Death Plays Chess

The thumbnail page for the set, Death plays chess (2010) - a set on Flickr, explains,

"Death Plays Chess" is a visual story in photographic art of the characters originally created by Ingmar Bergman for the film "The Seventh Seal". Every artwork examines precise details. Anything excessive has been eliminated in order to concentrate fully on the characters and the storyline. The simplicity of the images almost reaches a level of abstraction.

Your first challenge is to figure out which color you just picked. Is the Pawn White or is it Black?

By accident I saw my picture on your blog :)

I tried to post a comment, but it seems I didn't succeed... apparently :(

Anyways, I just wanted to express my regards and good luck trying to find out whether the pawn is black or white... :)
