Next Move.
Next Move. Taken July 17 2012 in Philadelphia, PA.

The owners of the hands in this image did not want to be photographed.

So the idea that I had in mind prior to composing the final image went out the window.

I was very frustrated.

I mean, how often do you see a group of black men playing chess outside a grocery store??

You don’t see that very often.

But you would have thought that I was the police walking up on them.

Like I said, I was very frustrated, but I guess you have to take what you can get.

  1. I can appreciate your problem – perhaps they should have been somewhere else! At one time I used to see people playing chess all over the place – not a lot, but in all sorts of places and situations (I even remember playing at lunch time at work). But I very rarely see anyone play now.
