I photographed a health event which was for the Wellington City Council yesterday. It was a health fair for residents of community housing. This particular area had a large Chinese population. It was a real treat to be a part of the community for the day and feel the mellow vibe of the residents.
I particularly liked the performances that were arranged for residents by members of the Wellington Chinese Senior Community. The choir and the Tai Chi demonstrations were really cool.
My sister and brother and law returned the same day from a trip to mainland China with stories and vivid descriptions of life there. It felt like a small prism into what they were describing earlier that morning.
This shot has a real blend of cultures and is in an environment that would not be typical for traditional Tai Chi practice. For that reason, I like it even more!
