When one has dreams and aspirations they should follow it until they reached the highest point of success. With that said that’s what Kyle, Ritchie, Sam, and Ryan, better known to their huge following of fans as local indie band from East Providence, Rhode Island, Empire are doing. Here is a sample of photos that I took today.

Lastly, shout out to actor Talli Clemons for suggesting a great venue.
This past weekend while attending a baby shower at Conley’s Wharf in Providence, RI I used my weapon of choice to capture shots of Rosario and Luis Polanco salsa dancing.
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.
