New Yorkers genuinely don’t care if they block a taxi. Their text messages are a lot more crucial

This was taken on Bleecker, beteween Mercer &amp Thompson, in Greenwich Village.

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

This set of images is primarily based on a very easy idea: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. 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 much more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, more adventurous photographers.

Oh, truly, there’s one a lot more little detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I really focus on the 1st of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken much more than 8,000 images 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 photographs. So I never expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I’ll be capable to make an objective choice of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to select the tiny subset of every single-block images that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I’ll upload any photo that I believe is &quotgreat,&quot and exactly where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it really is really a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third requires time. I am hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who looks at it. Clearly, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll find 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 is not recognizable to someone from an additional part of the nation, or an additional 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 thought that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, retailers, restaurants, and organization establishments — and then casually seeking at the images about five years later, and being stunned by how much had changed. Small by small, retailer by store, day by day, things alter … and when you’ve been around as long as I have, it’s even much 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 folks genuinely wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be hunting at these every single-block photographs 5 or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, too), I’m going to be undertaking my ideal 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 perhaps they will 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-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I never know if I’ll eventually determine that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are an additional clear instance of a time-particular phenomenon and even even though I am definitely not a style professional, I suspected that I’ll be capable to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did women truly wear these weird skirts that are brief in the front, and long in the back? Did every person 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 seems that everyone has one, which undoubtedly wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it appears that every person 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 factors, that makes it very straightforward 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 aid questioning regardless of whether this type of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

If you have any ideas about areas that I should undoubtedly visit 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 email me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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

In New York, some men and women put on huge sunglasses. And some men and women wear funny scarves

Image by Ed Yourdon
This was taken on Houston Street, at the intersection with Essex Street at the northern edge of SoHo, down in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

In the background, you can see the street sign for Norfolk Street, and on the correct is the fenced-in northern boundary of the ABC Playground. Not to be confused with Hamilton Fish Park, which is about 5 blocks additional east.

As for the young lady on the proper: if that is indeed a monster-size bottle of Red Bull that she’s holding, then I can realize why her hair has turned orange. It may also explain why the man on the left felt that he need to wear oversize sunglasses.

Alas, this photo was shot in (ugh) JPEG, simply because I had just gotten a new Sony A7 Mark II camera, and had forgotten to verify regardless of whether my Apple photo-editing application (Aperture, which I’m desperately holding onto in the hope that Apple’s new Photographs app will not make me crawl and slither to the Dark Side of the Force recognized as Lightroom) had RAW support for the new camera. It turned out that it did not have it at the time (which I checked by means of Google on my iPhone, proper out there on Houston Street). Feh. So, anyway, I had rather restricted ability to lighten the dark-shadowed colors of the couple’s pants.

Note: I chose this as my &quotphoto of the day&quot for Might six, 2015.

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

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

That’s all there is to it … it really is a project that I started in the spring of 2013, continued pretty often through the fall of 2014, and have now resumed in the spring of 2015 …

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 far more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, a lot more adventurous photographers.

Oh, really, there’s 1 far more little detail: leave the photographs alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually focus on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken much more than eight,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus an additional a number of thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take pictures. So I never expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I will be capable to make an objective choice of the ones worth hunting at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to select the tiny subset of every single-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. First, I will upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and exactly where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no notion when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it’s genuinely a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third requires time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who looks at it. Naturally, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will locate other, much 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’s not recognizable to someone from yet another element of the nation, or yet another portion of the globe, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may possibly be some pictures exactly where a &quotnon-nearby&quot viewer may possibly say, &quotI had no notion that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/gorgeous/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, shops, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually searching at the pictures about five years later, and becoming stunned by how considerably had changed. Tiny by little, store by shop, day by day, factors change … and when you have been about as extended as I have, it’s even a lot more incredible to go back and appear at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it genuinely like that back then? Seriously, did folks really wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every single-block images five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, as well), I am going to be performing 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 concept what we’re calling this decade yet). Or possibly they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years right after 9-11&quot.

Movie posters are a trivial instance of such a time-distinct image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I will in the end decide that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are another apparent instance of a time-distinct phenomenon and even although I’m definitely not a style specialist, I suspected that I’ll be in a position to appear at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we genuinely wear shirts like that? Did women genuinely put on those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and extended in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional instance: I’m fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that absolutely everyone has one, which surely wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that every person walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious consideration riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (among other issues, that makes it extremely straightforward for me to photograph them without 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’t support wondering whether this type of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … specifically if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

This photo was taken in Times Square, in between 44th and 45th on Broadway.

I study all three volumes of the novel, saw the very first movie once in a theater and once on a lengthy plane ride, — and will possibly see this one particular, as well.

But not on November 22nd.

Maybe it’s a generational point …

Note: I chose this as my &quotphoto of the day&quot for Nov 9, 2013.
