I fret. I fret a lot over my blogs. I worry about the quality of my photographs, or if I'm boring my dear readers when I post too many photographs on the same subject/theme ...... like pétanque. This is what I've decided ( for the moment). When I'm lucky enough to get to Paris, I photograph what pleases my eye, makes me laugh or stand in awe, or evokes a memory I don't ever want to forget. Getting to know and photograph the pétanque players at Luxembourg Gardens continues to be an experience I want to revisit each trip. Watching the diverse group of players and spectators, never ceases to delight. For me as a bystander ( not to mention a foreigner) watching these men doing what they love everyday, is like being invited into the "inner circle" of Parisian life. I hope you understand.
