    You have taken me to the thoughts of the man in the centre of this image. I'm wondering if he's feeling sand arcoss the back of his hand and his wedding band; if he is thinking of his wife whose embrace he's rather have his face buried into instead of these smelly sandbags. Great composition Jeremiah
