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

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

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

This set of pictures is primarily based on a quite basic notion: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To keep away from missing vanything, stroll both sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

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

Oh, actually, there is one far more tiny detail: leave the photographs alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly focus on the very first of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken more than 8,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus one more several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take images. So I do not count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot images, and hope that I will be in a position to make an objective choice of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to select the modest subset of every-block images that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. 1st, I’ll upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-buddies will be, &quotI have no thought when or where that photo was taken, but it really is genuinely a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third entails time. I’m hoping that I will take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who appears at it. Certainly, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll uncover other, much more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to somebody from one more element of the nation, or one more part of the globe, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may possibly be some images where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may well 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 around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, stores, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually hunting at the pictures about five years later, and becoming stunned by how a lot had changed. Tiny by little, shop by retailer, day by day, items change … and when you have been around as lengthy as I have, it’s even far more wonderful to go back and look at the images you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it really like that back then? Seriously, did folks actually put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be seeking at these every-block pictures five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my very 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 concept what we’re calling this decade but). Or perhaps they will just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11&quot.

Movie posters are a trivial example of such a time-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll eventually choose that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/types are an additional obvious example of a time-specific phenomenon and even though I am undoubtedly not a style specialist, I suspected that I’ll be capable to appear at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did girls really put on those weird skirts that are short in the front, and extended in the back? Did every person in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Another example: I am fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has a single, which surely wasn’t correct a decade ago and it appears that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious consideration riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may well be going on (among other factors, that makes it very simple for me to photograph them without their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I cannot assist questioning no matter whether this type of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … specifically if our cellphones have turn out to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, one particular last issue: I’ve developed a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of every day’s photo-stroll. I’ll 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.
