Chess

I might be wrong, as such an outrage has been known to happen, but I don't think I posted this photo here before now (Leica M2, Summilux 50 ASPH, Ilford XP2 Super, ISO 800, Ilfotec HC, Hasselblad X1 scan):

My son had just left after a Christmas holiday at home during which I had refreshed his knowledge of chess and got out a set I cast from gypsum in the late 1970's. All the pieces are birds, and are coloured with black shoe polish, or just plain beeswax. I was sad that I had no one to play with. But the little tyke has just started playing long distance chess with me by text message. "Pawn to e4" came the message this morning. I'll show him who's boss: pawn to e5 was my reply. We'll see.

Beautiful chess set.

When I was a teen I played a lot. I even bought a custom set with it's own table and common ceramic pieces set. It was beautiful, like yours.

I hope you get many more years of enjoyment out of it.
