Pétanque?



Jardin du Luxembourg


Rather than an intense game of Pétanque among the masters of the game,
it appears that I found them taking a break.

Petanque? Pourquoi pas? Especially when the game is as relaxed as this! :~}

Must be hard work ;) Looks like they're having fun. And the photo is very nice as a black and white, I think!

Hello Genie:
So wonderfully typical!

Malyss said...

If they already played all morning long, they can be tired! Or is it nap time ?..:)

Joe said...

Wonderful capture Genie. The guy second from the left is getting some serious zzzzzzz's.

Peter Olson said...

Pétanque is such an exhausting game! :-)

M said...

I think even the boules look exhausted!

Virginia said...

Time out! They work hard so a rest is necessary!

... and a snooze. It must be a very tiring game.

I agree with Joe. But is he napping or eyeing that last play?

Lisa Graham Art said...

I have never heard of that game. The guy sleeping is cracking me up!

What a great capture!

I believe one of the men was so relaxed taking a break that he fell asleep in his chair! HAH

This looks like an interesting game to me. :)

Yes it is hard work, you have to stand and move your arm and than sit for half an hour to take a rest for all the effort.

It's important to rest after vigorous exercise!

Mary said...

Ah.. a rest from the fun game with maybe some fun conversation. :) They know how to relax and enjoy themselves.

The portly guy -- second from the left -- is inspecting his eyelids!
