Dominoes Anyone?

I found these interesting dominoes laid out on a game table at Bulloch Hall.  Not sure if these are ebony and bone that would have been the mark of a finely made game set or some kind of reproduction like bakelite.  Looking at the surface of the pieces, I would tend to think that these are the real thing.

One of the most intriguing parts about this set are the raised pins in the middle of the domino.  I assume this is to allow them to be easily stacked but it’s something that I had not seen before.  Once again, the world up-close is always showing me new things!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
