The strange sight here was triggered by a puff of wind that blue the female’s dress up somewhat. However just slightly: it didn’t go any greater than this … though I’m not sure she would even have actually seen.
This set of photos is based upon an extremely basic idea: stroll every block of Manhattan with an electronic camera, and see exactly what takes place. To avoid missing anything, walk both sides of the street.
That’s all there is to it …
Of course, if you desired to be more ambitious, you could likewise walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s more than I’m willing to commit to at this moment, and I’ll leave the staying districts of New york city City to other, more adventurous photographers.
Oh, really, there’s one more small detail: leave the images alone for a month– unedited, unblemished, and unviewed. By the time I in fact focus on the very first of these “” every-block” pictures, I will have taken more than 8,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side– plus another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in New York City where I generally take photos. So I do not expect to be mentally attached to any of the “” every-block” photos, and hope that I’ll be able to make an objective choice of the ones worth looking at.
As for the requirements that I’ve utilized to choose the small subset of every-block pictures that get published to Flickr: there are three. Initially, I’ll publish any picture that I think is “” fantastic,” “and where I hope the response of my Flickr-friends will be, “” I have no concept when or where that photo was taken, however it’s truly a great picture!””
. A 2nd criterion involves place, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some pictures that plainly state, “” This is New York!” “to anyone who takes a look at it. Clearly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion; but I’m hoping that I’ll find other, more unanticipated examples. I hope that I’ll have the ability to take some shots that will make a “” regional” viewer say, “” Well, even if that’s not recognizable to somebody from another part of the country, or another part of the world, I understand that that’s New york city!” “And there might be some images where a “” non-local” viewer may state, “” I had no idea that there was just about anywhere in New york city City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/ incredible.””
. When it comes to the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering around my area in 2005, photographing different stores, stores, dining establishments, and business facilities– then casually looking at the images about 5 years later, and being stunned by how much had actually changed. Gradually, shop by shop, day by day, things change … when you’ve been around as long as I have, it’s even more remarkable to return and look at the pictures you took thirty or forty years back, and ask yourself, “” Was it really like that at that time? Seriously, did people really use bell-bottom jeans?””
. So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every-block images 5 or 10 years from now (and possibly you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my best to record scenes that communicate the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or a minimum of sometime in the years of the 2010’s (I have no concept exactly what we’re calling this decade yet). Or possibly they’ll just state to us, “” This is what it resembled a dozen years after 9-11″”
. Movie posters are an unimportant example of such a time-specific image; I’ve currently taken a lot, and I don’t know if I’ll ultimately decide that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are another apparent example of a time-specific phenomenon; and even though I’m certainly not a style professional, I thought that I’ll have the ability to look at some images 10 years from now and mutter to myself, “” Did we truly wear t-shirts like that? Did women actually wear those strange skirts that are short in the front, and long in the back? Did everyone in New york city have a tattoo?””
. Another example: I’m captivated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has one, which certainly wasn’t real a decade ago; and it appears that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious attention riveted on this little box-like gadget, absolutely unconcerned about anything else that may be going on (among other things, that makes it really easy for me to photo them without their even seeing, particularly if they have actually also got earphones so they can pay attention to music or continue a phone conversation). But I cannot assist questioning whether this sort of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … specifically if our cellphones have ended up being so miniaturized that they’re integrated into the glasses we use, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.
Oh, one last thing: I’ve developed a tailored Google Map to show the precise details of every day’s photo-walk. I’ll be upgrading it every day, and the most recent part of my every-block journey will be marked in red, to distinguish it from all the older sections of the journey, which will be revealed in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it each day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this link.

If you have any recommendations about places that I need to certainly visit to get some great photos, or if you ‘d like me to picture you in your little corner of New York City, please let me understand. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can email me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com.
Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …
