Have a look at these marvel women images:
Often it’s really hard to determine why some people are so popular with New York women …

This set of images is based on a very simple idea: walk every block of Manhattan with an electronic camera, and see what takes place. To avoid missing out on anything, walk both sides of the street.
That’s all there is to it …
Naturally, if you desired to be more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s more than I’m willing to devote to at this point, and I’ll leave the staying districts of New york city City to other, more daring professional photographers.
Oh, actually, there’s one more small detail: leave the pictures alone for a month– unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact concentrate on the first of these “” every-block” photos, I will have taken more than 8,000 images on the close-by streets of the Upper West Side– plus another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various areas in NYC where I generally take images. So I do not expect to be mentally attached to any of the “” every-block” photos, and hope that I’ll have the ability to make an objective selection of the ones worth looking at.
As for the requirements that I have actually utilized to pick the little subset of every-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. Initially, I’ll upload any image that I believe is “” fantastic,” “and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, “” I have no concept when or where that picture was taken, however it’s really a fantastic photo!””
. A 2nd requirement pertains to place, and the third includes time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some images that clearly say, “” This is New York!” “to anyone who takes a look at it. Clearly, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Structure or the Statue of Liberty would please that criterion; but I’m hoping that I’ll find other, more unanticipated examples. I hope that I’ll be able to take some shots that will make a “” regional” audience state, “” Well, even if that’s not identifiable to someone from another part of the country, or another part of the world, I understand that that’s New York!” “And there may be some pictures where a “” non-local” viewer might say, “” I had no idea that there was just about anywhere in New york city City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/ spectacular.””
. As for the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering around my community in 2005, photographing numerous stores, shops, dining establishments, and service facilities– and after that delicately taking a look at the images about five years later on, and being stunned by just how much had changed. Bit by bit, store by store, day by day, things alter … when you’ve been around as long as I have, it’s a lot more amazing to return and look at the images you took thirty or forty years back, and ask yourself, “” Was it really like that at that time? Seriously, did people really wear bell-bottom denims?””
. So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every-block images five or 10 years from now (and maybe 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 idea exactly what we’re calling this decade yet). Or perhaps they’ll just state to us, “” This is what it resembled a lots years after 9-11″”
. Movie posters are an unimportant example of such a time-specific image; I have actually currently taken a bunch, and I do not understand if I’ll eventually choose that they’re worth publishing. Women’s fashion/styles are another obvious example of a time-specific phenomenon; and even though I’m absolutely not a fashion professional, I presumed that I’ll be able to look at some images 10 years from now and mutter to myself, “” Did we truly use shirts like that? Did women actually wear those odd skirts that are brief 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 appears that everyone has one, which definitely wasn’t real a decade back; and it appears that everyone strolls down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious attention riveted on this little box-like gadget, absolutely unconcerned about anything else that might be going on (to name a few things, that makes it very easy for me to picture them without their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone call). But I cannot help questioning whether this sort of social habits will appear strange a years from now … especially if our cellphones have actually become so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.
Oh, one last thing: I have actually developed a tailored Google Map to reveal the precise information of every day’s photo-walk. I’ll be upgrading it each day, and the most current part of my every-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be displayed in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it each day to see where I have actually been, by clicking this link.

If you have any recommendations about locations that I must definitely check out to obtain some excellent images, or if you ‘d like me to photograph 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 …
