Triumph


These triumphant fellows must have just won the camp volleyball championship.

  1. Nice all-over tan on the male second from left. This shot has all the earmarks of an amateur shot. Still, it's pretty good, all things considered. Did you crop off the man on the extreme left?

    1. No, but it does look amateur. I've seen this in professional physique group shots as well.

  2. What a lovely photo. A bunch of guys having fun and totally at ease with themselves and others.

  3. The Olympic committee should take note of these guys' uniforms and follow their example.

    1. Whew! Thank you. Given your influence with the committee, I'm sure they'll make those changes immediately. Maybe even have you inspect the, uh, uniforms.

    2. Well, I got a terse reply indicating that this was not the sort of authenticity they were looking for.

  4. No, they won the Tent Erecting Competition in a world record time of 1 hour, 32 minutes, 25.7 seconds.

    1. I once used a tent in Big Bend National Park that slept six and took almost an hour to set up. As soon as we settled in for the night, a West Texas windstorm promptly blew the thing over. Rather that try setting it back up in a gale, we slept in our cars.

    2. When I was a kid in the early 60’s we had a 24 man tent. It was a real chore to set up. The last time we set it up in our back pasture the cattle took offense to it and tore it to shreds. For two years they’d ignored it, but for some reason not the summer of ‘63.
