A soldiers goodbye

Yeah yeah, I know you’re off to war, but you know you haven’t FED ME YET? 

This photo was taken during the Second World War as an Australian solider said goodbye to his wife before leaving. If you had a full view of the couple you would undoubtedly focus on their faces, but shot like this it’s a really interesting portrait of their body language (especially the photo below) and of Bobby their cat (who appears to be hungry). 

Cat’s eh? No sense of occasion, it just goes to show that some things never change! 

He’s obviously starting to get impatient in this photo (below):
