IMO this was the Ideal so far for Art Tattoo Montreal Show / Festival du Tatouage de Montréal.

I went for 1 day for a couple of hours. It really is always good to see some of the Tattoo Artists that i know and often fantastic to meet new Tattoo Artists personally.

I did not go to get Tatted although I’d truly like to get a Half Sleeve in the Future and I currently know who I’d want to get Tattooed from and what I’d like to get as a Tattoo… :)

The artwork that is accomplished all in one location is actually remarkable, watching Tattoos getting completed Freehand was a treat… People coming to this Occasion being tattooed by their preferred Tattoo Artists… I walked the stroll area looking at the progression of some of the tattoos and they have been truly impressive… Majority of the Clientele sitting by means of it like a Rock even though some had been at the Point where it was starting to be uncomfortable or currently beyond it…

For me it is Inspiring…

Anyways…

Brought My Camera out with Me and I took a couple of Images… I do not like to Photograph what everyone else does so I decided to make My Series about the Needle to the Skin and try to get some photographs of Tattoo Artists Drawing… Nothing is posed and every thing is shot reside for the duration of the session… If it is not organic and if it’s posed I’m not going to take a shot.

NYC Stickball, Jun 2014 – 41
Sports Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
(much more details later, as time permits)

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

I’m writing these notes about halfway by way of the 2014 World Cup, and I can not assist questioning if any person will have the slightest interest in seeing images about a bunch of guys running around the streets of New York as they hit a little pink rubber ball with what looks like a broomstick. Indeed, the Wikipedia post on stickball (which you can discover at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stickball ) tells us that

&quotStickball is a street game connected to baseball, usually formed as a choose-up game played in large cities in the Northeastern United States, particularly New York City and Philadelphia. The equipment consists of a broom deal with and a rubber ball, typically a spaldeen, pensy pinky, high bouncer or tennis ball. The guidelines come from baseball and are modified to match the situation, for instance, a manhole cover may possibly be utilised as a base, or buildings for foul lines. The game is a variation of stick and ball games dating back to at least the 1750s. This game was extensively popular amongst youths increasing up from the 20th century till the 1980s.&quot

So, what I was photographing right here was absolutely not soccer nor was it the much more “traditional” American sport of baseball … and definitely not (American-style) football either. It’s a game of its own, though the particular game that I occurred to watch and photograph was a variation normally referred to as “fungo” — where the batter tosses the ball into the air and hits it on the way down, or after 1 or more bounces.

Like a lot of of the other genuinely, actually great days on my 1+ years of photo-walking in NYC, today’s knowledge was entirely unexpected. I was trudging along 109th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side — and shortly following walking by means of a tunnel that supports the overhead train tracks carrying MetroNorth trains (and Amtrak/Acela, too, I guess) up and down Park Avenue to the final stopping point in Grand Central — I discovered myself at a corner that has come to be known as the “Stickball Hall of Fame Location,” at 109th Street and Third Avenue. Two diverse stickball games have been underway, but I was reasonably secure as lengthy as I stayed on the sidewalks. (If you’re interested in the Stickball Hall of Fame, check out this internet website: northattan.com/2013/ten/07/maintaining-a-tradition-alive-in-ea… )

As I’ve learned, you can in no way tell when unexpected occasions like this will happen — and they may certainly occur only when a year. Most days out on the street with my camera are reasonably blah and many (like most of Manhattan’s west side, especially the location from 57th Street down to 14th Street) are frustratingly unproductive. There are a couple of great days, and a handful of very good shots — but a concentrated burst like these days happens only on rare occasions …

Thus, when such occasions do take place, it’s essential to exploit them for each bit they’re worth. Fortunately I realized that right now — and decided that I’d be pleased to stay on that 1 street (109th, among 2nd and 3rd Avenue) for the complete afternoon. In particular, I made no effort whatsoever to leave rapidly in order to walk 108th Street, too following all, it will be there tomorrow (and the subsequent day, and the day following that), whereas the photo chance may in no way come back again.

Fortunately, I was given the chance to meet some of the stickball players, chat with them, find out about their buddies and relatives (many told me of beginning to play the game with their personal fathers, many years earlier) and supply to send them some photographs (which, therefore far, no one has completed). Possibly one of the causes that I have not gotten involved with many NYC individuals on the street before is that I truly wasn’t specifically interested in what they have been undertaking, and there was no clear way they could continue carrying out what they were undertaking with out my becoming an clear intrusion. Not so these days …

In addition to the nevertheless pictures, I took about a dozen video clips, even though I didn’t in fact consider of undertaking so till roughly halfway by means of the photo episode. But in retrospect, it need to have been clear: it’s a sports-game, so it depend on motion and the yelling, shouting, and overall noise is a quite crucial portion of the expertise, too. So I lastly started shooting brief ten-20 second clips when each of the batters was about to wallop the ball, and then run on to 1st base …

I was tempted to go back to watch the game again subsequent weekend, climate permitting but I already had other commitments for those days, so it didn’t take place. Perhaps 2 weeks from now, or two months … or anytime.

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

This set of pictures is based on a very simple notion: walk each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To stay away from missing something, stroll each sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

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

Oh, really, there is 1 much more small detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually focus on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken much more than 8,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC where I traditionally take photographs. So I never anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot images, and hope that I’ll be in a position to make an objective selection of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to choose the little subset of each-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. Very first, I will upload any photo that I believe is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no idea when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it is truly a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third includes time. I’m hoping that I will take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who appears at it. Clearly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I’ll discover other, a lot more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be in a position to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to somebody from another portion of the nation, or one more component of the planet, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there might be some photographs exactly where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, stores, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually searching at the images about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how a lot had changed. Tiny by tiny, shop by retailer, day by day, issues change … and when you’ve been about as extended as I have, it is even a lot more remarkable to go back and appear at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it really like that back then? Seriously, did individuals really wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be seeking at these every single-block pictures five or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, also), I’m going to be doing my best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they have been taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no thought what we’re calling this decade however). Or possibly they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years soon after 9-11&quot.

Movie posters are a trivial instance of such a time-particular image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I never know if I’ll in the end determine that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/types are one more obvious instance of a time-certain phenomenon and even though I am certainly not a fashion specialist, I suspected that I’ll be capable to look at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did females truly put on those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and extended in the back? Did absolutely everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everybody has a single, which definitely wasn’t true a decade ago and it seems that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious interest riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may well be going on (amongst other things, that tends to make it very effortless for me to photograph them with out their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I cannot help questioning whether or not this kind of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have turn out to be so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single last issue: I’ve produced a customized Google Map to show the precise particulars of each and every day’s photo-walk. I will be updating it every single day, and the most current 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 day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

If you have any suggestions about areas that I ought to absolutely pay a visit to to get some excellent pictures, 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 directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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