Chinese Chess

I love shooting the people playing Chinese chess at Kreta Ayer market in Chinatown. These two were shot last weekend when I made a quick trip there. Shot with Leica M9 and Zeiss Planar 50mm ZM f/2 lens.

On a separate topic, I just received the new Olympus E-P3 from Olympus Singapore. This is the latest Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus that was just announced late last month. The camera is on loan from Olympus for me to use for couple of weeks. As you all know, I am a big fan of Micro Four Thirds camera. Will be interesting to compare the new Olympus E-P3 with my Panasonic GF1. I will post the photos taken with the camera soon.

    Hi Hendra,

    Just stumbled upon your website. Some very inspirational stuff! The second shot of the chess players is my favourite. It’s a great place to take photos. I have 1 or 2 similar shots that I took a few years ago.
