The World of Monet

20 Jun 2020 9:36AM   Views : 506 Unique : 379

Never mind critical sharpness, there are other ways to view the world and the diffuse, myopic view of Monet is one of them. Our visit to Monet's garden was beautiful, with gorgeous weather and the flowers in full, robust bloom. It is easy to see where his inspiration came from, and speaking for myself, short sighted as I am, easy to experience what he might have seen by taking off the glasses. I'm not sure that my style of photography often has much similarity to Monet, I produce quite different sorts of images, but I dabble. Whatever our style though, Monet's garden, the lane outside and small cafe, also outside the grounds, all add to the general ambience. The choice is clear though. Either queue for an hour to look inside Monet's home, or experience the joy of his garden. Let's have a look at the garden.

What a magnificent garden it is, so it can definitely be added to the places we should return to.
