An inspirational photo that reminds us that anything is possible as long as you reach for it.
(submitted by Michael)
I keep counting the arms in this pic. I swear there is an extra one.
This looks suspiciously like the guy who sold us a car! his name was also Michael….hahahahaha
I LOVE YOU DAD!!!
Alley oop, poops. One more push and you can make it up the tree.
I think something’s missing in the background…didn’t there used to be two donkeys there?
The younger guy is extremely good looking. And it doesn’t look like he’s even aware of it. (the best kind of lookers – i’m in this category). Back to the photo. The pose has a ‘gorillas in the mist’ kind of feel to it. Very lovin’ tho. Nice son/grandson & dad/grandad vibe. Nice!
So whats this guys name?
I especially love the hand on the waist 🙂
That young man looks like John Barrowman (Jack Harkness from Torchwood), and it looks like the kind of photo Barrowman would be in…posin’ with his gramps.
OMG! I know him! The young him. I went to prom with him my senior year! Now everything makes sense…
are you serious?If so thats funny.
Is the young him’s name Barry? I think I know him, too. But it’s been a while.
Ack. I’ve just been informed that young him is not who I thought it was. Guess I was swayed by the fact that the name of the ‘submitted by’ is the name of the guy I thought it was…
Funny pic – but more than that – I want to know what kind of camera they have – with all that bright sunlight and the ‘men’ standing in the shade – and yet the picture is quite brilliant… I mean the quality NOT the pose… lol
I’m fairly certain that Grandpa’s other hand is just pretending to hold a branch. That’s a little awkward.
And to the person who submitted this photo: Are there any solo shots of cutie?
Lol! That’s what I thought – where is the branch he’s holding on to???
Raise your hand, raise your haaaaaand if you’re Sure!
Hope they both remembered to use deordorant.
This is why Tarzan should have never married the American woman he rescued and settled down. He totally lost his mojo.
At least there’s no armshelf. However, that fact is negated when one considers the overuse of its lesser-known cousin: tree-shelf.
1. Hmmm…. Maybe they really do grow on trees but one is a little more ripe than the other.
2. Why are they holding that tree up?
Personally, I think the most awkward part is the kid’s questional hand placement on grandpa…..
Using the non-word questional is even more awkward… 😉
You know, so many couples would choose to lean *against* the tree (or, as we’re learning from this site, hide *in* the tree). I like this choice. It’s bold, innovative, fresh–just like their love.
The apples doesn’t fall far from the tree. Or Gramps.
That’s a funny spot for your hand reach around rest.
Good way to air out the armpits!
I dunno… that’s a bit of a stretch. I think you need more people in your family tree.
Junior decided getting on gramps shoulders wouldn’t be such a good idea after all.
since grandpa has no feet,his grandson was kind enough to hold him up while he hung from the tree
This has got to be one of my favorites of all! So good.
If Grandpa’s arms weren’t also reaching up, it would be okay.
Move out of the way Gramps…I wish cutie was in the front!!
The chain link fence in the background adds to the ambiance.
Where can I get a seedling of that tree ??? My neighborhood could use a tree that grows good looking guys!!!
Hahaha! Good one!
So could my sister! When you find one let me know, I’ll send it to her for Christmas.
“There you go grampa..up into the tree!”
Agreed. This is a GOOD photo.
This is soo sweet. Men are always afraid to show affection. Kudos to these guys, whatever their relationship may be.
Nice caption about the tree limbs though, lol.
Suddenly, I have this strange urge to listen to Peter Gabriel’s “Shaking The Tree”….
Ok, see all you wanna-be submitters… _this_ is awkward. From Gramp’s “what on earth…” line-smile to the angle of the legs right back to the arms in the trees, this is what awkward looks like.
Totally agree. What an odd idea for a photo!
Frankly, kind of a reach.
This picture really grabs me.
ba dum dum
The kid missed his opportunity…. tickle tickle tickle 🙂
I’m so ticklish I can’t even look at this picture without squriming.

They swore on that Arbor Day 17 years ago that they’d always be there for each other. Somehow, they both missed the fact that the commitment was a figurative one.
Junior is cute, but I think he’s giving a peek of his undies.
Nope – that’s just a belt.
I believe that’s a belt.
I think that might be some sort of fancy belt. Perhaps with an American flag motif?
Inspired by Shel Silverstein. Brilliant.
Personally, my favorite part is the ugly chain link fence in the background. It totally ruins the picture.
I think it’s very sweet that they stopped to take a photo when the tree fell on them.
Hahaha! I love it! You are too funny 🙂
And… why is this awkward?
someone, who doesn’t understand posing, was trying to pose them–and it turned out odd instead of “whimsical” or “casual”
Ok, this pic makes me uncomfortable. I believe it definitely falls within the “awkward” photo guidelines. 🙂
is it the hand on the waist?
I like this one. It’s cute. And I swear I know the younger guy.
I like this one too. The guy’s HOTT.
I actually really like this photo. Reminds me of Grandpa.
I think the engagement-picture pose is much more awkward than the arms reaching into the tree.
They’re such a cute May-December couple! : )
The young guy is VERY good looking. He really should be acting or modeling. Great smile!
Yes indeedy heeby, he is a hottie!
