New Yorkers do all sorts of silly issues, like carrying balloons across the street …

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

This set of photos is based on a very easy idea: stroll each and every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To steer clear of missing anything, 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 is much more than I am willing to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, far more adventurous photographers.

Oh, in fact, there’s one far more small detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact focus on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken more than eight,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus yet another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC where I traditionally take pictures. So I don’t count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I will be capable to make an objective selection of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to select the modest subset of every single-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I will 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 concept when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it is genuinely a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third requires time. I am hoping that I will take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who appears at it. Obviously, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Creating or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will find other, much more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to someone from one more component of the nation, or an additional element of the planet, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may possibly be some photos exactly where a &quotnon-local&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no concept that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/gorgeous/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, stores, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually seeking at the photographs about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how considerably had changed. Small by little, store by shop, day by day, factors modify … and when you’ve been about as long as I have, it is even more amazing to go back and look at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did people really wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these every-block pictures five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, also), I am going to be doing 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 concept what we’re calling this decade however). Or possibly they will just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years following 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial example of such a time-specific image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I never know if I will in the end make a decision that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/designs are yet another obvious instance of a time-certain phenomenon and even although I’m certainly not a style professional, I suspected that I will be able to look at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did ladies actually wear those weird skirts that are quick in the front, and extended in the back? Did every person in New York have a tattoo?&quot

One more instance: I’m fascinated by the interactions that folks have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that every person has 1, which undoubtedly wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their complete conscious consideration riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may be going on (amongst other things, that makes it very easy 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 not aid asking yourself whether this kind of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … specifically if our cellphones have grow to be so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, one particular final factor: I’ve developed a customized Google Map to show the precise information of every single day’s photo-walk. I’ll be updating it every single day, and the most current portion 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 every day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any ideas about areas that I must undoubtedly go to to get some great 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 email me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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

Urban Mural, Street Art: Floating Calavera & Heart Balloon, Phoenix, Arizona

This vibrant mural featuring a rainbow-circled sunrise (or possibly it really is a sunset) and a skull (calavera) floating in a physique of water with a jigsaw heart balloon tied to it, is situated at 120 E. Roosevelt Street in Phoenix, Arizona. It is painted on the west exterior wall of Golden Rule Tattoo.

Street artist: Lalo Cato

From the Roosevelt Row web site:
Roosevelt Row Arts District (RoRo) is a walkable, creative district in the urban core of downtown Phoenix that is nationally recognized for its arts and cultural events, award-winning restaurants, galleries, boutiques and reside music. RoRo is fostering an urban renewal with rehabilitated bungalows and new infill projects. The Arts District connects downtown Phoenix to historic neighborhoods such as Garfield, Evans Churchill, F.Q. Story, Willo, Roosevelt, Historic Roosevelt and Grand Avenue.

Roosevelt Row has been a essential mixed use area from the earliest days of the establishment of Phoenix. Several of the concrete sidewalks in the neighborhood had been poured in 1909, three years prior to Arizona officially became the 48th State. In the early 1940s, when there have been around 30,000 men and women living in Phoenix, many firms had been established along Roosevelt Street. The flower shop at Fifth Street and Roosevelt has been in continuous operation since 1948.

In the 1970s, parts of the region had been re-zoned as a higher-rise incentive district major to land speculation and a decline of the neighborhood that lasted until the late 1990s.

The blighted region was appealing to artists simply because the boarded-up buildings and former crack houses have been reasonably priced for studio and gallery space. The arts were a main issue in the revitalization of the location and crime rates plummeted as more people began to venture into the location to knowledge the cultural vibrancy.

The corridor is re-emerging as one particular of the most dynamic areas in downtown Phoenix and a valued cultural resource in the metropolitan region and the state.

The preceding day I had spoken to this girl regards to her red ink tattoo. I was just lining up this photograph to get the crowd shot and noticed ‘love’ inked on her back. Thought it was a great fit for the photo.

In Wellington, I saw this mask stenciled on the street. It looks like Te Moro, which is a classic Maori facial tattoo. The stencil was a bit mangled, but I was somewhat taken by the distortions, and snapped a picture. There turned out to be numerous other people of this design and style about town — most of them a lot more cleanly applied than this — but for some purpose, this was the a single that stuck with me.

Were you in historic downtown Kenton for the 4th Annual Kenton Street Fair?

If you did, you saw Bamboo Craftsman’s grinning silver skull divebomb Denver in the crazy coaster contest close to classic vehicles brought in by Mackin’s Auto Physique to raise income for the Junior Diabetes Analysis Foundation even though five full stages of bands set the soundtrack for skateboarders, pony rides, food carts, dancing, and much more.

Thanks to every person who came out!
