A sign of the instances: ,000 fine if you sit in an “idling” vehicle for more than a minute
Eye Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
This photo was taken on 89th Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenue.

Note that this is not a posh private school in a wealthy neighborhood it’s an ordinary public college on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A ,000 fine is probably to be far more than the average resident has in his bank account …

And it makes you wonder: if we came back to this spot ten years from now, how significantly would the fine be then? ,000?

Note: this photo was published in an Apr 14, 2014 blog titled &quotNYC Lifts Ban on Churches in Schools.&quot

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

This set of images is primarily based on a quite simple notion: walk every single block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what takes place. To steer clear of missing something, walk both sides of the street.

That is 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’s more than I am prepared to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, more adventurous photographers.

Oh, truly, there is 1 far more small detail: leave the photos 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 a lot more than 8,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus one more numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take pictures. So I never anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot images, and hope that I will be able to make an objective choice of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to pick the modest subset of each and every-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. First, I’ll upload any photo that I feel is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-close friends will be, &quotI have no idea when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it really is really a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third involves time. I am hoping that I will take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who appears at it. Certainly, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will uncover other, much 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’s not recognizable to an individual from one more part of the country, or another part of the planet, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may be some photographs exactly where a &quotnon-nearby&quot viewer may well say, &quotI had no notion that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I bear in mind wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, shops, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually looking at the pictures about five years later, and being stunned by how much had changed. Small by tiny, store by shop, day by day, items modify … and when you have been around as long as I have, it’s even a lot more incredible to go back and look 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 wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these each-block photographs 5 or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, also), 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 notion what we’re calling this decade yet). Or possibly they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years following 9-11&quot.

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 make a decision that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/styles are yet another clear instance of a time-particular phenomenon and even though I am undoubtedly not a fashion specialist, I suspected that I will be in a position to look at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we actually put on shirts like that? Did females truly wear those weird skirts that are quick in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

One more instance: I’m fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that every person has one, which surely wasn’t correct a decade ago and it appears that every person walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious interest riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that might be going on (among other things, that tends to make it very simple for me to photograph them with no 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 help questioning regardless of whether this kind of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … specially if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single last thing: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each day’s photo-stroll. I’ll 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 single day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any recommendations about locations that I must definitely go to to get some excellent images, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your small 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

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

We New Yorkers had been often humble and modest … but then some bank told us we were specific.

This was taken at the intersection of six 1/2th Ave (yes, there is such an Avenue in NYC!) and 55th Street.

Santander Bank USA is the American subsidiary of the Santander Group, a Spanish-based worldwide financial institution. I’m not sure why they have such a higher opinion of New York City … but on the other hand, who can blame them?

If you want to know a lot more about the Santander parent organization, you can find them right here on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santander_Group.

Note: I chose this as my &quotphoto of the day&quot for Dec 18, 2013.

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

This set of pictures is based on a quite easy idea: walk each and every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To steer clear of missing anything, walk each 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 a lot more than I am willing to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, more adventurous photographers.

Oh, truly, there is one a lot more small detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact focus on the 1st of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken far more than 8,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus an additional a number of thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the a variety of spots in NYC where I traditionally take pictures. So I never count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I will be able to make an objective choice of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to choose the small subset of every single-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three.

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third entails time. I am hoping that I’ll take some photos that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who appears at it. Obviously, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll find other, a lot more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to someone from an additional portion of the country, or yet another element of the world, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may well be some pictures where a &quotnon-local&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no concept that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/beautiful/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 photos about five years later, and becoming stunned by how considerably had changed. Tiny by tiny, retailer by shop, day by day, issues adjust … and when you’ve been around as lengthy as I have, it’s even far more remarkable to go back and appear at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did individuals actually put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be searching at these each-block images five or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, too), I’m going to be performing 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).

Movie posters are a trivial example of such a time-specific image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll eventually determine that they are worth uploading. Women’s fashion/types are an additional obvious instance of a time-distinct phenomenon and even though I am certainly not a style professional, I suspected that I’ll be capable to look at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that?

Rolls Royce Armoured Automobile

A few good Military Tattoos images I found:

A pair of these early Rolls Royce armoured cars had been on a low loader on Johnstone Terrace on the way house from function, presumably transported their to be taken into the Castle for the Tattoo.

Or they could be for attempting to get by means of all those Festival crowds – push through with the armour and if that fails there’s the old Maxim machine gun to clear some space (they do not like it up ’em, Captain Mainwaring&quot). Outside of the Festival these are also dashed handy for keeping down those pesky tribesmen who stupidly object to you taking over their country to add to your Empire. Drive out in comfort, gun the blighters down, back to the officer’s club in time for a sundowner, dontcha know.

Search For Credit Card Thief 10-16-13 5pm

www.wctv.tv/home/headlines/Woman-Sought-In-Recent-Auto-Bu…

By: Elizabeth Nickerson
October 16, 2013

Tallahassee, FL- Lock your doors and hide your wallets. The Tallahassee Police Department gives that advice after having several car break-ins during this month alone.

Police say it might be this woman on your screen. She’s described to be around 20 to 30 years old . She has black hair and a heart tattoo on her chest.

"In this case we’ve had several indications to believe that this person has committed many burglaries and we are trying to get a hold of her," said Dave Northway, from the Tallahassee Police Department.

TPD says the thief takes purses to get credit cards or check books. The suspect was captured using a victims credit card.

"That’s a concern with me because I think it’s important to maintain our identity and to watch for that I think people should keep their cars locked," said Alan Otley, a Tallahassee resident.

"More aware of locking up my car and making sure the windows are up, which I actually didn’t do right now, but just telling people just make sure you take your purse in," said Connie Copeland, from Tallahassee.

Police say it will not release any details of the car burglaries, so we do not know at this time how many cars or if they were unlocked. TPD says it is still an on-going investigation.

Anyone with information about the suspects whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-TIPS.

— Press Release: Tallahassee Police Department

The Tallahassee Police Department’s Burglary Crimes Unit has been investigating a series of auto burglaries that have been occurring city wide. These burglaries began on October 8, 2013 and have consistently continued across the city.

The suspects are making entry into the victim’s vehicles and stealing purses, but are specifically target credit cards and checkbooks. The below female is a suspect in the burglaries and in the fraudulent use of the stolen credit cards.

She is described as a white female in her 20s or 30s, thin to medium build, and has long black or reddish hair with bangs. She has a large tattoo on her chest which appears to possibly be a “heart” design. She has also been seen wearing a short black bobbed wig.

She is possibly traveling in a newer model white Nissan Altima.
Anyone with information about the identity of this female or her whereabouts is asked to please call Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-TIPS or TPD at (850) 891-4200.
