Photographer's Note

Graduation "season" just passed and it was a lot of fun watching the new graduates celebrate by throwing their hats up in the air. After all those hours of toiling in labs, getting the degree feels really good. This is one such shot, except that the new graduate was throwing the hat at her mother, who was gleefully accepting it.

I titled it "from a student to a teacher" for two reasons. One, because a mother is the best teacher a child ever has, someone who teaches the child everything that she has ever known. The other reason being that I want to dedicate this shot to one of my favorites Catherine (noborders). She takes portraits and daily life shots, I take mainly landscapes. But I just adore her shots, they are so meaningful, I learn a lot from them. She has been trying to persuade me to take more "people" shots, so this one is for her. Hope she likes it :)

Taken at the spur of the moment, so forgive me the composition and other technicalities.
