Prison Chess #14

Sunday, April 26, 2009

A little update on the chess project

The visit at the prison Friday morning was fruitful. I took more pictures, and also brought some inmates their picture that I took during the previous event (which was in November last year). This was greatly appreciated and probably motivated some people to answer my questions.
Once I find more time to sit at home on my computer, I will put some things together and post them here.

Prison Chess

Today I will have the chance to complete my prison chess project.

Once again I will accompany a bunch of chess heroes from Princeton to a maximum security prison for another "book smarts vs. street smarts" battle.

I will try to talk to each player to have some text for each image.

Flying Windows

Spontaneous idea with a zoom lens last night. That's definitely something one could experiment with for a while.

Woman in Corner

I tried hard to come up with a title that would refer to the guy in front, but seriously, I have no idea what this person was or tried to show.

.com Domain

I'm thinking about making this page available through a .com URL. Something that sounds a bit more flashy and international than fluck.de - something like RogerWhittaker.com - but that's taken :)

If you have any good suggestions for me, let me know.
Yesterday I came up with LostInUrbanity.com, probably not a genius name, but I decided to register it. I have this web hosting package with Strato which is totally over the top for my needs. I just figured out I can register a certain number of domains without additional costs.

Don't let them fool ya!

The dates on my blog magically disappeared after the last template switch, but you can trust me, people will try to fool you today!

I just remembered a picture that kind of fits:

Probably my very first photography experiment. Taken in 2001 with a 2MP camera from Olympus. My dad bought this thing a couple of years earlier for 2,000 Deutsche Mark.

Wait a second...did you just read this? I think I'm old now. Once someone is a witness of totally outdated technology, bought for ridiculous prices in currencies that don't exist anymore, this person is officially old. That's how the word "old" should be defined in dictionaries.

About the image: I copied my picture into the image of an Adam Sandler movie poster using some funky software which probably doesn't exist anymore either.

Back in the days people used to tell me I look like Sandler, so I thought this is funny. Now I know it's not really funny at all. That's another great thing about getting older: you start noticing more things. When I'm two minutes older from now, I will probably notice how useless this post was :)
