4 2018 PHOTOS OF THE YEAR JANUARY 10-16, 2019 | THE VALLEY BREEZE 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 tanker 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 atten- tion. I caught up with Kasey Choquette of Cumberland who told me that he was doing back- flips to keep cool. (I never real- ized that risking a concussion 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 shut- ter 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. 1565 Douglas Avenue, North Providence, RI 401-353-5555 Fax: 401-353-4807 Douglas Apartments All of our Apartments include: • Air Conditioning • Laundry Facilities • Heat, Hot Water & Gas Included • Pools, Tennis & Bocci Courts • Plenty of Parking • Friendly On-Site Staff • Beautiful Landscaping DOUGLAS Commons/Tanglewood • 1 & 2 Bedrooms Available • 1-1.5 Baths • Elevators • Apt.
