Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Green Balloon

Green Balloon, Takapuna Christmas Market 2009, Copyright Chris Gregory 2013

A few years ago, 2009 to be precise, a Christmas market was held in the main street of our local town.  There were street stalls outside the main street businesses, as well as craft stalls, and a bouncy castle for the kids.  Throughout the day a number of groups entertained visitors to the market, including a Tai Chi group from a neighboring suburb.  It was during the Tai Chi demonstration that this wee girl caught my attention – totally absorbed with her green balloon while the demonstration carried on behind her back.  As you can tell from the surfing Santa on the pole in the background, Takapuna is a seaside township.

    What a great capture! Looks like she was doing her own form of tai chi.

    • Thanks Maureen. She’s a cutie alright, in a world of her own. Your comment about her own form of Tai Chi had also crossed my mind. Cheers, Chris
