  3. Lovely spot. I hope someday you do see someone playing and that you'll have your camera with you at the time.

  5. And on second look, I should say rectangles and hexagons, too...and a diamond if you want to count the angle of the chess table...

  6. I remember a time where most of the streets where I lived in Manchester were cobbled! In summer the pitch between the cobbles used to bubble up and as children we'd pop the bubbles with lolly sticks. Mother wasn't pleased when we arrived home with pitch all over our white socks!

  7. I remember when I was a child growing up in Manchester all the street were cobbled. In summer the pitch between the cobbles would melt and bubble up and we would pop the bubbles with lolly sticks. Mother wasn't pleased when we got pitch all over our white socks.

  9. Maybe because the benches don't look very inviting. I love the shot, though.

    Psssst...Danny's is open!

  10. What a neat place to sit in the shadows and people or bird watch.

  11. So much cool in this shot -- from the monotones to the shadows and the different shapes in the stones and pavers. Nicely done.

  13. Wonderful shadows! That would be a fun place to meet and play. Have checkers will travel. :) (or chessmen)

  14. Looks like a great spot to sit and play. Someday you might just happen upon someone. :)

  15. Great cobblestones Daryl, but there are so many more fantastic elements to this image than the cobblestones alone. Excellent shot. Hope that you're having a good weekend, look forward to your Monday 'blathering' haha!

  18. No one has ever played chess or checkers there? Really? And here I was, picturing two old gentlemen in berets contemplating their next moves...

  19. maybe if the benches were more comfortable more might play but whatever the angles here are wonderful.

  20. Love the cobblestone. There's a place in Amsterdam near where we stay that they have a chessboard on the walkway and 3 foot pawns ... people are always playing and a crowd is always around. They start in the morning and still at it in the evening!

  21. I can't help but notice that while the game board is permanent, the chess or checker pieces are not!

  25. Cobblestones are so enchanting! I always think of medieval days and carriages and long dresses! Not sure why! And love this outdoor chess table!

    Apologies for being so late! I have had a rough week of flu, so blog visiting has been limited to small journeys!
