Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

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.

Not what I intended

Jude’s photo of oats earlier today reminded me of the seed heads I collected a couple of weeks ago, in the fields. I’d gone out without even a phone to take photos, so I took some home, planning to post them here, so that one of you clever people could identify for me.

So I dug them out, looked forĀ  a spot to snap, and there was my hat.

Aren’t they pretty? but I still don’t know what they are!

 

Soft x three

It’s Tina’s turn to choose the theme for this weeks :Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, and her topic is Soft. She’s posted some very cute and soft farm animals from New York State, Scotland and Patagonia, my favourite is the highland cow!

She doesn’t mind how we interpret the theme, so I have three pics for you.

Soft snow on a soft cobweb.

One of my G-babies on a soft slide, she’s just had her fifth birthday!

And soft light in a soft, cloudy sky.

 

Time to Relax

I wish, but I do have next week off so perhaps there’s hope.

Meanwhile I think I’m just in time to joins the Lens Artist Challenge this week, where Amy has chosen Time to Relax as this weeks theme.

In June I had a day out with my friend Sue, a belated birthday treat for me. We went to Burrow Farm Garden in east Devon. There happened to be a wedding there that day and we saw several guests who’d arrived early enjoying the garden in full bloom. On family intrigued me, A mum, dad and their two children who seemed quite untogether and un- smiley considering the event.

Every so often we’d turn a corner and even just a few feet away it was as if we were invisible. Anyway at one point we spotted the dad relaxing.

I expect he would have been even more grumpy if he knew I’d snapped him.
