Witness silence strictly maintained ensures a serious chess game because nothing disturbs the players making their best moves.
I was just strolling inside the mall when I noticed five old men sitting around a table two of them busy playing serious chess and the rest silently eyeballing the moves being careful not to interfere or disturb them. It was then that I decided to capture the event however, realizing that doing so may disturb everyone I walked a bit more to quickly take the shot.
As you can see there was also a card game going on between two other men at the adjacent table far behind the “chess masters” meanwhile, I was oblivious to another man sitting at a table nearest me eyeballing what I was doing.
On the left, at another table directly behind him , two other men were probably playing cards also while a lady, her back to the chess game, sat alone while another lady carrying a shopping bag passed the entrance to the local Winners store.
This my contribution to WP single word prompt:”SILENCE”.
