It was taken with Zorki4 camera, during my reserve service near GAZA strip only a month ago.

Hi Yaniv,

it's a really interesting series, what makes it quite fascinating is that the reserve duty looks quite fun and laid back - I guess that makes it seem very human. I like the shot above very much and it's got me thinking about the relationship between the two guys and wondering what the one in the foreground is looking at. I admire your skill with the old and quirky camera especially in those bright conditions. In the series in the link you posted I like the one from the shooting range a lot as well. In fact I like them all, but that one, I was most drawn to.

Thanks!
Reserve duty is half relaxed and funny (like summer camp with your friends) and part hard and very frustrating.
I even made a documentary about that:

Hey, thank you for posting that link - I enjoyed the documentary and think it shows the fun and frustration well.

It's only a trailer. You can find the complete documentary also on the net.
I'm happy you've find it interesting. I wanted to show that Israeli soldiers are human beings and not only as the media portray them.

All soldiers are human beings. I am sure of that!
