Chess on the Streets of Amsterdam


The last few days I've been going through photos of my trip last fall to Europe. I'm putting together an iPhoto book specifically of photos from the Switzerland portion of the trip. But somehow I strayed into the Amsterdam photos, and this one caught my eye. I remember exactly when I took it. We had just had lunch at Wagamama and came across this group of people playing chess on the streets of Amsterdam. I wanted a photo, but I didn't want to make people nervous. So I snapped just one photo as quickly and discretely as possible. I wasn't expecting anything fantastic, but I'm happy to have captured a little slice of life on the streets. And, I have to say that I think that guy's Puma bag is pretty cool.

Hey I remember seeing a chess board like that somewhere...just can't remember where.


very cool photo. You can see them all thinking which move to make.


I wonder what happens if they don't get their game finished in one day...looks like they take it too seriously to just abandon it. Great shot!
