New York kids love scooters …

Another picture that nearly made it … however not quite. I liked the energy of the lady and her dad … and while I understand that it was a dad and child, since I existed on the scene (how else do you believe the photo got taken, huh?), I believe most viewers would pertain to the same conclusion …
However I ultimately decided that I didn’t truly like the appearance on the woman’s face (not planned as a criticism at all– you should see the stupid look that I have on my face on those unusual events when I attempt riding a scooter, which typically ends with me flat on my back on the sidewalk …).
And I chose that while it was interesting to see the girl with her dad, there wasn’t actually anything special going on. I guess you might determine that this was all taking place in NYC by looking at the bus on the left side of the photo … but there is certainly absolutely nothing else that “” speaks” to the idea of a NYC-centric view of the universe.
Oh, well, they can’t all be winners.
Keep in mind: hmm … among my Flickr good friends chose to “” fave” this image, for which I’m rather pleased. And so I’ve decided to make it public, just in case anyone else wishes to see it too.
This set of photos is based on an extremely basic concept: stroll every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To avoid missing anything, stroll both sides of the street.
That’s all there is to it …
Obviously, if you wished to be more enthusiastic, you might also stroll the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. However that’s more than I’m ready to dedicate to at this moment, and I’ll leave the remaining districts of New york city City to other, more daring photographers.
Oh, in fact, there’s another small detail: leave the photos alone for a month– unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually concentrate on the first of these “” every-block” pictures, I will have taken more than 8,000 images on the close-by streets of the Upper West Side– plus another a number of thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different areas in New York City where I typically take images. So I do not expect to be emotionally attached to any of the “” every-block” photos, and hope that I’ll be able to make an unbiased choice of the ones worth taking a look at.
As for the requirements that I’ve used to choose the little subset of every-block images that get submitted to Flickr: there are 3. Initially, I’ll publish any image that I think is “” great,” “and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, “” I have no idea when or where that image was taken, but it’s really a terrific picture!””
. A 2nd requirement relates to location, and the 3rd involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, “” This is New york city!” “to anybody who takes a look at it. Clearly, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would please that requirement; however I’m hoping that I’ll discover other, more unanticipated examples. I hope that I’ll be able to take some shots that will make a “” regional” audience say, “” Well, even if that’s not identifiable to someone from another part of the country, or another part of the world, I know that that’s New York!” “And there might be some pictures where a “” non-local” audience may state, “” I had no concept that there was anywhere in New York City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/ incredible.””
. When it comes to the sense of time: I remember wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various stores, stores, restaurants, and service establishments– then casually taking a look at the photos about five years later on, and being stunned by just how much had altered. Bit by bit, store by store, day by day, things alter … when you’ve been around as long as I have, it’s even more remarkable to go back and take a look at the photos you took thirty or forty years back, and ask yourself, “” Was it really like that at that time? Seriously, did individuals really use bell-bottom denims?””
. So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every-block photos five or 10 years from now (and maybe you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or at least at some point in the years of the 2010’s (I have no concept exactly what we’re calling this years yet). Or possibly they’ll simply state to us, “” This is exactly what it resembled a dozen years after 9-11″”
. Movie posters are a minor example of such a time-specific image; I’ve currently taken a lot, and I do not know if I’ll eventually decide that they’re worth publishing. Women’s fashion/styles are another apparent example of a time-specific phenomenon; and even though I’m absolutely not a style professional, I believed that I’ll be able to take a look at some images 10 years from now and mutter to myself, “” Did we truly wear t-shirts like that? Did ladies really wear those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and long in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?””
. Another example: I’m captivated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellular phones out on the street. It seems that everybody has one, which certainly wasn’t true a years back; and it seems that everyone strolls down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious attention riveted on this little box-like device, absolutely oblivious about anything else that may be going on (to name a few things, that makes it really simple for me to picture them without their even seeing, particularly if they have actually also got earphones so they can pay attention to music or continue a phone discussion). However I cannot help questioning whether this sort of social habits will seem bizarre a years from now … particularly if our cellphones have ended up being so miniaturized that they’re included into the glasses we use, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.
Oh, one last thing: I have actually created a customized Google Map to reveal the exact details of each day’s photo-walk. I’ll be updating it each day, and the most current part of my every-block journey will be marked in red, to separate 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 this link.

If you have any suggestions about places that I ought to absolutely check out to obtain some excellent pictures, or if you ‘d like me to photo 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 directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com.
Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …
