Chess on the Plaza


The other day while walking past the plaza I caught these guys taking some time for a game of chess. I would have rather been playing than on my way back to work.

It seems you do a lot of walking during lunch breaks and also see some interesting scenes.

EG CameraGirl said...

A game of chess does sound more appealing than returning to work, doesn't it? :)

Lynette said...

I do not know how to play chess. And if I sat on the grass I would need help getting up. But I realize this is a great thing to get to do and a great photo Randy. Thanks a lot!

Sharon said...

I don't blame you. They are concentrating on the game.

Cool capture!

Judy said...

Great capture! There is a guy here that sits on the plaza with his chess set waiting for someone to come along and want to play.

Appears to be some serious strategy happening!

At first glance, I thought your title used the word, "Chaos," instead of chess!

But this scene certainly isn't chaotic. I never learned how to play chess. It seem to move too slowly or maybe I'm just not smart enough. Probably the latter!

You don't see this too often. Most people these days are fixed on their phones or tablets. Nice change!

Cloudia said...

Nice shot good to see




Aloha, Randy

Nancy said...

You definitely captured the moment with this shot! Nice find.
