Photographer's Note

It is a cliché that the Russians are fond of chess. It is also a truism. This is a quiet spring afternoon (rather chilly for my taste) in the Tauride Gardens which is one of St. Petersburg's many city parks. On other benches there were mothers watching their children play or office workers enjoying a quick sandwich in the park. But these three gentlemen were so utterly absorbed by their game of chess that I could probably have walked up and shot the position of the pieces on the board. But I didn't, so I can't say who won.
I cropped and resized for the web, no other postprocessing.
