16 2018 PHOTOS OF THE YEAR JANUARY 9-15, 2019 | THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER BREEZE PHOTO BY ROBERT EMERSON Newspaper publishers, including the one who publishes the paper you're reading right now, love photographs that contain a lot of faces because they tend to attract more readers if only to see if they recognize any of the faces. I get that. The problem for photographers, however, is that those kinds of pictures tend to be deadly, "line-'em-up-against-the-wall" photos. I seldom do that kind of picture and when I do, I admit I'm not very good at it. This photo just fell in my lap. The students at Stephen Olney Elementary School in North Providence got a special assem- bly as a reward for completing their summer reading program in September. The program included Anthony Pezzillo, a local martial arts instructor, who was demonstrating some simple techniques to defend against a "bully." I was behind Pezzillo, facing the students, when he flipped around toward me and raised the kids' energy levels through the roof, with everyone in motion at the same time. Another "right place- right time" photo and the only credit I can take is pressing the shutter. 144 Broad Street Cumberland, RI 02864 Website: E-mail: Office: 401-724-8650 Fax: 401-725-1690 *For qualified buyers.
