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.
