Nice Chess Photos to Brighten Up Your Day

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hello everyone,

Chess photos are just so special. They say so much and always leave you wondering about the people who are playing chess. You imagine stories about what kind of people they must be and what joy must have they found playing the game. You wonder sometimes what happened to their game as well... did they win? And, how did they react? Just two nice chess photos to brighten up your day and get you dreaming.

Ozzy McDaniel, 5, of Hilliard, makes a move on the giant chess board at Columbus Commons. Ozzy was at the Downtown park yesterday with sister Mattea, 7, brother Shamus, 2, and the Carnes children, Cali, 5, and Camryn, 6. The kids’ mothers, Rachael McDaniel and Julia Carnes, home-school their families and get together regularly for recess. Also yesterday, a luncheon for the Columbus Foundation was the first event on the park’s Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion stage. Photo: The Columbus Dispatch

‘The game of chess as a metaphor for love ritual, permeates the culture of the late Middle Ages in literature as in the figurative arts. One of the most attractive examples of this craze is offered by the stained glass of the fifteenth century. Photo: Miss Folly/Tumblr.

If you have a special chess photo, print, or painting, don't forget to share it with us!
