    Wonderful lighting! Can’t beat a chequered floor for b/w (wish my floors were that bright):)
    Excellent shot.

  • LOL…send us a picture of your floor and I’ll photoshop them to look just like these ;))

    For now, I’m staying above ground. I’m working myself up, to go underground…I hate it down there but will venture eventually
    …so many ‘photo opportunities’….

    Cool! I like how the guy on the right seems to trying to figure out what you are taking a picture of.

  • Thanks Jen :)) I get a lot of that….lol
    People are too suspicious ;)

    Nice lighting, looks great in B+W.
    Lovin yr B+W’s.

  • I’m trying the Photoshop CS3 demo…it’s making conversion to b/w much easier :))

    very nice – as soon as I saw the photo and your title, I thought I would have called it “pawns” or “peons”

    peons – derived from the Spanish peón (pe’on). It has a range of meanings but its primary usage is to describe laborers with little control over their employment conditions. – ain’t Wikipedia great :)
