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

This set of photos is primarily based on a quite simple concept: walk each and every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To steer clear of missing something, stroll 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 walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s much more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, much more adventurous photographers.

Oh, in fact, there is a single a lot more modest detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually concentrate on the very first of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken far more than eight,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus one more many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take photos. So I don’t count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I will be able to make an objective choice of the ones worth hunting at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to select the small subset of each and every-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I’ll upload any photo that I feel is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, &quotI have no idea when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it really is actually a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third requires time. I am hoping that I will take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any person who looks at it. Naturally, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll uncover other, a lot more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be capable to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to an individual from yet another portion of the nation, or one more component of the world, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there might be some photos where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer may possibly say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so intriguing/beautiful/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, shops, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually searching at the photographs about 5 years later, and becoming stunned by how a lot had changed. Little by little, store by store, day by day, issues change … and when you have been around as long as I have, it is even a lot more incredible to go back and appear at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it truly like that back then? Seriously, did individuals really wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be seeking at these each and every-block photos five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, as well), I’m going to be carrying out my best 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 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 after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial instance of such a time-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I’ll in the end decide that they are worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are another apparent example of a time-certain phenomenon and even though I’m undoubtedly not a fashion expert, I suspected that I will be capable to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we actually put on shirts like that? Did women truly put on those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and extended in the back? Did every person in New York have a tattoo?&quot

One more instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has one, which definitely wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their complete conscious focus riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (among other things, that makes it very straightforward 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 telephone conversation). But I cannot help wondering whether 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 put on, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single final point: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise information of each day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it every single day, and the most current part of my every single-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 exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

Most of the sunglasses look to be blue … but you are going to sometimes see some that are bright green …

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

This set of photos is based on a extremely simple idea: stroll each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what takes place. To stay away from missing something, stroll both sides of the street.

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

Oh, truly, there’s 1 more tiny detail: leave the photographs alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact focus on the 1st 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 an additional numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC where I traditionally take images. So I do not anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I will be in a position to make an objective choice of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to select the modest subset of each and every-block images that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. Very first, I’ll upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no concept when or where that photo was taken, but it is truly a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third includes time. I am hoping that I’ll take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who looks at it. Clearly, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will find other, far 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 someone from an additional component of the country, or one more component of the planet, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may possibly be some images where a &quotnon-nearby&quot viewer may possibly say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, stores, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually seeking at the photos about five years later, and becoming stunned by how much had changed. Tiny by little, store by retailer, day by day, issues modify … and when you’ve been about as lengthy as I have, it really is even a lot more remarkable to go back and look at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did men and women really put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these each and every-block images five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, too), I am going to be carrying out 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 however). Or possibly they’ll 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 currently taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll ultimately choose that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/styles are one more apparent example of a time-certain phenomenon and even though I’m undoubtedly not a fashion expert, I suspected that I will be capable to look at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did ladies really put on these weird skirts that are short in the front, and extended in the back? Did absolutely everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I am fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that everyone has a single, which surely wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that every person walks down the street with their eyes and their complete conscious consideration riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may be going on (amongst other things, that tends to make it extremely simple 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). But I cannot support asking yourself whether this sort 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, 1 final thing: I’ve produced a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of each day’s photo-walk. I will be updating it each and every day, and the most recent element of my every single-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
