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

Ignorant of what the balls are for as they look metallic--maybe tennis?

a a well done capture that must have serious meaning!

A PM follows Jenn - which will hopefully outline the basics of Boules!

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.

Like this Ann the whole image is very pleasing to me. The detail so intricate i.e. fingerprints. Is that a reflection of you....

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

You move between styles and genres so easily Ann, your eye works in many ways, all of them good.
Lovely bold colour and detail in this observation.

Is this cropped?
