I took eight pictures of this young woman, as she leaned against a metal railing and basked in the golden light of the late afternoon.

In my standard fashion, I only uploaded a single of the photographs, feeling that the rest were so similar that they would be considered redundant. But one particular of my loyal Flickr fans suggested that it would be nice to see the other people … so I’ve completed so.

This is the shot that I did upload initially. Whether or not it is truly better than the other variations is some thing I will let you judge for yourself.

(But possibly you can appreciate, now, why I never do this much more often: if I uploaded all of the shots that I take in a &quotburst,&quot even omitting the ones that are out-of-concentrate, or obscured by a random automobile driving previous at precisely the wrong moment, my Flickr archives would be ten times bigger than they are already. And you would be really, very bored following seeking at so several comparable pictures of what is basically the exact same scene…)

Note: I chose this as my &quotphoto of the day&quot for Oct four, 2014. I might select it for October 5th, as well … but that’s tomorrow, and, properly, tomorrow is a new day. Who knows, I may possibly find a photo that I like even far better…

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

This set of images is based on a quite straightforward notion: stroll every single block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To steer clear of missing anything, stroll 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 walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s a lot more than I am 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, in fact, there is one particular far more small detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact concentrate on the 1st of these &quotevery-block&quot pictures, I will have taken far more than eight,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus yet another several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take photos. So I never expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot images, and hope that I’ll be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to pick the modest subset of every single-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I’ll 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 concept when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it’s actually a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third entails time. I am hoping that I’ll take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who appears at it. Naturally, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I’ll discover other, 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 someone from yet another component of the nation, or another portion of the globe, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there might be some images exactly where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no thought that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, retailers, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually hunting at the pictures about five years later, and becoming stunned by how much had changed. Small by tiny, retailer by retailer, day by day, things adjust … and when you’ve been around as extended as I have, it’s even a lot more amazing to go back and look at the images you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it really like that back then? Seriously, did folks actually put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be searching at these each and every-block pictures 5 or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, too), I am going to be performing my ideal 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 yet). Or possibly 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-particular image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll ultimately make a decision that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/styles are one more clear example of a time-specific phenomenon and even although I’m undoubtedly not a style expert, 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 females really wear those weird skirts that are short in the front, and long in the back? Did absolutely everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that absolutely everyone has 1, which surely wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it appears 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 may be going on (among other factors, that makes it extremely effortless for me to photograph them with out their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I cannot aid asking yourself regardless of whether this type of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have turn out to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, 1 last factor: I’ve produced a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each and every day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it each day, and the most recent component of my 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. You can see the map, and peek at it each day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

If you have any recommendations about areas that I should certainly go to to get some good images, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your small corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can e mail me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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