Giant Chess at Place Émilie Gamelin

Although I’ve seen games of giant chess being played in Place Émilie-Gamelin before, I’ve never actually taken pictures before today. There are 4 boards available for anyone to play and all 4 this afternoon had a game in progress with some serious thinking taking place.

It’s been a long while since I’ve played chess but this looked like a fun way to spend some time on a warm afternoon. Made for a nice photo subject too.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
