You must be very focussed

Score of the game from one to twelve.

The players of the petanque game build teams and play for about one hours to fetch the twelve points to win.

To play petanque at this level this men do you need to practice a lot. Some are able to hit another boule 8 to 10 meter away with a success rate of 90%. This sport does require a good eye, beeing focussed and super relaxed.

I captured this moments at a sunny afternoon in Bastia, Corse. I stayed at the field for more than an hour to study the petanque game and the highly developed skills of the participants. Before doing that I asked for permission to stay there and make photographs. I tried to not get in the way and was permitted to stay. See the slideshow with my outcome. If the slideshow does not start klick the photograph.
