Fallen Soldiers…Salute!!!

“There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.” — Nelson Mandela

Today on my travels I decided to show my appreciate for our fallen soldiers and decided to go to Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Exeter, RI. Thank you for fighting for our country.

Boat Life…Shots of the East Bay Rhode Island

Today on my travels of the Ocean State instead of venturing by foot I decided to get my feet wet…literally. I was granted the opportunity to sail along the East Bay and sailed the ocean blue with my weapon of choice and was able to capture some images. Get your life jackets ready!!!

Urban Community Blossoms

Today I enjoyed the spring weather and found myself with my camera strapped to the side and came across a beautiful arrangement of Cherry Blossoms in the city of Providence.

Chillin’ In My B-Boy Stance

Breakdancing

Break dancing was a style of dancing that grew up around hip hop music during it’s early stages of development in the United States. ‘Break dancing’ stretched the human body to its limit.

While walking around Providence today I ventured over to the Brown University area and found myself on the always busy Thayer Street. As a I approach I see a group of people pop lockin and doing windmills on their heads. Local hip hop movement Project 401 brought the essence of hip hop to Thayer Street with Beat The Streets at Froyoworld. I was able to capture some shots while there.

Reflecting

Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!”~Bob Marley

There are times throughout my busy work week that I grab my Nikon, metaphorically my weapon of choice and venture out and search for things to capture. Sometimes it’s the simple things that we as a people don’t pay much attention to that turns out to be great moments. Traveling in North Scituate, Rhode Island today allowed me to reflect and appreciate what’s in front of me in life.
