“This week’s photo challenge is about perspective: post a photo which is not what it seems to be.”
Game Pieces– by Daniel Martinez, Renee Petropoulis, and Roger White
Public Art in front of Philadelphia Municipal Services Building.

The reflection of THE FIRST BANK OF THE UNITED STATES
The Actual Building – The First Bank of the United States. (where all the trouble began)

I did not realize that was a reflection. Great perspective.

The chess piece is perfect! I love that one the best.
Just visited Philly last weekend so it worked out fir posting. Thanks for stopping by and writing a nice comment.
Very cool perspectives. I’d love to participate in a game of human chess (an item for my “Beyond 101” list). 🙂 http://smilekiddo.wordpress.com/beyond-101/
That would be cool!
Once – I think it was when we were in Amsterdam, we saw people playing a giant chess game. Not an art piece, just a game. Our grandaughter was around 2 or 3, and she just jumped into the game and started hopping. Everyone was in shock, but then laughing because it was so innocent and cute!! Not sure if the players were too happy. Love your photos!!
Ruth – really enjoyed this post. Philadelphia is on my list of places to see – and it is actually a rather short list right now – with about a dozen places I really want to go – 😉
anyhow, enjoyed the game pieces art – and the different angles. Also the two takes on the 1st bank was clever. and by putting it first, I thought I was looking a building through some type of frame or screen….
Thanks for your nice comments today Yvette. I appreciate the visit and your taking time to write and let me know you enjoyed the post. Best,Ruth in Pittsburgh

You had me completely fooled, Ruth. Id no idea that the first photo of the bank was a reflection. That’s some perspective!
Thanks John. You know how I love to find those reflections. We had a hint of Spring and then when I woke up this AM it was white again. Just a coating. At least it melted. Hope you are seeing signs of Spring as well. Always appreciate your visit on the blog.

Both sets are perfect for the challenge Ruth! The chess piece, in isolation, is really misleading 🙂
these are both great, Ruth. that reflection is uncanny!
