I took this image because I love chess. Absolutely love it. I had my friend pose for the shot. I took the shot in his cabin because of the strong light coming through the windown. I wanted the cigarette in the shot because that is how chess used to be in the old days. I took the shot right around the time the towers were destroyed in NY; 9-11. There was a lot of talk on one of my favorite talk shows, (The Art Bell Show), about how you could see the face of the devil in the smoke as the towers fell. I wonder to myself if I would see anything in my shot, and sure enough, there is a ghost watching the play commence on the board. I did not edit this photo in any way. It was amazing enough for Art Bell to even mention on his show. How cool is that?
