A Couple of Chess Photos

It's been a rainy Saturday morning here in Sydney, so I thought I'd spend the time indoors post processing some photos from my Euro trip late last year. I came across a couple of shots with a chess theme. This one below was in Paris and it is, of course, Alekhine's grave.

It was in the Montparnasse Cemetery where a number of cultural and intellectual luminaries are also buried, including the likes of Baudelaire, Simone de Beauvoir, Durkheim and Cesar Vallejo.

And then there is this. Yes, the Lewis Chessmen, taken in the BM.
