New Year’s Day: talking it over, #1
Eye Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
Generally, I let my images sit quietly for a month prior to I look at them critically and make a decision no matter whether they’re worth uploading to Flickr … and this set of three images demonstrates precisely why I do that: if I upload them too rapidly, as I’m undertaking now, I am most likely to get far also emotional about them. Certainly, this a single and its two companions may possibly nicely get deleted from my Flickr archives in the next couple of weeks … but I couldn’t help uploading them tonight so that I could share them with you.

The photographs were taken earlier this afternoon, during what was otherwise a quite extended, boring, unproductive photo-walk in the cold weather of New Year’s Day — a stroll that started on 7th Avenue and 14th Street, proceeded uptown to Instances Square at 42nd Street, and then back down the west side of 7th Avenue till I got to 14th Street once more.

About halfway among 28th and 29th Street, I occurred to notice this scene out of the corner of my eye — across the street, and back toward the southeast corner of 28th Street, exactly where there is an IRT subway quit (the entrance to which you can see on the right side of the photo).

I do not know what was going on here, but I got the impression that the guy might have been on his way home — soon after all, the Penn Station railway depot is only a handful of blocks additional up Seventh Avenue — and probably he was saying goodbye to the girl in the blue coat. It was, right after all, New Year’s Day and for all I know, perhaps they just met the day just before. But it may possibly have been considerably far more mundane than that I will never ever know, due to the fact right after a couple moments, they separated and went on their separate methods alone.

As for the other individuals in the photo: they had nothing to do with the couple I was concentrating on, but I thought they added some thing to the general scene.

I stood for a handful of moments to watch the scene … and when it was over, and the players had all left the stage I was watching so closely, I continued trudging along northward, previous Penn Station and on to Occasions Square. This is a city of a million stories, and for the most element, you never ever truly get to know the particulars of any of them …

Note: I chose this as my &quotphoto of the day&quot for Jan 2, 2014.

I had intended for this photo to be a single of a lot of contained in the &quoteveryblock&quot set that I am working on, the details of which are described under. But for causes that ought to grow to be clear by the time you finish reading those particulars, this certain photo ultimately failed the test — i.e., when you look at it, you don’t quickly associated it with New York City. Nor does it have something to do with 2014 — or, for that matter, any particular year. It could have been photographed at any point in the past century. (If you want to quibble, you could argue that we didn’t have rolling suitcases ahead of the early 1990s, but that’s a quite tiny irrelevant detail). So … I sooner or later decided to move the photo out of the &quoteveryblock&quot set an into a &quotMisc 2014&quot set.

(You possibly would not have guessed that there is so considerably agonizing over where to put these stupid pictures on Flickr, but it’s anything that I truly do think about a lot …

Anyway, here’s the story of the &quoteveryblock&quot set ….

My &quoteveryblock&quot set of pictures is based on a extremely easy concept: walk each and every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To avoid missing something, walk both sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

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

Oh, really, there’s one particular more modest detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly concentrate on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken a lot more than 8,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC where I traditionally take photographs. So I don’t count on 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 utilized to select the modest subset of each-block pictures that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. First, I’ll upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-close friends will be, &quotI have no concept when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it is truly a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third includes time. I’m hoping that I will take some photos that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any individual who appears at it. Clearly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will discover other, far more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be capable to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to an individual from another part of the nation, or one more component of the world, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may be some photos exactly where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no notion that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/beautiful/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, stores, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually searching at the photos about 5 years later, and being stunned by how much had changed. Tiny by little, shop by shop, day by day, issues alter … and when you’ve been around as long as I have, it really is even much more incredible to go back and look at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did people actually wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these every-block pictures 5 or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, also), I am going to be performing my very best 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 thought what we’re calling this decade but). Or perhaps they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years soon after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial instance of such a time-distinct image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll in the end make a decision that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are another obvious instance of a time-specific phenomenon and even though I’m certainly not a style professional, I suspected that I’ll be able to look at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really wear shirts like that? Did females really put on these weird skirts that are quick in the front, and long in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

One more instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that absolutely everyone has one, which surely wasn’t correct a decade ago and it seems that absolutely everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious focus riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may possibly be going on (among other items, that makes it extremely simple 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 telephone conversation). But I can’t assist wondering whether this type of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have turn into so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, 1 last thing: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise information of every day’s photo-walk. I will be updating it each and 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 every day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

If you have any recommendations about locations that I ought to certainly pay a visit to to get some excellent pictures, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your little corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can e-mail me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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