I am a keen amateur, and have been lucky enough to have been published in the books "Dusty Warriors’ and ‘Op.Snakebite’. I’m currently using a 5d mk2, 24-105L,50 1.4, 50 1.8, 580EX2, 2x 420EX,st-e2, amongst other bits and pieces.
This speaks volumes! Brilliant candid shot of someone totally engrossed in his letter, a side of war you rarely see!
This image does speak volumes I agree with hippy Di….superb lighting in this image too…anna : )
This is very powerful. My boyfriend is in there now, and I love your images…especially the story this one tells. Wonderful.
Every picture tells a story and this one certainly does, thanks for sharing it xxxx
You have captured a great personal ‘moment’ here Phillip…the expression on his face as he is reading …the tone, lighting and the way he is sitting with leg crossed over…excellent!
Excellent image and a wonderful side to the war we rarely think of. Letters from home have always served a huge role in boosting the moral of our soldiers throughout all wars and I hope people still realise this. You don’t need to know anyone fighting in our war zones, just write a letter and send it or a parcel – the boys and girls love them.
Simply brilliant shot :)
