POD: Chess Player

Henry has decided he likes chess. At first, I did not take him too seriously, because usually when he and I try to play games, he seems to have trouble with the rules. So, when he challenged me to a game, I thought this should be good. Well, not only did he know the rules, he reminded me of some I had forgotten. It’s been probably 30 years since I played a game, and Henry did very well. Of course I beat the crap out of him, but if he stays with it, he could be a strong chess player.


This shot is with the Leica SL and my Takumar 1.4/50 8E. The focus might be a bit off, but the vintage rendering of this lens is really nice.
