Bored Couples.

Friday, October 18, 2013

Martin Parr's photographs of bored couples need no explanation, and no introduction. Those eyes, those faces - and that very harsh lighting - speak for themselves.


The third one down is priceless. Visit Martin Parr's website, here. More at Magnum Photos

Also, three more links, just because:
-The world's fluffiest bunny.
-An "oddly poetic" army literacy test
-"Being ashamed of your past is absolutely insane." Agreed.

Have a wonderful weekend! What are your plans? I'm still recovering from last weekend's trip - looking forward to powering down for a quieter one this week!

hahahahahahaha. this is just.so.great! and i want to attempt wrapping my arms around that fluffy bunny!

Loulou said...

Haha, those sure are funny pictures! After almost 14 years of marriage, I wonder what Nick and I look like to others, when we're out and about. Often he walks ahead of me because it's easier to walk on the narrow sidewalks single file, and I imagine that must look like we're too bored of one another to bother walking together! Lol.

And how about that fluffy rabit?! Wow.

Nicole & Kathy, my roommate and I were just talking about how much we'd love to have him as a cushion in our living room.

Loulou, it's nice to know that it's possible these couples just APPEAR to be bored :)

Lauren Knight said...

These pictures are so great. You know what? I totally prefer seeing two people at a restaurant looking bored than two people at a restaurant on their separate "devices." And that bunny! Ahhhhh!!!!

oh my gosh, hilarious! I bet taking the photos today would involve a lot of iphone usage. that's what i see couples doing rather than talk to each other.

Shoko said...

Lauren, I totally agree!
