Kings of California

Tyler Fraser is a photographer who posts his stuff at Kings of California.

His subjects are the chess players at public tables throughout California. Here are a few of my favorites:

Seriously, let's look at the pic just above. What do we have here?

Illegal gambling? Check.
Suspicious police officer? Check.
Make-shift chess table six inches from a major street? Check.
The Bible held together by some duct tape? Check.
Cut-off jeans that are way too short? Check.

Take some time to check out the pictures...they tell some great stories.

Great job, Tyler!

There are so many good people working for chess. Our time will come.

These photos are really nice. I especially dig the san francisco pics. It's too bad they moved the tables from fifth street, now they're closer to sixth street and no one plays there any more.
