues are hired and no catering is required.
