November seems to be Amelia Island month for Deremer Studios. We recently spent the afternoon in Dwotown Amelia Island, photographing the annual Petanque American Open. The sport, similar to bocce ball, revolves around two teams throwing hollow metals balls (boules) toward a small wooden ball (the piglet). A point is given for each ball that is closer to the piglet than the competitor’s closest ball. The first team to 13 points wins.
The event attracted teams from all over the United States and throughout the world – with teams traveling from Europe and even Madagascar to compete in this event. Below are some of our favorite shots from the day – enjoy!
