Today I was in downtown Kitchener looking into some stories. I spent about an hour with a group of seniors that play chess with each other every afternoon, 5 days a week. It was a whole lot of fun. They were easy to shoot and didn’t feel the pressure from having a camera in front of them. It was great that they didn’t kick me out from all the noise that was coming from my shutter. It got kinda interesting at one point. This one old guy had won about 5 games in a row, by about…one or two moves and one of the guys steps in and says, ” Ok!! Im gunna put 260 bucks on you to lose the next game”. The result was a win and the guy’s face went white and I think it was all the money this guy had. I felt bad.

This photo is of the guy that won the $260.
