The ritualized flip of a mortarboard's tassel becomes the staple of our days as photographers during graduation season.
Hundreds of grads have marched to the notes of "Pomp and Circumstance" as we focus upon this milestone in their lives.
Joyous laughter flows from some as others treat the occasion with reverence as a day of great import.
As we train our lenses on lines of gowned students, there is no way of knowing what will become of their limitless futures.
Perhaps we will cross paths with them again in their lives; as a merchant, a firefighter, a sword-swallower.
Wherever their dreams take them, we wish them well.
