Excellent. This is so much more than the sum of its parts, so evocative of France and one of its favourite pastimes.

The essence of life in the slow lane, French style. This is the 100% characteristic stance. I've seen it, watched, and I guess I must have felt too relaxed and drowsy because I've never got the camera out. Well done.

I like the variation.... pétanque.... very onomatopoeic. Excellent detail, Ann, but he's more likely to be left-handed if he's holding his balls in his right hand Tongue
