Once, on my way home, I stopped at McDonalds to have some snack. And there I saw a girl who was waiting for her mother to bring some food to her. The girl's expression of being bored was so vivid that I could not help but take a picture of her. And here it is - a portrait of boredom.

Very good portrait. Great sense of observation and the readiness to snap a photograph! The theme is so clear and visible - and B&W form adds so good here.
My sincere pleasure to nominate this photograph!
