We have managed to establish an internet connection of sorts so I've managed a click-and-run and a couple of comments.
Just to lower the tone in time for the week-end, here's a light-hearted encounter with a pointing finger and some competitors in a bowls tournament, Great Yarmouth.

Do follow the link for an explanation – if you dare Grin Wink

I know this place and last time I was there we suffered a plague of ladybirds. An interesting well captured candid.

A game I rarely watch but it has a huge following across the world. I've heard that music many times in he middle of the night, I wonder why???

I'll be hearing it all day now, Cheers Bill.

I could tell you some stories about the Bowls mafia who used to terrorise all and sundry in the Ward I represented as a Councillor! Never assume that these guys are genteel and benign. Instead be afraid, be very very afraid! The pointing finger is a clue here. Nice capture.

I smile at the man on the left - caught in mid movement no doubt, but he reminds me of Tony getting up from a chair - which he seems to do in two parts these days - this far up and he needs a break before doing the second part of the movement - so I think bowls would suit him well WinkWink

When they make bowls a 'contact sport' I might think of taking it up!

Can't help but compare them with the men taking part in the local boules tournament when we were in Brittany. They take it just a seriously - but no white coats.
A splendid shot.

It's funny that - we had an AV competition a couple of weeks back at the Camera Club, and our Secretary submitted a show of weird digital manipulations and used this song!
A great candid shot, Bill, and the chap in the middle pointing really makes this work Wink

They got a bowls club even here, the only one in France. I think they got one French member. All the others taken themselves extremely serious and look exactly like those in your shot, apart from the ladies Smile

Seems like a bit of discussion going on here Bill.
I hope it is not about any underhand tactics !!
And dare I suggest,
I think this would make a rather fine mono ''sporty'' image !!

Now listen here Billy-Boy this is a game not to be knocked as it is played by mainly T'old folk who at that certain age need exercise and companionship, a good green and a drop of good ale in the clubhouse at the end of the roll-up.
