There are plenty of people to meet and photo opportunities to be had on FOB's. Especially walking around with a camera, I just sort of instigate conversation...most of the time in a direct manner like, who are you and what are you taking pictures of?
Here is an MP with their dog waiting for the CSM of the Army to arrive.
