"Heavens Temple" is situated at the South of Beijing, surrounded by "Tiantan Gongyuan Park", in the gardens people met to practice ping-pong, dance, play music, that is also done at the galleries where they also play all sort of table games like the one in the photo.
When I was there is was a week day and there was lots of people doing and enjoying lots of sport, music and games
I believe the reason is to left place to the young to work, in that way they have lots of spare time to spend but with few money, the "retired" people go to public spaces to met with friends or made new ones

Muy bien capturada esta escena de ocio en plena calle, donde se ve a los participantes muy concentrados en el juego.
Excelente encuadre y muy buenos detalles.

This scene represents peaceful atmosphere of the garden, where people can meet each other for socializing and recreation. A very well-balanced composition, excellent management of light and colors, a lot of interesting details, and perfect quality of the capture!

Una buena imagen que muestra una escena cotidiana de la calle, improvisado lugar para montar una partida de domino, un magnifico retrato de estos hombres que siguen con su partida ajenos al retrato.
Muy buena nitidez y colorido.
Disfruta del dia de Navidad con la familia.
Un a brazo.

A slice of life one, very real and just love this kind of picture. You have chosen just about the perfect viewpoint, approach and the focus when they are totally engrossed no eye contact and good animation . Tat's a fabulous image, beautifully illuminated and well treated, isolating the subjects without appearing contrived and the composition is just everything really. A real 'street scene' captured so beautifully. Well done. Congrats
