Letters from Home

The only thing that can keep us all sane and in touch with some sort of reality is the receipt of letters from friends, family or loved ones. Each word that is written is read over and over again, each word or sentence has a meaning, each letter a special place for those that receive them.

Although today we have the power of blogs, Internet, Facebook and emails, a letter still has the power to captivate the reader, each word has its own unique spell written into them.

Each letter from home is waited for with anticipation each day and welcomed with a smile. Every time I see someone receive a letter, you see their face smiling as they read it, letters still mean as much today as they did in years before the Internet and social media.

Regards Project Afghan.



About robgrimesphotography

Experienced and enthusiastic, I have a real passion for photography that I have gained over the years and that shines through in my pictures and my portfolio. I specialise in capturing those spontaneous moments that we otherwise could lose, either at your wedding or on a relaxed family shoot of your choice. I am always happy to talk about photography, so if you think I might be the right person to take your photographs then give me a ring to discuss your pictures, they are yours after all. Also a full time serving soldier in the Infantry in the British Army, but soon to be leaving the forces after Project Afghan finishes.

    Great article Rob, but I really wouldn’t post your home address in the picture! There are some nutters out there!

    Enjoying your posts – from one photographer to another.
