5 guys, 1 pose, 35 years later

Five friends from Santa Barbara High School have been snapping the same photo in the same pose on the same cabin bench every five years for the past 35 years.
From left to right, as is the tradition, John “Wedge” Wardlaw, Mark Rumer-Cleary, Dallas Burney, John Molony and John Dickson gazed at the camera on Saturday in the remote serenity of Copco Lake on the California-Oregon border to capture their eighth entry into the photo collection that took the Internet by storm five years ago.
“It blows my mind 35 years later we’re recreating that 1982 photo,” said Dickson.
Wardlaw, who snapped the photo, believes it’s one of their best. “I used a Nikon D800 and video and think we came the closest we ever have to the original photo,” he said.
