“Sharing tales of those we’ve lost is how we keep from really losing them.”
― Mitch Albom
One of the treasures my father left me is this beautiful chess set. As a child I used to look at them closely, admiring the fine details of this cast iron, the white players nickel plated and the black being copper plated, chess set.
I have no idea where he got them, only that he brought the set with him from Germany when he immigrated. In my imagination, they came from some old castle or a grand house where nobles used to play with them. An unlikely source, but part of the childhood memory.
Given the marvelous details, I thought they might make a nice subject to document with a photo. It’s also a chance to play with macros settings and lighting some more.
