Have you ever felt embarrassment over your old photos, when you accidentally bump into them? Or do you keep looking into the mirror and then comparing your looks with the old photo you just encountered, and feel bewildered at the kind of drastic transformation you have been through? Either can be the case when you bump into old memories or photos! But, there is no denying that revisiting old captures is amusing and quite enjoyable as well!

Here's bringing you the photos taken over a span of thirty years, by a group of five friends. They got clicked in the same pose every five years. This tradition is taken up by them as an epitome of their friendship. These are the captures from Copco Lake, California where these five friends - John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney, John Molony and John Dickson relive their memories every five years.
