New Yorkers will take benefit of an empty seat …. even if they hate pizza

This photo was taken on Lexington, amongst 78th &amp 79th St.

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

This set of images is based on a really simple idea: stroll each and every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what takes place. To keep away from missing vanything, walk each 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. But that’s a lot more than I am prepared to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, far more adventurous photographers.

Oh, actually, there’s a single far more small detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I really focus on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot photos, I will have taken a lot more than eight,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC where I traditionally take pictures. So I do not expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I’ll be able to make an objective choice of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to pick the modest subset of every-block images that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Very first, I’ll upload any photo that I feel is &quotgreat,&quot and exactly where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it’s really a terrific image!&quot

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 any person who looks at it. Naturally, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll find 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’s not recognizable to somebody from one more part of the nation, or another component of the world, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may be some photos where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no notion that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, shops, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually looking at the pictures about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how much had changed. Little by little, retailer by retailer, day by day, things alter … and when you’ve been around as lengthy as I have, it’s even much more remarkable to go back and appear at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &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 seeking at these every single-block photographs five or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, too), I’m going to be carrying out 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 thought what we’re calling this decade yet). Or possibly they will 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-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will in the end choose that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are an additional obvious instance of a time-particular phenomenon and even although I am absolutely not a fashion expert, I suspected that I’ll be capable to appear at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did girls truly wear those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional example: I am fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that every person has one, which certainly wasn’t correct a decade ago and it appears that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious interest riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (amongst other issues, that makes it really effortless for me to photograph them with no 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 support wondering whether or not this type of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … specifically if our cellphones have grow to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single final factor: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of each day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it every single day, and the most current 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 single day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

This woman was on the other side of these two guys who have been sitting subsequent to me. They were so clearly Bulls fans they could have had it tattooed on their forehead. Everytime one particular of the Bulls made a shot, they screamed at the top of their lungs. Everytime they missed, the guys would yell obscenities and pound the bar. So sometime about the 3rd quarter, she turns to them and says &quotso which group are you rooting for?&quot I virtually stated &quotthey’re rooting for the team that escorts dumb bitches out of sports bars since they are wasting a perfectly great seat with their brain that is as well basic to comprehend the concepts of winning and losing&quot but instead I let her yammer on for the next 20 minutes about how much she likes buying in Chicago. Whatever. She’s beyond assist.
