NYC Stickball, Jun 2014 – 16

(a lot more specifics later, as time permits)

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

I’m writing these notes about halfway via the 2014 Planet Cup, and I cannot help asking yourself if any person will have the slightest interest in seeing photos about a bunch of guys running about the streets of New York as they hit a little pink rubber ball with what looks like a broomstick. Certainly, the Wikipedia post on stickball (which you can find at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stickball ) tells us that

&quotStickball is a street game related to baseball, typically formed as a choose-up game played in large cities in the Northeastern United States, especially New York City and Philadelphia. The equipment consists of a broom manage and a rubber ball, usually a spaldeen, pensy pinky, higher bouncer or tennis ball. The rules come from baseball and are modified to fit the circumstance, for instance, a manhole cover may possibly be employed as a base, or buildings for foul lines. The game is a variation of stick and ball games dating back to at least the 1750s. This game was extensively well-liked among youths increasing up from the 20th century till the 1980s.&quot

So, what I was photographing right here was certainly not soccer nor was it the far more “traditional” American sport of baseball … and definitely not (American-style) football either. It is a game of its own, although the particular game that I happened to watch and photograph was a variation generally referred to as “fungo” — exactly where the batter tosses the ball into the air and hits it on the way down, or right after one or much more bounces.

Like many of the other genuinely, really excellent days on my 1+ years of photo-walking in NYC, today’s experience was entirely unexpected. I was trudging along 109th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side — and shortly soon after walking via a tunnel that supports the overhead train tracks carrying MetroNorth trains (and Amtrak/Acela, too, I guess) up and down Park Avenue to the final stopping point in Grand Central — I located myself at a corner that has come to be recognized as the “Stickball Hall of Fame Place,” at 109th Street and Third Avenue. Two diverse stickball games were underway, but I was reasonably safe as extended as I stayed on the sidewalks. (If you are interested in the Stickball Hall of Fame, check out this net internet site: northattan.com/2013/10/07/keeping-a-tradition-alive-in-ea… )

As I’ve learned, you can never ever tell when unexpected occasions like this will come about — and they may possibly certainly occur only after a year. Most days out on the street with my camera are fairly blah and numerous (like most of Manhattan’s west side, specifically the area from 57th Street down to 14th Street) are frustratingly unproductive. There are a handful of excellent days, and a couple of very good shots — but a concentrated burst like today takes place only on uncommon occasions …

Hence, when such occasions do happen, it is important to exploit them for every bit they’re worth. Fortunately I realized that today — and decided that I’d be happy to stay on that a single street (109th, in between 2nd and 3rd Avenue) for the complete afternoon. In specific, I made no work whatsoever to leave quickly in order to walk 108th Street, also after all, it will be there tomorrow (and the subsequent day, and the day after that), whereas the photo opportunity may possibly by no means come back again.

Fortunately, I was given the opportunity to meet some of the stickball players, chat with them, discover about their pals and relatives (many told me of beginning to play the game with their own fathers, a lot of years earlier) and offer to send them some images (which, hence far, no one has completed). Possibly one particular of the factors that I have not gotten involved with numerous NYC men and women on the street prior to is that I truly wasn’t especially interested in what they have been doing, and there was no obvious way they could continue carrying out what they were performing with out my being an obvious intrusion. Not so today …

In addition to the still photographs, I took about a dozen video clips, though I didn’t really think of doing so until roughly halfway via the photo episode. But in retrospect, it must have been clear: it is a sports-game, so it depend on motion and the yelling, shouting, and general noise is a really important component of the knowledge, too. So I ultimately started shooting brief 10-20 second clips when every of the batters was about to wallop the ball, and then run on to very first base …

I was tempted to go back to watch the game again next weekend, weather permitting but I already had other commitments for those days, so it didn’t happen. Maybe two weeks from now, or 2 months … or anytime.

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

This set of pictures is primarily based on a extremely easy concept: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what takes place. To keep away from missing anything, stroll both 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’s far 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 1 a lot more small detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually concentrate on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken far more than eight,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus an additional many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the a variety of spots in NYC where I traditionally take pictures. So I do not expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I’ll be in a position to make an objective selection of the ones worth hunting at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilised to choose the modest subset of every-block pictures that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Initial, 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 where that photo was taken, but it is truly a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third requires time. I’m hoping that I will take some photos that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who looks at it. Obviously, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I will uncover other, far 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 another component of the country, or an additional portion of the globe, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may possibly be some images where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer may well 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 keep in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, shops, restaurants, and organization establishments — and then casually looking at the pictures about five years later, and getting stunned by how significantly had changed. Little by tiny, shop by store, day by day, issues modify … and when you’ve been about as extended as I have, it really is even far more wonderful to go back and appear at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did people really put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be hunting at these each and every-block photographs five or ten years from now (and possibly you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my ideal 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 perhaps they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial example of such a time-distinct image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will in the end choose that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are another obvious instance of a time-distinct phenomenon and even though I am certainly not a style expert, I suspected that I will be capable to look at some photos ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we genuinely put on shirts like that? Did females genuinely wear these weird skirts that are brief in the front, and extended in the back? Did absolutely everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that every person has 1, which surely wasn’t correct a decade ago and it appears that every person 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 might be going on (amongst other items, that makes it really straightforward 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 can not support wondering whether or not this sort of social behavior will seem 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 last issue: I’ve developed a customized Google Map to show the precise information of every day’s photo-stroll. I’ll 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 hyperlink

If you have any ideas about locations that I need to definitely check out to get some very good photographs, 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 email me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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