It was a lovely day today and I went for a walk along the lakefront this afternoon to take a few photos of the sun setting over the water.
While there I spotted this man practicing Tai Chi. He was very graceful and a lot of people stopped to watch him as they passed by.
I watched him for a while too before snapping a couple of photos. It’s not something you often see around Belmont so it was interesting to shoot.
I like how the photos came out, particularly the black and white one. I was trying to capture some of the energy and grace of his movements and I think they convey that quite well.

That was interesting. Would you ever consider sticking around to interview your photo subjects?
Hi Dean, thanks! Yes I’ve thought of doing that and would like to do it more. I was just trying to document the scene with this but I’ve been thinking of doing some random street portraits so that might be a good chance to talk to people. Think it’d be interesting and fun! 😀
ohh I love Tai Chi !!
Me too! He’s been back a couple of times since, I’ll have to introduce myself and see if I can get a couple more shots
