Public chess game in Shanghai, Shanghai Old Street, Canon F1 85mm Rollei 200

I was enjoying a research evening walk in Shanghai a few months ago, in an area called Shanghai Old Street (上海老街). Carrying a Canon F1 was painfully heavy, I brought along a 85mm f1.2 lens and that added weight, my body screamed "What the fxxk, you are carrying this weight for the whole day and you haven't shoot a thing".


Well, when the moment was right, I saw a lovely socializing chess game going on in a public area and I pulled out my camera. They were so happy laughing, one guy lost and another guy jumped in to the game, so I took photos of the scene and everything around it. Happy moment for me, got to remember how they enjoyed their game and how I should enjoy my own gameS.
