Festival of the Elements, Waitangi Day, Porirua City, February 6, 2012.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day which featured a wealth of experiences – the second largest Waitangi Day event in the country according to Nick Legget who opened the event. I really liked the skateboarding competition which drew huge crowds with young and old alike watching intently. Click on any of the photos to see more images from the day…

The bubble man was a crowd favorite - here a young boy spots a bubble to pop between himself and the lens
