When this guy leans in for a kiss, you better be ready to catch him.

those are my parents. this picture was taken Easter of 2010. my older sister insisted on taking “fancy pictures” at the park after church. my dad doesn’t usually like posing for pictures so when we do he is usually goofy, and it always frustrates my sisters. in this picture, he thought it would be helpful to make the height difference (my mom is 5’1″, my dad is 6’2″) a bit smaller by leaning in a little. 😀
This is a teacher at my school!!!!!! PHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!
Can I bring the tree with me on the big day? It keeps me steady.
“…well, I haven’t really decided who I want to marry…..but I’m leaning towards Lisa….”
Don’t I remember him from Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” video…??
…..thus the nickname “Ten-O’clock Tommy”
“Hey, Luce, Is this guy bothering you? . . . ‘Cause it looks like he’s leaning.”
Wonderful reference from “while you were sleeping!” Thank you!
hahaha I was gonna post that!
While he is leaning quite a bit, it’s not as much as it appears to be. If you notice, the photo wasn’t taken straight, if you will. Look at how the entire photo is leaning to our left, making it appear as if he’s leaning even more. All of the trees, the ground…the picture was definitely taken with the camera at a skewed angle.
Woah. The guy is my teacher. 😀 ima show this to him tomorrow. 🙂
Isn’t that the “Christian Side-Hug?”
How do we know that he is the one that is leaning? Maybe is standing up straight,
and all the rest of us are leaning? All a matter of prespective.
Come to think of it: We could be all leaning
Is this guy “on the level” with her?
Can’t you see the poor man is stuck in a trench and gamely gritting his teeth to hide his agony. He’s a bespectactled legend!
Did they “photoshop out” the kids?
They used that new CS5 feature that takes out complete objects.
the photographer probably wanted to fit everything into the shot and he thought squatting down would make him look funny
yes, I’m guessing this had something to do with being able to fit the whole bodies in, not being able to stand farther back and having a longer than desirable lens for the shot. This seems to be an unsuccessful, though creative, attempt at making it work in those circumstances. Well, sometimes you don’t know until you try. Kudos for trying!
I crash into you…..
Ah, yes, this is clearly a man in love!
One hour before the photo: “Honey, I’ve decided to wear my flouncy pink, printed skirt and tailored aqua jacket, so you need to wear your funeral outfit with a bright yellow shirt. Of course with your black and gold tie. Don’t forget to button ALL the way up, so your coat won’t flap open when you lean in toward the tree like the Tower of Pisa.”
One minute before the photo: “I told you to use the men’s room before we left.”
what we’re not seeing hidden in the grass is the pile of manure he doesn’t want to step in.
That comment…so simple but made me totally burst out laughing at work :o)
Wonder why he rejected the obvious solution of leaning in from behind? What a rebel!!!
Plus, I think the woman’s right foot, the one against the tree, has an ace bandage on it so maybe he’s keeping his feet away so as to not step on her uninjured foot.
My husband is taller than me and he’s tried to be smooth for “fancy” pictures like this. We always end up sitting…LOL
Me too – there’s few standing up shots where you see more than my head and shoulders. Most of our couple shots are either sitting down or me on tippy toes.
I really think the man is extremely self conscious of his height. This is an attempt to lower himself to the womans height. He’s probably not even aware he’s doing this.
Looks like they are on an incline! I’m with Michele, makes me dizzy! 🙂
Her name must be “Eileen”
I believe her full name is Eileen Dover.
LMBO…Good one!! (:
They look SO familiar. Where are they from?
I was thinking the same exact thing!
I was thinking the same thing! I feel like I have seen these people somewhere- I’m in NC, where are you guys?
I was thinking that, too! She looks really familiar.
They live in Texas. The guy is a teacher of mine. 🙂
Darn…I could have sworn I knew him, too.
oh my God its mr ramsey hahhahahahhahahahhahahaha
Where in Texas??? I’m a teacher in Texas and he is so FAMILIAR!!! I live in the DFW/Arlington area!
He teaches at liberty christian so does his wife and i go there as well
I feel dizzy just looking at this picture.
He’s probably really tall and was trying, in his own creative way, to bridge the height gap for the photo. Or his feet didn’t move when the photographer said to come closer for the picture.
That is my thought exactly. A little more crafty than her standing on something 🙂
I think this is an angle he considers “jaunty.”
Looks like he didn’t want to muss his “Sunday going to church” clothes by actually touching his wife.
Elspeth was already regretting accepting PegLegPete’s proposal. Knowing his wooden leg was susceptable to termites woudl have put a whole different slant on things, her being a spinster on the shelf notwithstanding.
HAHAHAHA +1 internet for you xD
A car full of clowns is going to drive through that gap any minute!
Hi, I’m Ben Dover and this is my wife Eileen.
TOTAL epic win!!!
Love you Tim S !
