About the closest I'm going to get to a "portrait" nowadays with available subjects in our household. Is it a shoehorn for this challenge - pretty much. Do I love the moment? Absolutely! Do I care if it ends up coming in last? Nope.

With the pandemic and social distancing in place the schools cannot hold traditional graduation ceremonies. Instead, the graduates were able to have a personal celebration. Went to school, walked across the stage with the school authorities making the same name announcement and handing out of diploma that would have happened with classmates, but now in front of family only.

I didn't know that we were going to have photo ops outdoors, including the football field. Had I known I would have brought my A77II with fast auto-focus lens. As it was I only carried my A7II and some old M42 glass (manual focus). This was taken with a Pentax 35/2.

Here's the series I took combined into an animated gif. :-)
