Local artists need to support each other. With that said I was able to link up with an incredibly gifted artist from Newport,Rhode Island, Jamal Burley. This incredibly artistic young man gave me the honor of photographing him and some of his work.
Today on my travels me and my weapon of choice ventured to the East Side of Providenceand landed on Wickenden Street.
Typically known for its trendy shops, Wickenden was jammed packed with people on both sides of the street ready to take in the excitement of Providence Honk, better known as Pronk!
This festival brings people from all walks of life together from activist to street and marching bands. Here are some images I was able to capture of the parade today.

Today I want to shout out the creative artist that have brought a different form of art to the city of Providence, RIthat have been taking part in the Art Transformer Project. I was able to go around the city today with my weapon of choice, Nikon D3100 and get some shots of what I feel brings a positive light on a city that has been plagued with negativity over the past few months. Again thank you to those artist for displaying their work.
Today me and my weapon of choice decided to travel down interstate 195 to get enjoy the last days of summer. We finally came to a quaint and relaxing location in Massachusetts at Wesport Town Beach. While there I was able to capture some images.
