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

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

That is all there is to it …

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

Oh, in fact, there is one more small detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually concentrate on the very first of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken far more than 8,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus an additional many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take images. So I don’t count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I will be capable to make an objective selection of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to select the modest subset of every-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Initial, I will upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, &quotI have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it really is actually a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I will take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody 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 locate other, a lot more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be in a position to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to an individual from one more portion of the country, or one more part of the globe, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there might be some photos where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may well say, &quotI had no concept that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/beautiful/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, stores, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually looking at the images about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how much had changed. Small by small, store by retailer, day by day, items adjust … and when you have been about as extended as I have, it is even far more remarkable to go back and appear at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it truly like that back then? Seriously, did people actually put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be seeking at these every-block images five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, as well), I am going to be performing my 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 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 example of such a time-specific image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I will eventually make a decision that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/styles are an additional apparent example of a time-specific phenomenon and even although I am absolutely not a style professional, I suspected that I’ll be capable to appear at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really wear shirts like that? Did women really wear those weird skirts that are short 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 folks have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that everybody has 1, which certainly wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their complete conscious focus riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (amongst other things, that tends to make it quite simple 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 can’t support questioning regardless of whether this type of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … specially if our cellphones have turn into so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single last issue: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise information of every day’s photo-walk. I will be updating it every day, and the most recent component of my every single-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

The generations get along reasonably effectively in New York City

This was taken on W 12th St, near 8th Ave, in Greenwich Village.

This set of images is primarily based on a extremely easy idea: stroll every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To steer clear of missing anything, stroll each sides of the street.

Of course, if you wanted to be far more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx.

By the time I truly focus on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot pictures, I will have taken a lot more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC where I traditionally take images. So I do not expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I will be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to select the tiny subset of every-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three.

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third entails time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some photos that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody 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 locate other, far 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 is not recognizable to an individual from another element of the country, or another element of the globe, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may well be some pictures where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may possibly say, &quotI had no concept that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, stores, restaurants, and organization establishments — and then casually hunting at the pictures about five years later, and becoming stunned by how a lot had changed. Small by small, shop by retailer, day by day, items adjust … and when you’ve been about as long as I have, it is even far more amazing to go back and appear at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it really like that back then?

Movie posters are a trivial example of such a time-particular image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will in the end choose that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are an additional obvious example of a time-specific phenomenon and even even though I am absolutely not a fashion expert, I suspected that I’ll be able to look at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we genuinely put on shirts like that? Did ladies genuinely put on those weird skirts that are short in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that folks have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that every person has one, which undoubtedly wasn’t true a decade ago and it seems that absolutely everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their complete conscious interest riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may well be going on (among other things, that makes it really simple for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation).

When we consume outside at restaurants, we like to bring our dogs along

When we eat outdoors at restaurants, we like to bring our dogs along
Dog Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
I am sorry to say that I did not even write down the name of this restaurant, but I can tell you that it really is located on the west side of Broadway, between 104th and 105th St.

But it is a scene you will see all over NYC, and I don’t know how distinctive it is to the Huge Apple … for the moment, anyway, I never recall seeing it anyplace else.

When the weather is nice, lots of New Yorkers patronize restaurants where they can eat outside, at tables that are taking up some of the sidewalk space in between the buildings and the street. In many cases, the tables are &quotexposed&quot to whatever kind of pedestrian visitors (including bums, crazies, and beggars) who may be wandering up the street. In this case, the restaurant proprietor actually put up a small picket fence.

… and it’s outside the picket fence where the dogs are expected to sit patiently, whilst their owners spend a lengthy period of time consuming their meal, enjoying a beer, or just chatting with 1 one more. If they’re fortunate, the dogs will get an occasional nibble of meals, or maybe a pat on the back.

Notice that in this case, one of the owners also brought along a metal bowl, presumably to be filled with water (contrary to whatever rumors you may possibly have heard, we don’t feed beer to our dogs).
