Saturday, 2pm, Time Stamp, no theme.

Overview:

Participants will make pictures for the Time Stamp project. There is no theme this round. Photograph whatever is happening, or make something happen. However, the catch is that your picture(s) must be made at 2:00pm, your local time, on Saturday afternoon. Post your pictures (up to 3) on this thread. Sit back and await fame and recognition, and maybe a spiffy new virtual award.

If you're new to the Time Stamp idea here's the overview: here at MobiTog we have participants all over the world, in many different time zones. What if everyone made a picture at 2pm on Saturday, of whatever is going on, wherever they happen to be, and share that picture on Time Stamp. We should end up with a global snapshot of what is going on everywhere at 2 pm. This could be ordinary, humorous, puzzling, but it is bound to be interesting. The Time Stamp title comes from the metadata that is added to every new photo at the time it is shot, the creation date and time.


Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE

Rules:

- Standard Mobitog image rules apply. Images must be captured/created & edited entirely on a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet.

- All images must be shot between 2:00pm to 2:10pm, local time. Any editing must be done within that time frame. In other words, don't rely on extensive image manipulation or compositing. These things are allowed, but must be accomplished within the 10 minute window of opportunity. Better to concentrate on capturing a unique moment at 2pm. Be careful not to remove the creation time & date from your image metadata.

- You are free to photograph something actually happening, or nothing happening, or make something happen, or to create your own image from scratch, as long as it and any added parts or layers are photographed within the 2:00 to 2:10pm window of opportunity.

- You may enter up to 3 images. To reward your enthusiasm you can have an extra 5 minutes for each additional image (up to 2), after 2pm for your extra 2 shots. This means, if you choose to enter 3 pictures, your total window of opportunity will be 20 minutes in total. If you are submitting one image your window of opportunity remains the original 10 minutes. Remember, that includes editing time.

- Post your images to this thread. Images posted using the Mobitog app at 1024px are perfectly OK. No need to send high resolution images via Safari.

- Closing date: entries must be posted no later than 2pm the following day (Sunday). There's no point in delaying since any editing must be completed within the official window of opportunity. You can post your images right away after making them but if you happen to be in a situation where this is not possible, you have 24 hours.

- Have some creative fun!

Any questions? Let's try to get them sorted out before the big day.


Now Weekly!:

• Time Stamp has become a regular weekly event! We will stick to the current Saturday at 2 pm time slot for a while until we decide to try some other time. This week will have no theme but other weeks might (so pay attention!).

• There will be an overview after each event to discuss any observations of things of special interest.

• AWARDS! There will be some new virtual awards spontaneously made up as the occasions arise. The award winner will gain the privilege of wearing (flaunting), for one week, the virtual hat/cape/glasses/etc. associated with that award. Topics might be photojournalism, humour, documentary, brilliant observation, street photography, decisive moment, that was unexpected!, quick thinking under duress, inspired making of instant art, doing the best you can in a boring situation, etc. I will present the awards but participants may nominate other participants for awards of merit and even invent new awards as they see fit.

- Imagine being able to wear the Glowing Crown of Omnipotence for a whole week, where your every opinion expressed must accepted and acknowledged as undeniable truth.

Tips on setting alarms: you can use the Calendar app to set 2 alerts. I like to set the first alert 1 hour ahead in case I have completely forgotten (where's my phone!)(my battery is dead). The second alert I set 15 minutes ahead so I can get ready. You can create a second event at the same time for more alerts! Maybe set your alarm clock to go off right at 2pm to make you jump. Set another alarm to let you know when your time is up.

If you would like to join in the fun, just post a message below saying "I'm in!"

Are you training to be a nun, Gouvy?
Huh? How do you come to this idea? Because of bottom before me? I neither kneeled on nor kissed it. It was just the most colourful spot around in the dullness of closed shades, not working AC and sweating people. And outside it was summer! Maybe the last day of. But it was blinking interesting and all in all okay. [emoji4] no wasted time. [emoji4]

You've painted a pretty picture of your fellow attendees Gouvy. :D But at least it was interesting.

I'm in!
Considering that Time Stamp will be so soon after the Apple announcement about the new iPhone 7 and iOS 10 there may be exciting things going on.
Thanks Brian for my last two awards. Sorry, was so busy that I couldn't thank you before and congratulate all the winners or show off my awards by picture. The bus was a great help and so fast that I had a hard to to get some proper pictures. Somehow I haven't found the break only sometimes accidentally. While moving it was even too fast to connect to some wifi so I did what I can when we stopped for a moment. It is one of the coolest awards ever. [emoji106][emoji1]
And the ghostbuster award is awesome, too! And still working. For the first half an hour I couldn't use it, just admired the sparkling sceptre for its beauty. And I did a translation mistake: the painter, well more spayer is called "the ghost of Frankfurt" in your language. Sorry for that.
Did a picture story about a ladybird on Facebook and Instagram through the sceptre. Coooooool! Might have not thought of this without the Jewelled Sceptre of Authority. Must try the taxi function before it is gone, but had no need so far. [emoji4]
Thanks for the gifts and congrats to the winners of TS #42 &#43 zenjenny, JillyG as well as Starzee and ImageArt and Mel mwolfer and thanks to all other posters for letting enjoy me the views into other time zones. Even though I couldn't find time to answer. [emoji8][emoji106]

So, my timing wasn't quite what I wanted it to be... I got my car washed today and that would have been something new & different to shoot, but it didn't happen at 2pm. :confused: So after my farmers market and organic health store purchases, I found myself at home unpacking groceries when the alarm went off.

Been there. Done that. [emoji13]

So I staged a little still life with the bulk spices I bought - you can bring your own jars and they fill them. No waste! [emoji4][emoji106] Here's my cinnamon, tumeric and pink Himalayan salt purchases.

This one edited in Snapseed.

I ran the Snapseed edit through BeCasso and applied the Leonardo oil filter. I thought it made the spices look kind of cool, viscous-y and creamy, sort of.
