Looking through the Bored Couples photo series, I have to wonder if these concepts will resonate with those who are in relationships right now. I will admit, however, that it did make me try to recollect all the times I was caught bored with my significant other.

Photographed by Martin Parr, the Bored Couples photo series doesn't mean to focus on one negative aspect of a relationship. Instead, it centers around an inevitable ordinariness. Everything single moment spent with one's partner can't always be exciting and that's what this series shows.

A fantastic concept, the Bored Couples photo series is, at the end of the day, a fun and stealthy shoot. But as Life Lounge points out, "Timing is everything." These Bored Couples may be on the verge of some serious laughter. Stats for Bored Couples Photography Trending: Older & Buzzing
