Metrosideros outlines

This is the drawing I produced as the basis for a tattoo design. It is a stylized branch of Metrosideros polymorpha (ʻŌhiʻa lehua, native to Hawaiʻi). The design was completed by Fred Vaoliko at Pacific Tattoo (Paekakariki, Aotearoa). The similarity of ʻŌhiʻa lehua to the NZ native Pōhutukawa (M. excelsa) was 1 of the reasons I chose this plant for the design. Pōhutukawa are ubiquitous in San Francisco, where I reside, and are among my favourite trees here.

This is what a typical New York family members appears like …

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

Check out these Eye Tattoos pictures:

This is what a common New York family appears like …
Eye Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
This photo was taken on 101st Street, amongst Broadway and Amsterdam.

In the background is a fenced-off school playground…

As for the family: well, not every person in NYC appears specifically like this indeed, we have so man nationalities and cultures right here that you can uncover just about something you want. I’ll show some other examples of family scenes from time to time, as my photo-stroll continues …

Note: I chose this as my &quotphoto of the day&quot for Jul 11, 2013.

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

This set of photographs is based on a really simple notion: stroll each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To keep away from missing something, walk each sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

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

Oh, truly, there’s a single much more small detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact concentrate on the 1st of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the a variety of spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take pictures. So I do not count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot images, and hope that I’ll be capable to make an objective choice of the ones worth hunting at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilized to pick the little subset of each and every-block images that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. First, I’ll upload any photo that I believe 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 really is actually a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third entails time. I’m hoping that I will take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who appears at it. Obviously, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll uncover other, 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 is not recognizable to a person from an additional element of the country, or yet another component of the planet, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may well be some photos exactly where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no concept that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, retailers, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually searching at the images about 5 years later, and becoming stunned by how much had changed. Small by tiny, shop by retailer, day by day, items modify … and when you’ve been about as extended as I have, it is even much more incredible to go back and look at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it really like that back then? Seriously, did individuals actually put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be searching at these each and every-block photographs five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, also), I’m going to be undertaking my very 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 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 instance of such a time-particular image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I’ll in the end choose that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are an additional clear instance of a time-distinct phenomenon and even though I am certainly not a style professional, I suspected that I’ll be able to appear at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really wear shirts like that? Did women actually put on those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and long in the back? Did every person in New York have a tattoo?&quot

One more example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that men and women have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everybody has a single, which certainly wasn’t true a decade ago and it seems that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious interest riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may possibly be going on (amongst other things, that makes it really simple for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I can not support questioning whether this sort of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … specially if our cellphones have grow to be so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, 1 final point: I’ve designed a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each and every day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it each and every 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 each and every day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this hyperlink

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

New Yorkers agree with this statement … even even though they are not quite positive what it implies

Check out these Music Tattoos photos:

New Yorkers agree with this statement … even even though they’re not very sure what it signifies
Music Tattoos

Image by Ed Yourdon
Note: this photo was taken on the corner of 54th Street and 11th Avenue (as you can confirm by seeking at the street-sign on the extreme left side of the photo), on a glaring-vibrant, but bitter-cold, afternoon in early March 2014. specifically one month prior to I ultimately finished editing and uploading the photo to Flickr.

I have to admit: I really don’t know what this sign signifies. But it does not matter … or, turning it around, it really does matter. Due to the fact every little thing matters.

Especially here in New York …

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

This set of pictures is primarily based on a extremely simple idea: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To keep away from missing anything, 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 walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that is much more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, a lot more adventurous photographers.

Oh, actually, there is a single a lot more tiny detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly concentrate on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken a lot more than eight,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus one more many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take pictures.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilised to choose the tiny subset of each-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Initial, I’ll 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 thought when or where that photo was taken, but it really is actually 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 images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who looks at it. Clearly, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Building 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 able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to somebody from yet another part of the nation, or one more portion of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there might be some images exactly where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/gorgeous/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I bear in mind wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, retailers, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually seeking at the images about five years later, and being stunned by how significantly had changed. Tiny by small, shop by store, day by day, issues change … and when you have been around as long as I have, it really is even a lot more remarkable to go back and appear at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did individuals actually wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be looking at these each and every-block images 5 or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, as well), I’m going to be undertaking 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 thought what we’re calling this decade however). Or maybe they will just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years right after 9-11&quot.

Did girls truly put on those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and long in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

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 one, which definitely wasn’t true a decade ago and it seems that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious consideration riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may be going on (among other issues, that tends to make it very straightforward for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, specifically if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation).

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

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I started in the summer season of 2008 (which you can see in this Flickr set), and continued throughout 2009 (as shown in this Flickr set): a random collection of &quotinteresting&quot people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, specifically along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. These are the people in my neighborhood, aka &quotpeeps in the ‘hood.&quot

As I indicated when I initial started this project, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I generally use a zoom telephoto lens in order to photograph them even though they’re nevertheless 50-100 feet away from me but that means I have to continue focusing my focus on the individuals and activities half a block away, rather than on what is correct in front of me. At times I locate an empty bench on a busy street corner, and just sit quietly for an hour, watching men and women hustling past on the other side of the street they’re virtually constantly so busy listening to their iPod, or speaking on their cellphone, or daydreaming about one thing, that they never appear up and see me aiming my camera in their path.

I’ve also discovered that, in several situations, the opportunities for an exciting picture are quite fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, just before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or quit performing what ever was exciting. So I’ve discovered to maintain the camera switched on, and not be concerned so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed image … soon after all, when the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it is fairly trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the major topic. Indeed, some of my most intriguing photos have been so-known as &quothip shots,&quot exactly where I don’t even bother to raise the camera up to my eye I just preserve the zoom lens set to the maximum wide-angle aperture, point in the general direction of the topic, and take a number of shots. As extended as I can maintain the shutter speed pretty high (which occasionally demands a relatively higher ISO setting), I can usually get some fairly crisp shots — even if the topic is walking in a single path, and I’m walking in the other path, whilst I’m snapping the pictures.

With only a couple of exceptions, I’ve usually avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless folks. There are a couple of of them around, and they would undoubtedly generate some dramatic pictures but they usually never want to be photographed, and I do not want to really feel like I am taking advantage of them. There have been a handful of possibilities to take some &quotsympathetic&quot photographs of such individuals, which may well inspire other people to attain out and help them. This is one example, and here is yet another instance.

The other thing I’ve noticed, whilst carrying on this project for the previous 3 years, is that whilst there are lots of exciting folks to photograph, there are far, far, far much more people who are not so exciting. They’re probably fine individuals, and they may even be far more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just absolutely nothing memorable about them. They are all part of this large, crowded city but for greater or worse, there are an awful lot that you won’t see in these Flickr sets of mine…

Maybe the music would sound much better if I had worn my other pants
