Chess Players

(Washington, DC) I am always amazed (as a Midwestern rube) to visit places in which culture abounds. Pictured on the left are a pair of chess players at DC's Dupont Circle, each consumed by the plotting of moves in light of the anticipated moves of his opponent.

Dupont Circle is filled with these public chessboards, and games continue in almost all weather. Some of the matches get quite heated, and I observed quite a few players who were so far beyond my novice skill level as to seem superhuman.
