in the park, two
levels of waiting
each other –
a chess game
a veteran player
hard science future
Excellent answer to the weekly challenge of waiting!
thank you so much. i’m glad you enjoyed it – i see two levels of waiting here! (smile)
Great street photo. I love the way the guy is reading the chess book, and his hat with glasses perched on top. Brilliant.
thank you!! he was a perfect subject! (smile)
Really nice shot. Brilliant. 🙂
right time, right place! thank you.
Your Shot is always good 🙂
that’s so sweet – thank you for your dedicated support!
brilliant shot, and perfect for ‘waiting’
thank you for visiting – i appreciate it.
brilliant photograph yi-ching. I love the “two layers” of chess and Asimov. The shot is so well photographed and full of context.
thank you! i love the juxtaposition and really enjoyed shooting him from afar (smile).
Great photo. The comparison to Asimov is brilliant.
thank you so much for visiting and for the compliment. please feel free to subscribe for daily doses!
Wow, this was great. I love that you can see what he’s reading, and how perfectly in focus he is. Also, the guy behind him midstep is pretty great too, adds movement to an otherwise still piece.
thank you so much, Kaitlin.
🙂 I love it!
thank you for dropping by!!
a wonderful portrait, and a story, and a mood, and a moment…..
thanks for sharing
thank you for the thoughtful words.
nice selection for this weeks theme
thank you for dropping by and for your compliment!
He’s reading Asimov. He will win the chess match for sure.
(smile) for sure!
I gotta hit up Washington Sq park one of these days, haha
surprisingly, there is an intimacy to this photo that does not reflect Union Square at all, right? i also love Washington Square Park.
This is a very nice street portrait. I like the contrast of the chess man’s solitude compared with the frenetic pace of the people walking at the background.
yes, that’s cool to note! thank you!
they try to earn money finding a chess partner, isn’t it? I saw them in Washington Square, Manhattan …
oh, i didn’t know they took money. guess that makes sense. this was taken in Union Square, but there are certainly chess players in Washington Square as well (smile).
I like this picture very much. This is one of my chicken and the egg questions. What comes first; the love of chess or the love of Sci-fi? For a while, I played chess as a part of group that met at the local library. Most everyone shared a love for Sci-fi.
hmm…i never thought of that. i joined a chess club in middle school because our awesome science teacher started it.
Reblogged this on R/Ax Media Design and commented:
This is really spectacular. I love the depth and sincerity.
thank you so much for the shoutout!
So annoying to wait for another player which never comes 🙂
But I see that the guy is reading an Azimov book… And that’s a really good way of waiting 🙂
