THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | JANUARY 9-15, 2019 2018 PHOTOS OF THE YEAR 5 BREEZE PHOTO BY ROBERT EMERSON When the thermometer read 91 degrees and it wasn't even noon yet, I knew it would be a scorcher. But on July 4, people still gathered in North Scituate for the annual "Olde Home Day" celebration and just made the most of it. But it was HOT. Some relief came in the form of a red tank- er truck from North Scituate whose on-board firefighters unrolled a few hoses and started spraying water on anyone who wanted to cool down. It was while I was photographing people enjoying the cool spray that I noticed in the back of the crowd that there was someone who seemed to be hanging upside down in mid-air. Naturally this caught my attention. I caught up with Kasey Choquette of Cumberland who told me that he was doing back-flips to keep cool. (I never realized that risking a concus- sion was an effective cooling tech- nique, but I said nothing.) He asked if I wanted to see one and I said sure. I set the camera for five frames a second, a fast shutter speed, and held my breath. This kid was good. I like this picture because one of my goals as a photographer has always been to create images that make you look at them twice. There are no hidden wires here, no Photoshopping, just an athletic young man from Cumberland who made my day. % Interest 0 With regular payments financing available M ASSUD & SONS FLOOR COVERING, INC.
