Photo traditions

In 1982, five teenagers sat down and posed for a picture at Copco Lake in California. The guys didn't plan on making it a tradition, but that's what it became.


For the last 30 years, they’ve been meeting at the lake every five years and taking the same photo as a tribute to their friendship. They recently shot their seventh photo and have a Facebook page devoted to the project.
