Opening salvos

I loved the first match of 2019 Six Nations – France v Wales in Paris – What could be better?  And it was a remarkable game – and the old cliché ‘a game of two halves’ couldn’t be more apt.

This picture was made in the first few moments after kick-off, about five minutes in. I used a new brush pen as well as the usual one, which gives a stronger emphasis.

      1. If England play like they did in the first 2 games… (I don’t want to tempt fate!) I get unusually nervous watching England play. Maybe I should go out for a walk.
