Some New Yorkers are extremely old-fashioned

Some cool Music Tattoos photos:

Some New Yorkers are very old-fashioned
Music Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
This photo was taken on 12th St in between Hudson and Washington, in Greenwich Village.

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

This set of pictures is primarily based on a extremely straightforward concept: stroll each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To avoid missing something, stroll both sides of the street.

That’s 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 more than I am prepared to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, much more adventurous photographers.

Oh, actually, there is 1 more modest detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I really concentrate on the 1st of these &quotevery-block&quot pictures, I will have taken much more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus yet another several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC where I traditionally take images. So I never anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photographs, and hope that I’ll be capable to make an objective choice of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to pick the little subset of every single-block images that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Initial, I will upload any photo that I think is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, &quotI have no notion when or where that photo was taken, but it’s genuinely a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third includes time. I am hoping that I’ll take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any individual who looks at it. Naturally, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Creating or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I’ll locate other, much 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 an individual from an additional portion of the country, or yet another component of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may be some images exactly where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer may possibly say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, stores, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually looking at the photos about 5 years later, and being stunned by how much had changed. Small by little, store by store, day by day, issues alter … and when you have been about as long as I have, it is even a lot more amazing to go back and appear at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it truly like that back then? Seriously, did folks truly put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

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

Film posters are a trivial instance of such a time-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll eventually make a decision that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/types are one more obvious instance of a time-distinct phenomenon and even though I am certainly not a style specialist, I suspected that I will be able to appear at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we actually put on shirts like that? Did females actually wear those weird skirts that are quick in the front, and long in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that absolutely everyone has 1, which definitely wasn’t true a decade ago and it seems that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their complete conscious consideration riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (amongst other factors, that tends to make it extremely simple for me to photograph them without their even noticing, specifically if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I can’t support wondering no matter whether this sort of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … specially if our cellphones have turn out to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

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

If you have any ideas about places that I must certainly check out to get some very good photographs, 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 straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

Note: this photo was taken on 42nd Street, among Sixth and Seventh Avenue, on a bitter cold winter’s day on January 15th of 2014 …

The photo speaks for itself …

Note: I chose this as my &quotphoto of the day&quot for Feb 16, 2014.

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

This set of photos is primarily based on a quite simple notion: stroll each and every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To avoid missing anything, walk each sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be much more ambitious, you could also stroll the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that is far more than I’m 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, in fact, there is a single far more modest detail: leave the photographs alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact concentrate on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken more than eight,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC where I traditionally take images. So I never anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I will be in a position to make an objective selection of the ones worth seeking at.

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

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third requires time. I am hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any person who looks at it. Obviously, particular 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, much 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 component of the nation, or yet another element of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may be some images where a &quotnon-local&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no notion that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, stores, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually hunting at the pictures about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how significantly had changed. Tiny by tiny, shop by retailer, day by day, things change … and when you’ve been around as lengthy as I have, it is even a lot 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 men and women genuinely put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these each-block photos 5 or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, also), I’m going to be carrying out my greatest 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 idea what we’re calling this decade however). 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 example of such a time-distinct image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will ultimately determine that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are yet another obvious example of a time-certain phenomenon and even though I am definitely not a style expert, I suspected that I will be able to appear at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really wear shirts like that? Did ladies truly put on those weird skirts that are quick in the front, and extended in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Another instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that every person has a single, which undoubtedly wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that every person walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious focus riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (amongst other factors, that tends to make it extremely effortless for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation).
