NYC manages to squeeze its fire stations into the tiniest spaces …
Eye Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
This was taken on 7th Ave &amp We 10th St.

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

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

Oh, in fact, there’s one more little detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly concentrate on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot pictures, I will have taken a lot more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus yet another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take images. So I never count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot images, and hope that I’ll be in a position to make an objective selection of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilised to choose the modest subset of each and every-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. 1st, I will upload any photo that I think is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-buddies will be, &quotI have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it’s genuinely a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with location, 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 looks at it. Naturally, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Creating or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I will uncover other, a lot 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 somebody from yet another portion of the country, or one more component of the world, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may well be some photographs exactly where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/gorgeous/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I bear in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, stores, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually searching at the photographs about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how a lot had changed. Little by small, store by retailer, day by day, issues change … and when you’ve been about as lengthy as I have, it’s even more remarkable to go back and appear at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it truly like that back then? Seriously, did men and women actually wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be searching at these each-block photos five or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, as well), I’m going to be performing 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 concept what we’re calling this decade however). 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 instance of such a time-distinct image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will in the end make a decision that they are worth uploading. Women’s fashion/designs are another obvious instance of a time-particular phenomenon and even even though I am absolutely not a fashion expert, I suspected that I’ll be in a position to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we genuinely put on shirts like that? Did girls actually put on those weird skirts that are quick 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 men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that everybody has a single, which surely wasn’t correct a decade ago and it appears that absolutely everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious attention riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (amongst other things, that makes it really 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 cannot assist asking yourself whether or not this kind of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

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

If you have any suggestions about areas that I need to certainly go to to get some good photographs, 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 email me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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

Oatman, Arizona (1)
Fire Tattoos

Image by Ken Lund
Oatman is a former mining town in the Black Mountains of Mohave County, Arizona, United States. Located at an elevation of 2700 ft/896m, it started as a tent camp soon following two prospectors struck a million gold discover in 1915, although the area had been already settled for a quantity of years. Oatman’s population grew to more than 3,500 in the course of a year.

Soon after a couple of other names, Oatman was named in the posthumous honor of Olive Oatman, a young Illinois girl who was kidnapped by (presumably) Yavapai Indians and forced to function as a slave. She was later traded to Mohave Indians who adopted her as a daughter and had her face tattooed in the custom of the tribe. She was released in 1855 near the present internet site of the town.

In 1921, a fire burned down several of Oatman’s smaller buildings, but spared the Oatman Hotel. Constructed in 1902, the now-Oatman Hotel is the oldest two-story adobe structure in Mohave County, a Mohave County historical landmark and is specifically well-known as the honeymoon stop of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard[3] right after their wedding in Kingman on March 18, 1939. Gable fell in adore with the area and returned typically to play poker with the miners. The Gable/Lombard honeymoon suite is one particular of the hotel’s main attractions. The other is &quotOatie the Ghost.&quot &quotOatie,&quot actively promoted by the hotel’s present owners, is a friendly poltergeist whose identity is believed to be that of William Ray Flour, an Irish miner who died behind the hotel, presumably from excessive alcohol consumption. Flour’s body wasn’t found until two days after his death and it was hastily buried in a shallow grave close to exactly where he was found.

1924 would see United Eastern Mines, the town’s main employer permanently shut down operations. By 1941, the remainder of the town’s gold mining operations had been ordered shut down by the US Government as element of the country’s war effort considering that metals other than gold were required. Oatman was fortunate insofar as it was located on busy U.S. Route 66 and was in a position to cater to travelers driving in between Kingman and Needles, California. Even that benefit was quick-lived as the town was fully bypassed in 1953 when a new route among Kingman and Needles was constructed. By the 1960s, Oatman was all but abandoned.

Oatman has undergone a renaissance of sorts in recent years thanks to burgeoning worldwide interest in Route 66 and the explosive growth of the nearby gaming town of Laughlin, Nevada, which promotes visits to the town. Wild burros freely roam the town and can be hand-fed carrots and &quotburro chow,&quot both readily accessible in practically each retailer in town. Though typically gentle, the burros are in fact wild and signs posted all through Oatman advise guests to physical exercise caution. The burros are descended from pack animals turned loose by early prospectors, and are protected by the US Department of the Interior. Weekends in Oatman can see anything from classic auto rallies to mock &quotWild West&quot shootouts proper down the middle of old 66. Independence Day celebrations contain a contest where participants try to cook an egg on the sidewalk with the help of solar devices. Along with the rest of Arizona’s US 66 towns, Oatman is fiercely proud of its Route 66 heritage and replicas of 66’s black-on-white US highway shield are posted all more than the town. Route 66 souvenirs abound and many tourists have pasted autographed one-dollar bills on the walls and ceiling of the Oatman Hotel’s bar and restaurant. Estimates of the quantity of bills run into the thousands.

From Laughlin, Needles or Bullhead City, Arizona, Oatman is a quick drive on State Route 95 to its intersection with Boundary Cone Road in Fort Mohave. About ten miles (16 km) east of SR 95, Boundary Cone Road meets with old 66, now named the &quotOatman Highway.&quot Oatman is only about four miles (6.five km) from there.
