Yelp’s Wanderlust

A handful of nice Indian Tattoos images I discovered:

Yelp’s Wanderlust
Indian Tattoos

Image by Yelp.com
60 vendors…4 rooms… 1,500+ RSVPs…. three DJs, mimes, a silent disco, henna tattoos, fortune tellers, hair braiders, glow in the dark stencils, flamenco guitarist, face painting, private VIP lounge, endless free cocktails, painting stations, the greatest DJ in Dallas…. Latin, West African, Ethiopian, Indian Bollywood, belly dancers, Chinese dance performances &amp tons of international meals! I’d say Wanderlust, a cultural celebration of leading neighborhood businesses, was a success! Thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors who made this the biggest, ideal Yelp event Dallas has ever seen!

A handful of good Eye Tattoos pictures I identified:

New Yorkers cease whatever they are performing to answer a text message – even if it is the middle of the street
Eye Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
This photo was taken on the corner of Christopher Street and Bedford Street, in Greenwich Village.

***************

This set of images is based on a quite straightforward idea: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To avoid missing something, stroll both sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be a lot more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s far more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, a lot more adventurous photographers.

Oh, in fact, there’s one much more little detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually focus on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken a lot more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus an additional numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in NYC where I traditionally take photos. So I never count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I will be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilised to pick the modest subset of every-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I will upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-buddies will be, &quotI have no notion when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it is genuinely a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third requires time. I am hoping that I will take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who looks at it. Naturally, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Creating or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I’ll uncover other, far more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to somebody from yet another component of the country, or one more portion of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may possibly be some pictures where a &quotnon-local&quot viewer may well say, &quotI had no concept that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, stores, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually seeking at the photos about 5 years later, and being stunned by how much had changed. Little by small, retailer by store, day by day, factors adjust … and when you have been about as long as I have, it really is even more amazing to go back and look at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it genuinely like that back then? Seriously, did individuals truly wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these each and every-block images five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, as well), I am going to be carrying out my greatest to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no idea what we’re calling this decade but). Or maybe they will just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11&quot.

Movie posters are a trivial instance of such a time-specific image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I will ultimately choose that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/styles are one more obvious example of a time-specific phenomenon and even though I am definitely not a fashion expert, I suspected that I will be capable to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we genuinely wear shirts like that? Did girls genuinely wear those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that absolutely everyone has a single, which surely wasn’t correct a decade ago and it seems that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious interest riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may well be going on (amongst other things, that tends to make it quite straightforward for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I can’t aid questioning no matter whether this type of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … specially if our cellphones have turn out to be so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, one particular final issue: I’ve developed a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it each day, and the most recent portion of my each-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be shown in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it every single day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

If you have any ideas about places that I should undoubtedly go to to get some great photos, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your tiny corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can email me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …

A couple of nice Eye Tattoos photos I located:

When somebody says, “I’m from New York,” it typically indicates, “I live in Manhattan – the center of the Universe.”

Image by Ed Yourdon
This was taken on the corner of West 8th St and fifth Avenue, in Greenwich Village

***************

This set of images is based on a quite straightforward concept: stroll each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To keep away from missing anything, stroll each sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be much more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that is more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, much more adventurous photographers.

Oh, really, there is one particular a lot more small detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I really concentrate on the very first of these &quotevery-block&quot pictures, I will have taken much more than 8,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus yet another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC where I traditionally take photographs. So I never count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photographs, and hope that I’ll be in a position to make an objective choice of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to choose the tiny subset of every single-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Very first, I will upload any photo that I feel is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-buddies will be, &quotI have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it is truly a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I will take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any person who appears at it. Naturally, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Creating or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will locate other, more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to someone from yet another component of the country, or another portion of the world, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may be some photos where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may possibly say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, retailers, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually looking at the pictures about 5 years later, and being stunned by how a lot had changed. Small by small, store by retailer, day by day, things modify … and when you have been about as extended as I have, it’s even much more wonderful to go back and appear at the images you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it genuinely like that back then? Seriously, did men and women actually put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every-block pictures 5 or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, too), I’m going to be performing my ideal to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no idea what we’re calling this decade yet). Or possibly they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial instance of such a time-certain image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I never know if I’ll in the end choose that they are worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are another apparent example of a time-certain phenomenon and even even though I am definitely not a fashion specialist, I suspected that I will be able to appear at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did females truly wear these weird skirts that are quick in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that absolutely everyone has 1, which definitely wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it appears that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious consideration riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may well be going on (among other things, that makes it very straightforward for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, specifically if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I cannot support wondering no matter whether this type of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have grow to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, one last thing: I’ve developed a customized Google Map to show the precise information of each and every day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it every day, and the most current part of my each-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be shown in blue.

It seems that every person has one particular, which definitely wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious consideration riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may possibly be going on (among other things, that makes it very effortless for me to photograph them without their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I can not support questioning whether or not this kind of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have turn out to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, one last thing: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each day’s photo-stroll. I will be updating it every day, and the most recent part of my each and every-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be shown in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it each and every day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

If you have any recommendations about places that I should definitely visit to get some excellent images, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your tiny corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can e mail me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …
