Guardsman Keeping Eyes Closed

Guardsman closing eyes in Martyrs' Shrine

The guardsman stood in front of the gate

Shot at Martyrs' Shrine in Taipei, Taiwan.

A guardsman wearing a helmet was standing at the entrance of the shrine. As a matter of duty, he couldn't move an inch. So it was impossible for him to wipe away the sweat during the duty. Even though I held my camera and focused on him, he stayed motionless.

The only part he could move was his eyelids. Yet he kept closing his eyes as if he was thinking about something. I was worried he couldn't move just in case, while he closed his eyes.
