It does look like a scene from a cemetery. Maybe it’s the bare trees in the background.
But it’s just the crystal chess set at Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall in Carnegie. A kind patron donated it, and it does look grand on the century old oak library table. It migrates around, but the building was built to catch as much light as possible from the tall windows, so even on a dark day like this, it reflects the light and casts interesting shadows on the table and on its own glass board.
