Does One Eat the Pawns You Capture?

Or is it good for several games?

Saw this chocolate board and chessmen when I visited NYC – Spring Break.

If you want one, they will make it for you, fresh!

Different Dollhouse Occupants- Simpsons Chess Set

When I was visiting my friend Donna (with the doll collection),  I was leaving and I noticed her granddaughter’s dollhouse and the occupants.

The SIMPSONS?  They are just the right size.

Her Uncle Tony’s chess set put to use.  She’d arranged them so neatly, all in a row.

(I didn’t even know there was a Simpsons Chess Set.)

Market Square Chess Game

Used the 70-200mm lens on my Canon 5D Mark ll.

I had to take the 5D into the Camera Repair Shop on Market Street.

One thing when I take a shot like this, I realize I’m not a persistent or aggressive or even comfortable street photographer.  

I remained unnoticed and now wish I had taken more angles as I think about it in retrospect.

One certainly wouldn’t want to interrupt  the intense concentration.
