My daughter just graduated high school from Deptford High last week. Another milestone in our lives and in hers. In a few months, she will be embarking on another chapter in her life, college. It will be a new experience for her and I know that she’s up to the task as God will be with her constantly.
Her graduation was held in the school’s football field late in the afternoon early evening but it was so hot and humid. Our parking was not great either, it was a long walk to the stands. We were seated in the middle part of the stadium which was strategic for taking pictures if not for the official photographers blocking the view since they were in the field for a closer shot. Most of my shots was using the Sony 200 mm F/2.8 lens on a Sony Alpha 99.
The speeches were not long, I guess in consideration of the weather. The school’s principal, superintendent and the town mayor gave their inspirational speeches as well as the graduating class president, salutatorian and the valedictorian. What I liked the most was the salutatorian’s speech. It seemed impromptu and it was lively, not boring since it was down to earth kind of speech.
