graduation day

photo: Ing-Marie Karlsson

It's graduation day for Social Science class 3A of Walther's Upper Secondary School. The white - there are other colours - caps are traditional Swedish graduation gear. Often the school's name is embroided on the cap and the students write their names and a tribute on the inside. This is the peak of 12 years of studying and many weeks of partying.

Yeah, I like those uniforms! Do you know why do they wear this? Is there a story behind? I was always wondering...
