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

This set of images is based on a extremely basic notion: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To stay away from missing something, stroll both 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 stroll the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s more than I’m prepared to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, a lot more adventurous photographers.

Oh, actually, there’s 1 a lot more little detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually focus on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photos, 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 numerous spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take images. So I do not anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photographs, and hope that I will be in a position to make an objective selection of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to select the little subset of every single-block pictures that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Initial, 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 concept when or where that photo was taken, but it is actually a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third involves time. I am hoping that I’ll take some photos that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who appears at it. Clearly, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I’ll discover other, much 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 somebody from another portion of the nation, or yet another portion of the planet, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may possibly be some pictures where a &quotnon-local&quot viewer may well say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/beautiful/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I bear in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, shops, restaurants, and organization establishments — and then casually seeking at the photographs about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how a lot had changed. Small by little, retailer by shop, day by day, things alter … and when you have been around as extended as I have, it’s even far more amazing to go back and appear at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it truly like that back then? Seriously, did folks actually wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be searching at these every single-block images 5 or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, as well), I am going to be undertaking my best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they had been taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no idea what we’re calling this decade however). 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-particular image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I never know if I’ll eventually decide that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are an additional clear example of a time-certain phenomenon and even even though I’m undoubtedly not a style specialist, I suspected that I will be in a position to appear at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we actually put on shirts like that? Did ladies genuinely wear those weird skirts that are quick in the front, and extended in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everybody has 1, which surely wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it appears that every person walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious interest riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (among other items, that makes it extremely effortless for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I cannot support wondering whether or not this type of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … specifically if our cellphones have grow to be 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 and every day’s photo-walk. I will be updating it each day, and the most recent part of my each-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 each and every day to see exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

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

I took this photo in the Hell’s Kitchen location of mid-town Manhattan on a bitter-cold afternoon in early March, while I was tromping along via numerous east-west side streets on my &quotphoto-walk&quot project.

But I in the end decided that it did not genuinely say anything &quotspecial&quot about New York City, nor did it really inform the viewer that all of this was taking place in 2013, or any distinct year in the previous decade. Perhaps an automobile fanatic could look at the vehicle in the background and tell what &quotyear model&quot it is/was — but for most of us, the photo could have been been taken at any point in the previous 20 years. And it could have been taken in any significant city around the world …

So, as a outcome, I’ve decided to file this photo in the &quotmiscellaneous 2014&quot Flickr set. But, for the sake of completeness, I’ve appended the complete description of my &quotevery block&quot project under …

Note: inside moments soon after I uploaded this photo, one of my loyal and long-suffering Flickr close friends did me the honor of &quotfavoriting&quot it … so I’ve changed its status from a restricted &quotfriends &amp loved ones&quot to &quotpublic.

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

This set of images is based on a very basic concept: walk each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To avoid missing something, stroll 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 walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx.

First, I’ll upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no thought when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it really is really a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any individual who looks at it. Obviously, certain 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, far more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be capable 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 country, or another portion of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may be some pictures exactly where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer may possibly say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/beautiful/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I bear in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, retailers, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually searching at the photos about five years later, and being stunned by how considerably had changed. Small by little, shop by store, day by day, factors modify … and when you’ve been around as extended as I have, it is even much more remarkable to go back and appear at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did men and women really wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these each and every-block photographs five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, also), I am going to be undertaking 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 notion what we’re calling this decade but). 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 instance of such a time-particular image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will ultimately make a decision that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/types are one more clear instance of a time-certain phenomenon and even even though I’m certainly not a style specialist, I suspected that I will be able to appear at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we truly wear shirts like that? Did women actually wear those weird skirts that are short in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I am fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that everybody has one, which undoubtedly wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it seems that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious focus riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (among other factors, that tends to make it extremely 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 phone conversation). But I cannot help questioning regardless of whether this type of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have turn into so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, one particular last point: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of each day’s photo-stroll. I will be updating it every day, and the most recent component 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.

Good Old Wasp (Polistes bellicosus)
Eye Tattoos

Image by bob in swamp
This good old paper wasp was resting her frazzled wings and refreshing herself on a Baccharis blossom. Note the &quotV for Vespidae&quot tattoo on her forehead! Truly, wasps have two large compound eyes and 3 tiny &quotOcelli&quot in a V pattern which act as secondary visual sensors, possibly to detect shadows from approaching predators &amp wildflower dudes. This was a quite windy morning at Jonathan Dickinson State Park but the fragrance of the Baccharis was intoxicating and the whole bush was buzzing from the collective activity of winged insects!

Most of the necrotic bit has come off. I was thinking it was truly genuinely modest at the end and so I did not drop significantly, but then I looked at my first photographs and realised that my areola on the left is in fact significantly smaller than it was. My nipple is not centred any longer. So i guess a modest bit of pink tattoo ink may however be in my future. Or a giant dragon with a droopy nipple for an eye!

I have far also significantly enjoy for this outfit. I’ve been hunting for open-fly pants for a extended time, and discovered these extremely not too long ago at Boneflower. I paired them with neko panties from Precocious, since the mixture was near unavoidable. The panties peek out perfectly via the unzipped fly, and the waistband on the panties rest just high enough to make it appear like the pants have began to slip down. I love it. The rest of the outfit was secondary: a tank, cute girly footwear, and my favorite tattoo.

The hair is from ETD, again, and also a result of my couture collection buying spree even though they are half off. The style is pretty heavily edited to move the fans (the pigtails on the side of the head) forward to cover my avi’s human ears. I’m a pretty committed neko in this regard: just about all of my hair gets modded to stop the 4-ear effect.

I seldom put on bright makeup, due to the fact it’s not my style and typically doesn’t sit my red hair. When I picked up this freebie skin from Gigi Couture, I was surprised by how nice the colors had been. I wanted to wear a black dress with them to preserve them a bit toned down, but did not want one thing too heavy for the spring season. I picked this simple black babydoll (which is a single of my favorite dresses and which I’ve worn ahead of). I carried the makeup colors by way of in the stockings, from Canimal, and kept my other accessories straightforward and black. The hair, from Kin, is a style I adore&#151unfortunately, Kin hair textures vary often, so my red of selection isn’t offered for this style, but I was in a position to make do by tinting the brown-red colour a bit richer and redder. All told, I am really content with this look, even if it falls slightly outdoors of my usual.
