Games (street) children play

board game on the sidewalk using bottle caps What looks like a checkers-like game with the board marked on the sidewalk and bottle caps as playing pieces. It was beside a restaurant, so it is probably played by watch-your-car-boys. Unfortunately, there is a big possibility that gambling is involved. Smoking definitely is.

A very thoughtful, moving image. Their need for hope, searching within games, surely can be felt.

It looks like they ran off mid-play.

Whatever game it is, it makes for a very pretty photo! Thanks for sharing the link to the "watch-your-car-boys". It was a beautiful and touching photo essay.
