Bereft of pieces and of players and onlookers,
this chessboard on the Prom at Folkestone
was, not surprisingly, as deserted as the town
itself on this freezing day in November.
Folkestone seems to have gone downhill
somewhat, losing heart since losing its port
and its daily links to the Continent due to
competition from Dover, and with much of the
cross-channel ferry business now being taken
by Eurotunnel. Nevertheless, I believe there
are (or were) plans afoot to revitalise this
area that was once a throbbing South Coast
resort during Victorian times and historically
was an important link to France during WW1
for the repatriation of the wounded from the
Western Front.
Perhaps if I’d taken this picture in July,
I wouldn’t have been able to see the chessboard for the crowd! The picture is a
composite, taken in infra-red: the sky you see here was just off slightly to the left, so I
took two exposures and moved the sky to where I wanted it. It’s only a very slight cheat,
but much improves the picture. And as the famous American landscape photographer
Ansel Adams was wont to say, you don’t take a picture, you make it.

The mount could be slightly bigger, but the black frame works well.
