Singapore : Chinatown : Chess players

Chess players

[Anglais] There is a place in Chinatown, outside of the Chinatown Food Complex,  where you can see old folks playing chess and checkers. It is always a good opportunity for photography. I have many shots of the place and the players with various cameras taken on other days, but that day I had the manual focus 50mmF1.4/S non AI lens on the D80. Non AI lens do non mount on the D80, but I have filled that one so it can be mounted. The light meter is not working, but a couple of test shots and look at the histograms does the trick.

[French] Il y a un endroit dans Chinatown, devant le Chinatown Food Complex,  où des hommes,  agés pour la pluspart jouent aux dames ou aux echecs.  C’est toujours une bonne occasion pour faire des photos. J’ai plusieurs photos de cet endroit et des joueurs avec des appareils photos divers selon ce que j’ai avec moi sur, ce jours là j’avais mis un objectif Nikkor 50mmF1.4/S non AI lens sur le D80. Les objectifs non AI ne peuvent pas s emonter sur le D80, mais j’ai limé un morceau de celui là pour pouvoir le monter. La mesure de lumière du boitier ne marche pas, mais un ou deux essais avec un oeil sur les histogrammes et le tour est joué.
