Chess Players

Chess Players - Leica M2, CV 35mm F.17

Eversince i got my Leica, i have been going to Chinatown more to take pictures. Since the streets there are pretty tight, i have been using a 35mm and a 21mm. But i prefer the 35mm more since i sort of “see” in a 35mm focal length.

Chinatown in Singapore has transformed mostly to a touristy kind of place but there are areas it retains much of it’s local flavour, like there is a large area inside Chinatown where lots of old man gather to play chess almost everyday. I wonder how long this will last, I guess that as my grandfathers generation slowly leaves this will become a rare sight.
