Checkmate!

Page Street, Westminster

I would like, every Sunday, to share with you a picture of London. Do not expect big landmarks and well-known features. No, I am more interested in the details that make London what it is.

This one was taken on Page street, In Pimlico. It looks like a chessboard, doesn' it? For me, it is a checkmate: I am so not moving back to France! What about you, where do you stand on the chessboard?

  1. i'd probably be a bishop so I could move across the street diagonally, enjoying every little bit..

  2. And you could take the tower at the end of the street?

  3. I never had the patience for chess, but I wish I could have been the one taking this photo.

  4. I have played chess, but am not able to plan moves ahead. I think it requires a person to think 2 or 3 dimensionally, and I don't do that well. It is a cool picture. Thanks for sharing. Sally

  5. I like the erratic but potentially predictable moves of the Knight. Never say never and expect the unexpected so when it hits out at you with a left hook you can duck!
