What’s Up, Docs?

I’m a little late to post here, but once Tufts Commencement wrapped up, I was pretty much on a plane headed to San Francisco for a much-needed vacation (some of those pics to come). That just means that this next set of photos have just been sitting by the wayside while I’ve been getting a little R&R.

In addition to general Commencement coverage of the main event — you know, honorary degrees, big name speakers, lots of pomp, not so much circumstance — I was tasked with covering the commencement ceremony for the Tufts University School of Medicine. For our general commencement coverage, our team was divided up into separate sectors of the quad. Here’s a look at what our team accomplished in the morning: http://now.tufts.edu/packages/commencement-2011

As a one man crew at the Medical commencement, I was allowed a lot more liberty to just wander around and make what I thought were interesting pictures, without having to worry about snapping frames of people with famous names. Here’s a sampling of what I saw:
