Eight Blue Bowls

Not the bowls you eat out of, but lawn bowls, the sport I play (it’s a British Commonwealth thing and generally a summer pastime).

This was earlier in the month, when my fours team , just coincidentally mind, played with blue bowls(two per player in that format).

So pretty I had to take picture!

That was about as pretty and together as it got –¬†our play that day was distinctly average…

(PS: The pair on the left with the bat motif are mine)

Eight & Eight Is

Today’s mystery pic is a view upwards in a chamber in the Scottish National Gallery.

Eight segments in the skylight; eight Grecian-inspired plinths .

Symmetry of numbers.

It always gets me, to show that there is some sense of order in our crazy, supposedly random world.

(The title to this blog is an unashamed pilfering of the name of a 1966 song by psychedelic rock mavens Love, “Seven & Seven Is”. I love Love!)
