Header Challenge - Impressionist = by Kathy

IMPRESSIONIST is this weeks theme by Kathy for our Header Challenge.

First of all, Dave has left the Headbangers, due to other commitments - So we all wish him well and are sorry to lose you Dave - as you are a formidable player.
SO, we are now looking for 2 more Headbangers to join us, to make up the required 6 members.
If you like photography  and you think you are up to the Challenge - then please get in touch with any Headbanger.

Now to our challenge, My Header is the Japanese Bridge and water lily lake in Monets Garden, with a make over from PSE2.

The word Impressionist was taken from one of Monets paintings by the way he painted - so I guess that he was one of the first.
My Music and film show is from Monets Garden - so please just check it out.

Now - for my post - let me take you on a tour of his wonderful Gardens and Water lily Lake
Please follow me --------

Here's DW Julie, with the famous Japanese Bridge water Lily lake behind her of Claude Monet - the IMPRESSIONIST.

Now, please go and see what the other members have to show and  say about IMPRESSIONIST,
On my side bar - near my shield.
                                                        Good Luck.
