The King.. by markyl

The King..

put loads of stuff in the loft yesterday but came across my old Chess set so bought it down and was surprised how much my 11 year old lad enjoyed it. Him and mum were playing for ages in front of a roaring log fire... was great to see :-)
Also playing with Depth Of Field..
I am so glad you blured out the pawn...
Great focus Mark..

We are studying this wonderful piece by Prokofiev at school and discovered that he started playing chess as a young boy and continued throughout his life. I wonder how much that influnenced his writing of this ballet. If your son likes him, you should also check out Peter and the Wolf - his most famous piece for kids.
