Graduation Day

Academic robes are extravagant fantasies

complicated pleats

dramatic colours

gold braid

and tassels

but the smiles come as standard.

Indeed, those are lovely photos.
Are the people yours?

These photos are beautiful! You know, I've had my own, stood next to others wearing theirs, but I've never really looked at academic gowns before, not like you did.

Thanks for opening my eyes,

Thank you - I am not used to asking people if I may take their photos and so I was rather flustered which is why the flash went off in the first making it shiny. I was also too nervous to ask for a pic of the grandest robes!
