Analogue Day Activity: Challenge Someone in the Park for a Game of Chess

1

A walk in the park is always nice and refreshing. However, when you find yourself walking without a companion far too often, you have to admit that it can be a bit lonely. What’s a Lomographer to do?

How about challenge a fellow stranger to a classic game of chess?

Chess is one of the world’s most popular games. It can be played casually (which can finish in less than an hour) or in tournaments (which can last for hours). While the gameplay seems fairly simple – after all, you only have to know which piece moves — the strategy and tactics of the players is what makes the game so challenging yet enjoyable.

A testament to the game’s appeal is the fact that a lot of parks offer areas where people can gather and play chess — Some even have benches that have fixed chessboards in them! And let’s not get started with those gigantic boards that can fit human-sized chess pieces!

So take your set, and get ready to put on your best smile! Who knows? You just might earn yourself a new friend.

We wouldn’t want to end up like old man Geri right?

How do you make your life a little bit more analogue with each day’s passing? Aside from these Analogue Day Activities we’ve been sharing, why don’t you inspire your fellow lomographers as we inch closer to the worldwide Film Photography Day celebrations and share with us your own stories? Remember, you can also schedule your own meet-ups for the big event, show your analogue life through an awesome video, and profess your love for all things analogue with some of your best snaps!

    I'd love to give this a go but not in my town as unfortunately alot of those found in my local parks just tend to be drunken individuals who are more likely to steal or vanalise the chess board than play a game on it :(
