What a way to be 40

Well, I thought I would share my special day with you all, today is my 40th birthday and I know that all of you reading this will be thinking to yourselves ‘he doesn’t even look 40, maybe around 30’ or that’s what I’m hoping you all will be thinking?

So what to do as a way of celebrating my one and only 40th birthday whilst out here in Afghanistan, well nothing, it’s just another day out here so I will save the celebrations for once I get home. For now it’s back to work, more sand, maybe a spot of sunbathing and a glass of warm water.

Happy birthday me and if you all do decide to leave a message on here, then a big thank you from me. I will post some next day recovering from the party type images.

Regards a young 40 year old Rob.


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.
