When boredom sets it

Today’s post is just a little bit of fun on my behalf, for the past few days we have been waiting around for a lift to our next location, waiting for the next part on our adventures. There seem to be more delays than British rail.

With all the time on our hands, there is only so much you can get up to especially when the sun is beating down upon us. With the heat now well into the 30 degrees plus mark, sometimes the boredom and heat create the urge to lay down and bring upon a few mins sleep. The time to close your eyes is my opportunity to grab the camera and snap away, so as you can see from the only slightly edited image, this young soldiers sleep made a great photo opportunity for me.

So be warned all those that succumb to the effects of the heat and sleep, I’m waiting for you and so is my camera.

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.
