Photohunt – Chipped

January 23, 2009
pawn

My love for chess started when I was in gradeschool. It is one of the games we played during PEHM class (Physical Education, Health and Music). Thinking of it now, its not really under any of them, being more of a mental game, chess can’t be classified for PE, though it will stress you as much as a physical game would. (Hmmm, maybe when it rains we are forced to play indoors, thats why). Back then I play chinese checkers much too and thats where I really excelled. In highschool, I played for the school as a representative.

I bought this glass pieces back in 2004 and has been with us since then, but just last year one pawn got chipped, and a bishop went missing, apparently taken home by a little boy who visited :D. I found the other chipped piece last week and decided I’d put them together, fortunately its also the perfect subject for today’s theme!

NB: I am exchanging links with fellow meme participants, please leave a note if you like to be listed on the sidebar under PH and kindly link back to this page. Thanks!

Happy weekend everyone!

  1. Great take. I too used to love to play chess. My father taught me how to play. And I thought I had arrived the minute he wanted to play chess with me. Just one of the many memories I have of my father who left this world far too soon, IMO.

  2. Great choice for this week’s theme. I wish I was a better chess player. Sadly I’m not that good. Happy weekend

  3. That’s really a beautiful chess set, too bad the one’s chipped and the other one is missing. My hubby loves chess too. Happy weekend!.

  4. My eldest daughter have chess as an alternative PE game when the weather is not good 🙂 Nice set too bad that had to happen 🙁

  5. these are the really nice glass chess set! i’m sorry it got chipped and the bishop gone missing… they are hard to replace.

  6. I am not a chess player, never learned the game…but that doesn’t stop me from being awed by the magnificent glass pieces you show! Absolutely gorgeous, chipped or not! Great for this weeks hunt! MY hunt is up please come and visit

  7. Great photo for this week. We have a glass set, but the pieces are frosted like your one and black glass for the opponent. They got chipped, broken and I think some pieces are missing now. The kids would play with it, but I think the missing piece just got lost and not accidentally borrowed.

    I like your meme link idea and started one for the Saturday Photo Hunt. I’ve linked to you. Have a great weekend 🙂

  8. i also have a glass chess set! i’m so afraid it would shatter into a million bits that the pieces remain in their box: they have never been used!

    have a great week ahead!

  9. LIKE YOUR CHESS SHOT I THINK YOU SHOULD INVEST IN A NEW SET GET A REAL FANCY ONE FROM SOMEWHERE THANKS HAVE A GREAT DAY
