Elephant ears prompted this photo but didn’t make it into the final cut. I met the two men while they were buying several of the pastries from a vendor at the State Fair. But once we started taking pictures — and the kids joined us — mugging for the camera became much more interesting than elephant ears. The two men are cousins. Their families, some pictured and some not, are adorable. You might recognize the man on the left; he’s a nine-year veteran of the NBA.
