2.01 - "Needs Work" 

Shot in Bryant Park, NYC, this masters-level chess match pitted a well-dressed and calm-natured gentleman struggling against an outspoken park staff worker. Although the man on the right owned the table for close to an hour, the staff member was putting an end to it. He loudly announced, "I don't care what you do or what pieces of mine you take; you're done in five." Within five moves, the man in the suit found his king in checkmate. The staff member simply said "yeah" and left.

I appreciate that, Craig. I'm beginning to understand the difference between my storytelling photos versus those that tell their own stories. I prefer the former style.

Same than Craig, it became a cool shot after I read the description.
