Every person who lives in NYC desperately wants to skateboard up and down Park Avenue …

Some cool Fire Tattoos images:

Absolutely everyone who lives in NYC desperately wants to skateboard up and down Park Avenue …
Fire Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
This was taken on 94th Street and Park Avenue…

Once upon a time, a long lengthy time ago, I lived on Park Avenue for a couple of years just before moving back to the Upper West Side (from whence I had come prior to venturing east to Park Avenue). But I never did personal a skateboard.

But 1 guy that I knew (a quiet, conservative investment banker throughout the day) once rode his bicycle up the middle of the &quotfire lane&quot in Park Avenue at midnight in a drunken stupor, stark naked, whooping and hollering at the leading of his lungs. Amazingly, he got back residence just before any police arrived on the scene.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

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

This set of photographs is primarily based on a quite easy concept: walk every single block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To steer clear of missing something, walk both sides of the street.

That’s 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 is more than I am willing 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, really, there’s a single a lot more small detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly focus on the very first of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken much more than 8,000 images 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 images. So I do not expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photographs, and hope that I will be able to make an objective choice of the ones worth hunting at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to choose the small 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 exactly 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’s genuinely a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third entails time. I am hoping that I’ll take some photos that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who appears at it. Obviously, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I’ll find other, far 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 is not recognizable to a person from another component of the nation, or yet another element of the world, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may be some pictures exactly where a &quotnon-nearby&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/gorgeous/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, shops, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually searching at the pictures about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how much had changed. Little by tiny, store by shop, day by day, things adjust … and when you’ve been around as extended as I have, it really is even a lot more incredible to go back and look at the images you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it genuinely like that back then? Seriously, did individuals really put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be searching at these every single-block images five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, also), I’m 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 concept what we’re calling this decade but). Or possibly they will just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years right after 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 determine that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are one more obvious instance of a time-certain phenomenon and even even though I am definitely not a style expert, 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 actually put on these weird skirts that are brief in the front, and long in the back? Did absolutely everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has a single, which certainly wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it appears that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious focus riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may be going on (amongst other factors, that tends to make it quite simple for me to photograph them with out their even noticing, specifically if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I can’t help asking yourself whether this sort of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have turn into so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single final point: I’ve produced a customized Google Map to show the precise particulars of each and every day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it each day, and the most recent component 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 every day to see exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

If you have any recommendations about areas that I should undoubtedly go to to get some good pictures, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your little 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

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