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.
“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.
I had the pleasure to be able to photograph a local Rhode Islander that is a multi talented music artist. Besides being lyrically gifted this man is very humble and a proven survivor. Thank you to Ace Diamond for the opportunity.
