Above we see the group shot of gondoliers at the end
of the 2016 US Gondola Nationals.
A few were unavailable for the shot.
I believe Mark Schooling was cheese shopping in Wisconsin.
But I digress.
There we were, all happy and tired from all the rowing.
Someone said "Hey, we need to take a group photo!"
I told some of the guys to remove their jackets to show their stripes.
Some listened, some didn't.
I set up the tripod, asked my wife to take the photo,
and we all did our best to look respectable.
The end result was a great photo.
Someone yelled "Now it's time for a crazy shot!"
and the madness ensued.
It seems to come naturally for some people, and we are those people.
