I initial visited London 40 years ago this month — en route to Paris where I had been invited to give a seminar on the intricacies of designing on-line personal computer systems (which was regarded a big deal in those ancient days of batch mainframe pc systems). I’ve been back once or twice a year, each and every year, given that then so you would think I would have observed each and every nook and cranny of the city by now.

Not so, as it turns out: the vast majority of my London visits have involved a taxi ride from Heathrow to a hotel, conference center, or consulting client followed by a number of days of intense operate, often in a windowless conference area and then a taxi back to Heathrow. More than the years, I’ve managed to see Brighton, Bath, Bournemouth, and Buckingham Palace I’ve walked around the mysterious stones of Stonehenge I’ve driven by way of the meadows of the Cotswolds and I’ve even been up to the Isle of Skye. But there are nonetheless an embarrassingly huge quantity of well-known, historic spots that I have not seen in London so on this most recent trip, I decided I should make a specific effort to see at least a couple of them.

I started with Camden Town, which is situated a couple miles north-northwest of Charing Cross in the center of the city. Like every thing else in London, it has a history: Wikipedia tells us that it got its name from Charles Pratt, the first Earl of Camden, that it was laid out as a residential district in 1791, and that it was located on the London canal network. It has turn out to be a tourist attraction these days, with exotic markets and musical venues.

Camden Higher Street runs by means of the center of all this, and that’s exactly where I spent my time watching people, hunting into shop windows, and photographing everything that looked interesting. It is a quick stretch of one-way street that reminded me a lot of Greenwich Village in New York City: there were hippies everywhere, with tattoos, physique piercings, and wildly-colored dyed hair (green, purple, and chartreuse seemed to be really common), along with low cost t-shirt and clothes shops, Indian and Chinese food outlets, and lots of foreign accents from numerous parts of Europe and Asia.

It took a couple of hours to be sure that I had noticed it all and following 400 photographs, I could inform that I was repeating myself, photographing the very same outlandish hippies that I had photographed an hour earlier. I winnowed out 80% of the photos, and kept 80 that seemed to capture the spirit of the place.

And possessing observed it as soon as, I don’t believe I will need to go back and see it once more if I want to see hippies, it’s a lot less difficult to take the subway down to Greenwich Village. But I am glad I saw it, and I’ll move on next to see what I can locate in Piccadilly Circus.

Next time you tell me to put on 1 of those white t-shirts, I am gonna smack you one…

I took this photo in the Hell’s Kitchen location of mid-town Manhattan on a bitter-cold afternoon in early March, while I was tromping along via numerous east-west side streets on my &quotphoto-walk&quot project.

But I in the end decided that it did not genuinely say anything &quotspecial&quot about New York City, nor did it really inform the viewer that all of this was taking place in 2013, or any distinct year in the previous decade. Perhaps an automobile fanatic could look at the vehicle in the background and tell what &quotyear model&quot it is/was — but for most of us, the photo could have been been taken at any point in the previous 20 years. And it could have been taken in any significant city around the world …

So, as a outcome, I’ve decided to file this photo in the &quotmiscellaneous 2014&quot Flickr set. But, for the sake of completeness, I’ve appended the complete description of my &quotevery block&quot project under …

Note: inside moments soon after I uploaded this photo, one of my loyal and long-suffering Flickr close friends did me the honor of &quotfavoriting&quot it … so I’ve changed its status from a restricted &quotfriends &amp loved ones&quot to &quotpublic.

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

This set of images is based on a very basic concept: walk each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To avoid missing something, stroll both sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be far more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that is 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, far more adventurous photographers.

Oh, really, there’s one particular a lot more modest detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact focus on the very first of these &quotevery-block&quot pictures, I will have taken far more than 8,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in NYC where I traditionally take images. So I don’t expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photographs, and hope that I will be in a position to make an objective selection of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve utilised to choose the little subset of every-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. 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 thought when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it really is really a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any individual who looks at it. Obviously, 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, far more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be capable to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to somebody from one more element of the country, or another portion of the world, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may be some pictures exactly where a &quotnon-neighborhood&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 bear in mind wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing numerous shops, retailers, restaurants, and enterprise establishments — and then casually searching at the photos about five years later, and being stunned by how considerably had changed. Small by little, shop by store, day by day, factors modify … and when you’ve been around as extended as I have, it is even much more remarkable to go back and appear at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did men and women really wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these each and every-block photographs five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, also), I am going to be undertaking my best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no notion what we’re calling this decade but). Or possibly they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years soon after 9-11&quot.

Movie posters are a trivial instance of such a time-particular image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I do not know if I will ultimately make a decision that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/types are one more clear instance of a time-certain phenomenon and even even though I’m certainly not a style specialist, I suspected that I will be able to appear at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we truly wear shirts like that? Did women actually wear those weird skirts that are short in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I am fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that everybody has one, which undoubtedly wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it seems that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious focus riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (among other factors, that tends to make it extremely simple for me to photograph them without their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I cannot help questioning regardless of whether this type of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have turn into so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, one particular last point: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of each day’s photo-stroll. I will be updating it every day, and the most recent component of my each and 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 single day to see exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any suggestions about locations that I need to absolutely pay a visit to to get some excellent images, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your tiny 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

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