What I enjoyed about shooting the chess players that day was that they stay in the same place, they ignore you, there is interaction, there are tonal contrasts....all the obvious. And you don't find any in a small town in Connecticut. In fact, it is rare that you see anyone sitting. Everyone is doing something or going somewhere. And this reminds me to do some sitting around this summer and wait for the pix to come to me. The population triples in the summer, a good thing for me, because I can walk the length of Main Street and see a total of 3 people and one dog.


I worked ten years in Harvared square and every afternoon after work I would go play chess get to know the charactors and show up with my camera. Being one of the players really helped with being accepted with the camera and I must have about a billion shots of the chess players charactors hangers on and other harvard square regulars from the "pit" in front of the subway entrance to the "pain" where the chess players are. Your image is nice and very similar to many I took.

As both kings are off the board I am guessing chess lesson.\
