New Yorkers like to stroll their dogs

A handful of good Eye Tattoos images I found:

New Yorkers like to walk their dogs

The lady that you will see at the end of this tiny video clip had obviously seen the other guy, with his 4 small dogs … and she veered off to stand against the building wall (off the left side of the frame) for a couple of moments till he and his dogs had gone previous …

By the way, this video was shot with my new iPhone6. If you want to see other images and videos taken with that camera/telephone, as nicely as an explanation of why I am doing it, take a look at

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

This set of photographs is primarily based on a extremely basic notion: stroll each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To stay away from missing something, walk both sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be much more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s far more than I am willing to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, a lot more adventurous photographers.

Oh, truly, there’s one particular a lot more tiny detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly focus on the 1st 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 one more numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in NYC where I traditionally take photographs. So I don’t count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I’ll be in a position to make an objective choice of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to pick the small subset of every single-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. Very 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 notion when or where that photo was taken, but it’s truly a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I will take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who appears at it. Naturally, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll discover other, far more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be in a position to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to an individual from another part of the nation, or another part of the globe, I know that that is New York!&quot And there might be some images where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may well say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/lovely/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 business establishments — and then casually looking at the photographs about 5 years later, and becoming stunned by how considerably had changed. Small by little, store by shop, day by day, items change … and when you have been around as long as I have, it’s even much more amazing to go back and look at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it truly like that back then? Seriously, did individuals actually wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

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

Movie posters are a trivial instance of such a time-distinct image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll eventually decide that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are one more apparent instance of a time-certain phenomenon and even even though I’m undoubtedly not a style specialist, I suspected that I will be able to appear at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really wear shirts like that? Did women truly wear these weird skirts that are brief in the front, and long in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I am fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has one, which undoubtedly wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it seems that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious interest riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may well be going on (among other items, that tends to make it very straightforward 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 can not help questioning whether this kind of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have turn out to be so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single 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 every day, and the most current part 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 and every day to see exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any ideas about areas that I must absolutely pay a visit to to get some good images, 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 e mail me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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

What a day! I am annoyed but shit takes place, life goes on [after the thrill of living is gone].

Initial off, someone snipped my ear off this morning, NOT really but verbally.
Second off, I forgot all about my Sociology quiz. The last one particular until the final, possibly, depends. I panic rereading the chapter and hunting up some words. Cramming never functions! I got +17/40. Barf. I was so lost on a essay question I wrote anything along these lines, &quotI wrote this in magic marker, if I could read it I’d inform you the answer&quot, witty as ever.
Third off, individuals BEGGING to see my tattoo. Certain it is nice that men and women are interested but rolling up your pant leg gets annoying soon after about the sixth time. Expecially when I am showing a group then I roll it back down and an individual whines, &quotI didn’t see it!&quot whatever you shed your opportunity.
Fourth off, two folks, whom are best buddies, but are type of in a &quotfight&quot want to do one thing with me Saturday. I can not pick both. Or one or the other. Neither it appears.
Fifth off, I dislike getting invited to issues I’d like to do but, hate the dislike of possessing to figure out a ride. So I finish up staying residence, sad. I comprehend my &quotcar totally free living&quot does have some limitations when living in a suburb.

If you read that all, sixth off, wow. I did not even include everything. . . just a day of madness. At least tomorrow is super Tuesday! Yay caucus!
