Man Playing Chess

Man playing chess

The man watched the board seriously

Shot in Central Yangon, Myanmar.

The man in this photo was playing chess with his friends by the wayside. Keeping sitting cross-legged, he was making a move with a serious look. Some pieces in hand were put in front of him. So he seemed to gain an advantage. Somehow he's bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Although there were many Chinese settlements in Yangon, I didn't see any men playing Xiangqi, Chinese chess. Maybe the situation was formed as a result of British rule.
