I found this amazing chess board while shooting the Gold Lounge in the Fairmont Tremblant. Watch tomorrow – I will be posting a detailed travel article on what it’s like to travel to the Mont Tremblant region and specifically on staying at the Fairmont. It will be full of great photos! It’s the little details like this that I love. This beautifully crafted chess board with wonderful window light streaming over it was the true gold on that level for a photographer. There’s something wonderfully evocative about the familiar shapes of the chess pieces, and perhaps some of you have subconsciously started planning your moves just seeing the board! P.S. The Canon 35L II is expensive (probably too expensive), but shots like this remind me of why I was willing to spend the money to get it. What a special lens!
