Amy’s in the hot seat with this weeks challenge with the theme of Everyday moments, and she’s following in Monet’s footsteps in the Dutch countryside. It looks pretty wonderful too.
I’m closer to home, my local park, where on summer days people in their whites gather to play bowls. I can remember seeing them when I was at infant school, I always wanted to run across the impossibly smooth and green lawn.
Heavitree park was created in 1906, I suspect the slow, graceful game has been played there since the beginning.

This photo is more like Impressionism, Gilly! It looks like an interesting game.
When we were there, I did wonder if we saw what Monet did. 🙂
Thank you so much for join the Everyday Moments theme.
Yes I had a dabble with an app on my tablet and got what I wanted, thank you!
Looks like an interesting pastime!
I used to be very much something that the elderly played but younger people seem to be joining in now!
That’s a good thing….to see traditions passed on.
Fun choice Gilly – love to think it’s been quite the same since Monet’s time!
Great response to the challenge, Gilly!
A lovely photo of an everyday thing.
That really is an everyday moment that has changed little (apart from possibly dress code) for a long time. I can remember as a kid saying they were playing old men’s marbles.
You have made that look like a beautiful painting
I love the impressionistic effects on the photo, Gilly. It makes it look so nostalgic. 🙂
I was thinking that grass looked a bit shaggy for bowls, Gilly. Then I realised it was an effect. Always a bit slow on the uptake 🙂 🙂 Have a wonderful week, lovely!
Beautiful effects and a lovely image of an everyday moment.
