Weekend at Porpe's

Posted by Rob Meronek on Monday, February 4, 2019

Jorge aka Porpe had a few people over for that one skull crushing spectacle they put on the television every year. I've been trying to get close with my camera again after several years of our relationship being on the rocks, so snapped a few. I also handed the camera over the the children for a while and got back some interesting perspective and results.

Apollo is Jorge's boy, in the thick of the terrific two's.

Kids love muscles. I think this is from when Sloane had the camera.

Every form of things with wheels goes on the ramp, even lawnmowers.

My wife Brittany is not really that much shorter than me. Funny how the angle on every toddler photo is do different than an adult's photos.

Jorge, thanks for hosting!
