14/7/2015 marked an important day to a beloved friend of mine, namely (here) Kak S. She graduated from the University of Warwick with Degree of Masters of Engineering (Hons). Since the professional photography session would cost her a fortune, she opt for my service (lol, "service") as her personal photographer for the day instead. Of course, as an amateur recreational photographer, I don't produce pictures nearly as good, especially since I never covered a graduation ceremony before. Nevertheless, I decided to post it up to commemorate the day.
|Academics on stage, with their colourful robe, and Hogwarts-styled procession.|
|British style of "cap mohor kebesaran".|
|The choir group with the conductor. Unseen is the wind orchestra.|
|The celebrated person of the day, amongst the many seated graduates in the hall.|
|So I was placed at a seat with the worst view for this.|
|Part of the Sulbah "gang"|
|I suppose they set up this flower stage just so there's a scenic view for graduation pictures :P|
|In front of the department she was in for 4 years.|
So the next couple of pictures were taken in the rain. It was heavily drizzling that day and we had to find shelter. After a few minutes of sitting down underneath an overhead roof, Kak S decided to stand in the rain and pose for some pictures whilst I remain un-wet under the shelter.
|What are graduations, if there's no mortarboard-throwing picture, eh?|
And that was it. Nothing fancy with studio photography or whatnot. Just some bunch of girls having fun celebrating their friend.
Congratulations Kak S! May Allah guide your ways and may you be blessed always :D
