Chubby Checker - The Twist [youtube.com]

Believe it or not, back in my high school days I actually had a bit of the ‘practical’ arts in me. I don't think I really ever put it to any good use, but I found this old checker/chess board the other day while ‘Spring Cleaning.’ It's about 20“x20” and it is made from ‘Oak’ and ‘Mahogany.’ While it's true you would get a better idea that this is wood if I had kept the image in colour; I think it just works better in black and white. Cheers.

Awesome pic! Really cool choice of patterns. The checker board almost looks superimposed against the pattern of the cloth. Really neat composition and well executed!

That is neat. I confess that I would have no idea how to build something like this. But I love to learn ...

I am suffering vertigo today...and this shot is making me crazily dizzy. :) It's amazing how an image can "move", isn't it? Good work!

Interest image. Quite arresting. Even more than the title of your post, if only because "widdle" is a children's word in UK English for pee.
Expect a deluge (so to speak) of comments from us Brits.
