A handful of nice Eye Tattoos images I discovered:

This was taken on Carmine St., between 6th and 7th Ave, in Greenwich Village.

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

This set of photographs is based on a very basic concept: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To stay away from missing anything, walk both sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

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

Oh, really, there’s one a lot more tiny detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact concentrate on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photos, I will have taken far more than 8,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus yet another several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take photos. So I don’t expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I’ll be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth hunting at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to pick the little subset of every single-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. 1st, I will upload any photo that I think is &quotgreat,&quot and exactly where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-close friends will be, &quotI have no notion when or where that photo was taken, but it’s actually a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third involves time. I am hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who appears at it. Clearly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am 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 somebody from an additional element of the nation, or an additional element of the globe, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may well be some images exactly where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no concept that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/gorgeous/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I bear in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, stores, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually seeking at the images about 5 years later, and being stunned by how considerably had changed. Little by tiny, shop by shop, day by day, items alter … and when you’ve been about as extended as I have, it is even more amazing to go back and look at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did men and women genuinely put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be hunting at these every single-block images 5 or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, also), I am going to be undertaking 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 notion what we’re calling this decade yet). 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-certain image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I never know if I will in the end determine that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/styles are yet another obvious instance of a time-particular phenomenon and even even though I’m certainly not a style expert, I suspected that I will be capable to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we truly wear shirts like that? Did ladies actually put on those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everybody 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 appears that absolutely everyone has a single, which certainly wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious attention riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may be going on (among other issues, that tends to make it extremely effortless for me to photograph them with no 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 not support questioning regardless of whether this kind of social behavior will appear 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 straight into our eyeballs.

If you have any recommendations about locations that I ought to absolutely go to to get some good 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 e-mail me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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