Three Muses Challenge 27 - Fun and Games

It's my turn to host the Three Muses challenge this week and I chose FUN AND GAMES as my theme.

Games, made me think of Chess, and so I populated my chessboard with not only chess pieces but also all manner of strange and outlandish images to create a surreal landscape, before allowing the chessboard to slowly slide into the sea. Great fun.

Credit goes to Urban Fairy, CAJoline and Efie.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

Fantastic surreal take on your great theme, Ann. I love the way you have your pieces tumbling off the slated board. You have even added a little piece of Australiana for me!! (Yes, I spotted the kangaroo lurking in the background). Great work.
