Street Art Spectators

Compare this photo with round two of the 2014 Candidates Tournament as shown in An Empty Arena. Maybe FIDE should consider decorating playing halls the way this one is decorated.

There isn't much info about where this photo was taken. The tags say only 'IFTTT' and 'Instagram'. Wikipedia tells us that the acronym IFTTT

is a web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called "recipes", which are triggered based on changes to other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, and Craigslist. IFTTT is an abbreviation of "If This Then That" (pronounced like "gift" without the "g"). An example "recipe" might consist of sending an e-mail message if the IFTTT user tweets using a certain hashtag.

A link with the photo points to an Instagram page, which helps to tie the two tags together. As for the venue, other photos from the same photographer indicate Kerala and the Maldive Islands, which is accurate enough for me.
