Rosie

So by now, you all know Rosie – at least in the two dimensional globe of photography anyway. So I won’t bore you with paragraph after paragraph of how stunning she is, what an amazing model she is, how great it is to work with her. As I mentioned right after my 1st shoot with her, she is the most gorgeous girl Ive met, the greatest model Ive ever worked with and such wonderful firm. For each and every and each and every image of her from now on, every statement in the prior statement is implied.

So I got in my car this morning, and following the habitual stop at Costa’s to wake myself up, I arrived at a set of wooden security gates at the entrance to Rosie’s home. As they opened and I drove in, I parked the small Mini Cooper in between the Ferrari and the Porsche and was greeted by a pair of dogs who were both bigger than the automobile I was too nervous to get out of. They are, for the record, named Panther and Bear which did tiny to quell my worries about them consuming me, or even worse, my camera. But I do them an injustice, as they are two of the sweetest and funniest dogs you are ever most likely to meet. 1, the aforementioned Panther, is a labrador the colour of milk chocolate and the other, Bear, a Rottweiler with a head larger than my camera bag. Luckily for me, they seemed to like me and I was permitted to proceed towards the converted barn with an furry escort on either side. Nonetheless, I digress, as it was not them I was here to work with.

Rosie tends to make a imply cup of coffee (even if it did expire about the time of the Russian revolution (1917 for any person who cares). And it was over this cup of coffee that we spent at least the first two hours of hour shoot performing absolutely nothing else but sitting there talking. See this is the difficulty when a model and a photographer get on so properly – they never ever take any bloody photos. I arrived at 11am and it was at least 1pm ahead of I even fired off a test frame. We talked about everything, from the size of the universe to the problems with contemporary music. She listened, I spoke, I listened, she spoke. We talked about the big things, the tiny issues, and the massive factors. I study her some of my book (Im an author also), we sat, we joked, we got sat on by dogs. The only issue we didn’t do, was take pictures.

As the hour arrived somewhere about 2pm, we lastly decided to take some pictures and even even though the light was extremely erratic, we managed to capture some pretty authentic hunting photos in the numerous rooms in her residence. In fact, its not so a lot of a residence, rather a villa. Its a enormous barn conversion with original beams littering the ceilings and a light and airy feel with makes it possible for an enormous amount of light to perforate the windows and reduce its way across the space. We worked in her lounge, her landing, her hallway, her bathroom – everywhere. We got about 400 pictures in all and in my opinion, they are better than the previous set we did the other day. They are much more genuine, more believable and I consider the viewer will really feel portion of the image. I consider you will really feel like her boyfriend. And speaking of her boyfriend…

I met Carl at 1st in the morning, and finally as I was about to leave. What a fantastic guy he is and he is Rosie’s excellent match. Usually in life, individuals gravitate towards their opposite but with Rosie and Carl, they have found in every single other a person who is each their twin and reverse. They are poles apart but on flanking pages and they are two of the loveliest folks Ive met. Carl is a fascinating guy who, in some ways, is comparable to myself (though I never own a Ferrari and Im not 6ft four). He’s fantastic guy to speak to and just before I left, he, Rosie and I resumed the topic of completely anything and continued to talk until the sun disappeared. They are an remarkable couple and Im glad I got the likelihood to devote a little bit of time with them in their amazing property. For after, as this does not happen very typically in the world of photography, I believe Ive gained a pair of buddies. Thank you each!

In New York, every person appears at absolutely everyone … including the actors on the side of a bus

Some cool Eye Tattoos images:

In New York, everybody looks at everyone … which includes the actors on the side of a bus

This was taken at the north end of Verdi Square, i.e., at the corner of 73rd Street and Broadway. For photographers like me, it really is a excellent men and women-watching spot: you can sit comfortably on 1 of the stone benches in Verdi Square, watching folks stroll down Broadway and deciding no matter whether they are photo-worthy as they get close enough to really snap their picture. Indeed, sometimes they cross the street and stroll correct previous you, and you can be busily snapping dozens of photos of them, while they chat happily with every other and ignore you totally.

You can also watch folks cross from the west side (of Broadway, off to the left) or the east side (from Amsterdam Avenue, which is a little off the correct-side frame of this photo), presenting themselves for a short couple of seconds in front of the enormous granite stones of the old Central Savings Bank (which was turned into an pricey coop apartment constructing a couple of years ago). And occasionally they, also, make a sharp southward turn, to stroll previous you on their way into the 72nd Street subway station instantly behind where this photo was taken.

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

This set of images is based on a very easy concept: walk each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To keep away from 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’s much more than I’m 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, in fact, there’s one particular a lot more modest detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I really focus on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken much more than eight,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus one more many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the a variety of spots in NYC where I traditionally take pictures. So I never anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I’ll be in a position to make an objective choice of the ones worth hunting at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to choose the small subset of each and every-block pictures that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. Initial, I’ll upload any photo that I believe 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 actually a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third includes time. I’m hoping that I will take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who appears at it. Naturally, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will uncover other, 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 someone from one more component of the nation, or one more component of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there might be some images exactly where a &quotnon-nearby&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, stores, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually searching at the photographs about five years later, and being stunned by how considerably had changed. Little by little, store by retailer, day by day, things adjust … and when you’ve been about as extended as I have, it’s even more wonderful to go back and appear at the images you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it genuinely like that back then? Seriously, did individuals genuinely wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

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

Film posters are a trivial example of such a time-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will eventually decide that they are worth uploading. Women’s fashion/types are an additional clear example of a time-certain phenomenon and even though I’m absolutely not a style specialist, I suspected that I’ll be able to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we actually wear shirts like that? Did ladies truly put on those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did every person in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional instance: I’m fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that every person has 1, which undoubtedly wasn’t correct a decade ago and it seems that every person walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious focus riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that might be going on (amongst other factors, that tends to make it really easy 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 cannot assist questioning whether this type of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have grow to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, 1 last thing: I’ve designed a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of every day’s photo-walk. I’ll be updating it each day, and the most current portion 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 where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

Dinshaw sings “The Boxer” at Pier 45
Eye Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
I spent Sunday afternoon down at Pier 45 in Greenwich Village, mainly to photograph the tango dancers out at the finish of the pier. But I got there early (as I constantly appear to do), so I wandered around to a few other locations, such as the Hudson River Cafe at the foot of the pier — exactly where men and women have been enjoying a glass of cold beer in the dazzling vibrant sunshine…

There was a guy named Dinshaw playing the guitar over in a corner, so I located a quiet spot and did my best to record a couple of of his songs. He says he’s got an email list, but I do not know its address yet … and he does not have a web site however, so I can’t give you any specifics on how to track him down. But as you’ll hear him clarify on a single of the other videos I’ve uploaded, he plays at this spot on Thursdays and Sundays … almost certainly by means of the remainder of the summer time, and maybe as long as the climate stays good.

Dinshaw might not be Paul Simon or Art Garfunkel, and the video is probably beneath-exposed for the first minute or two. But I nonetheless feel it’s a good rendition of “The Boxer,” and I consider you’ll like it.

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

This set of photographs is primarily based on a really simple notion: walk each and every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To avoid missing anything, 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 far more than I am willing 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’s one particular more little detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly focus on the very first of these &quotevery-block&quot photos, I will have taken more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus one more many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC where I traditionally take images.

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third includes time. I’m hoping that I will take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who looks at it.

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, retailers, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually searching at the photos about five years later, and getting stunned by how much had changed. Tiny by small, shop by shop, day by day, things adjust … and when you’ve been about as lengthy as I have, it is even much more incredible to go back and look at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it truly like that back then?

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?

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).

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.

Every New Yorker knows this constructing, but most never know how it got its name…

A few good Indian Tattoos photos I discovered:

Each New Yorker knows this constructing, but most do not know how it got its name…
Indian Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
This photo was taken of the famous Dakota apartment/condo, at the northwest corner of Central Park West and 72nd St — constructed among 1880 and 1884.

New Yorkers (and a lot of other people, as well) know that this is the Dakota, where John Lennon lived with his wife Yoko Ono lots of other celebrities and rich, popular men and women have lived right here as well (which includes Lauren Bacall, Leonard Bernstein, Connie Chung, Rosemary Clooney, Roberta Flack, Judy Garland, Boris Karloff, Warner LeRoy, John Madden, Rudolf Nureyev, Joe Namath, Jack Palance, Maury Povich, Gilda Radner, and Rex Reed). Tragically, John was killed by Mark David Chapman on December eight, 1980 when he was leaving via the entrance that you can see on the left side of the constructing.

As for the name of the building: Wikipedia informs us that &quotaccording to often repeated stories, the Dakota was so named because at the time it was built, the Upper West Side of Manhattan was sparsely inhabited and deemed as remote as the Dakota Territory. Nonetheless, the earliest recorded appearance of this account is in a 1933 newspaper story, quoted in Christopher Gray’s book New York Streetscapes: ‘Now Central Park West is amongst the most desirable and high-priced Real Estate locations, aside from the Upper East Side It is more probably that the building was named &quotDakota&quot due to the fact of Clark’s fondness for the names of the new western states and territories.’ Higher above the 72nd Street entrance, the figure of a Dakota Indian keeps watch.&quot

For a lot more specifics, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dakota

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

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

That is 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 much more than I am willing 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 particular much more small detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I really concentrate on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photos, I will have taken a lot more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the a variety of spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take pictures. So I never anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I’ll be capable to make an objective selection of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to select the little subset of every-block pictures that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Very 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’s genuinely a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third involves time. I am hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who appears at it. Certainly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I will discover other, a lot 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’s not recognizable to somebody from yet another element of the nation, or another portion of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may well be some pictures where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer may well say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/gorgeous/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I bear in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, retailers, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually searching at the images about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how much had changed. Little by small, store by shop, day by day, items adjust … and when you have been around as lengthy as I have, it’s even more amazing to go back and look at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it truly like that back then? Seriously, did people genuinely put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be seeking at these each and every-block images five or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, as well), I am going to be doing my greatest 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 yet). Or possibly they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years soon after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial example of such a time-specific image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I never know if I’ll ultimately decide that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are one more apparent instance of a time-certain phenomenon and even even though I am absolutely not a style professional, I suspected that I’ll be in a position to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we actually put on shirts like that? Did women genuinely put on these weird skirts that are quick in the front, and long in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that folks have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that absolutely everyone has 1, which definitely wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it appears that absolutely everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious focus riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (among other things, 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 telephone conversation). But I cannot assist asking yourself 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 straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, one final issue: 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 current part 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 exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any recommendations about places that I must absolutely go to to get some good images, 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 e-mail me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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