An Arbiter's Photos

For this current edition of Flickr Friday, I could have chosen a more interesting photo -- life scene 1338, chess knight on board, for example -- but this morning I just happened to discover the site of the same photographer, Greek Chess photos ('photos from a Greek chess arbiter'). I took that as a sign.

Karpidis, who gives his real name as Andreas Kontokanis, is somewhat unusual for Flickr photographers who upload dozens (or even hundreds) of portraits at the same time in that he takes the time to identify his subjects by name. For more of his work, see Girls play chess.
