SOMEWHERE, DON VITO IS SMILING.

EG Wow said...

But the courts are empty!

Halcyon said...

Funny! I've never seen actual courts for bocce ball.

Olivier said...

belle composition, mais il doit faire trop chaud pour que les joueurs sortent

I presume that the people who play all wear white outfits and white hats. If they enjoy lawn bowling, surely they must have a sense of style and decorum.

Beautiful and lovely shot Jacob !! Great post as always !!

Saretta said...

Hey! A little bit of Italy in Florida! Actually Molfetta's older gentlemen would probably drool to see such lovely courts! We have nothing like that here.

too sun

Forgive me, but although these are state-of-the-art courts, most bocce players (or petanque players) I see would chuckle at their perfection, preferring a more natural terrain!

I've heard about bocce but never saw anyone playing it. It seems to be very popular in Florida, given that I can count 3 courts in the photo.

I love bocce but we play it on the rolling lawn.

I can almost smell the 'spring' in this photo. Today it is going to be 76 here. The weather has been so spring like..... after 2-3 years of being robbed of summer, maybe we'll have one that makes up for it this year.

My great uncle Len used to play at Woodland Park in Seattle. I bet the greens aren't there any more. All those old men are gone to the great court in the sky. (Or something like that). MB

Lois said...

I would like to try that one day!

VP said...

Saretta is right, older guys here would like courts like these!

I don't even know what you're talking about but I do like the graphic effect of the composition!

Daryl said...

So wheresa all the excitement, wheresa all the goombahs?

bfarr said...

I have never seen (except in a movie) or played this game. It seems like shuffle board with a ball.

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - You're not the first one who told me I didn't know what I was talking about. Oh, wait...you said you didn't know what I was talking about. Well, other people have told me that, too! ;-))

Chuck Pefley said...

Wow, those are fancy bocce courts!
