    Little Drawings on Film Burned Photos

    Five Friends Keep 30-Year Photo Tradition!

It was the beginning of a long-lasting habit of photography and friendship—going on the same trip with the same people and taking the same photo—which they've kept up for a solid 30 years! See their "bro-mantic" evolution in photos here.
