Saturday, 2pm, TimeStamp is hereby declared an acronym-free zone.

Overview:

Participants are invited to 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.

Rules: Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE

• 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 photographed and edited between 2:00pm to 2:20pm, 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 20 minute window of opportunity. Better to concentrate on capturing a unique moment at 2pm.

Secret tip: This isn't strictly a photo contest. Good reportage or storytelling can get you lots of bonus points. Helping other people discover some place near you is another way to get bonus points. Make a connection.

• In addition to the regular (up to) 3 images, you are now allowed to post one additional image, if you want to, to help "set the scene". This image should be described as "to set the scene" or "setting the scene", or "the location" or something similar, to clearly identify it because it won't be counted as part of your submission of 3 photos.

• 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 2:20pm window of opportunity.

NEW! Time Shift Exemption: This applies to special events happening 2 or 3 hours outside the usual Time Stamp window. If you think the event is significant enough and that others would like to see it you can claim the Time Shift Exemption and move your 2pm to fit the event. This is a test to see how it works.

Post your images to this thread.

Closing date: entries must be posted no later than 2pm the following day (Sunday). 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.

• 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!"

I arrived back home from grocery shopping and it's pouring with rain. This means desperate measures! Took a photo of the dying rose climber and one of me in front of a double mirrored cupboard. The first one is just the roses with Coherence and Vibrance in iColorama. The second is a blend of them both in iColorama using Brushes. Just finished in time!

I like this composition -- the figure in one of the two mirrors - cool.

Now that I'm back home in front of my computer and with a cold beer at hand, here's a few more pics...

Cultural/historical exhibition part II

iPhone SE, minor editing done straight from the native cam app.

Fact: I was a bit slow to get dressed and get my back outside, the bus was late - and so slow that I nearly lost my temper and social skills. So, between 13:55-14:10 I still sat on that gdmn bus...

Pic 1 is from the bus ride. Nice view, anyway.

The gate of the cemetery.
Four all-butter croissants, two punnets of locally-grown strawberries and raspberries later, I was home.:D

My husband has a Triumph Bonnieville T120. He's of scooting, as we speak. Err, write.
Nice shot. Love the reflection.
Bonnie T120...mmm..great motorcycle.I choose the Triumph because I saw the film The Great Escape with Steve McQueen,and Triumph was the motorcycle of my grandpa.All my friends have or Harley Davidson or Moto Guzzi...I was always different of others,not because I wanted to be,I just didn't want to be like others...

I was feeling Macro-deprived since they haven't made the Moment case for the 7 Plus yet so I decided I would borrow Fabi's 6 and put on the old Moment case to use my Macro. The best laid plans and all that... Fabi left in the car just before I asked for her iPhone.
I decided to try some multiple exposures in the wind. When I would press the shutter the wind would die down.

For the first time in a really long time (maybe ever in the history of Time Stamp?) I forgot it was TS Saturday. :feet: 2:00pm found me finishing up my wee jar of garlic dill refrigerator pickles, made with the cukes I bought at the farmers market today.

Sooooo easy (apple cider vinegar+water+salt+dill seed+peppercorns+garlic).

My kitchen garbage can which feels more like a compost bin..... I really miss my compost pile. Feels so wasteful just throwing out scraps.

I was coming back from the dump when the 2 PM alarm went off. Fortunately, I drove by this little pocket cemetery.

Actually this is the first photo that I took. I was waiting for the Hipstamatic camera to open as these guys pedaled by. Luckily, it opened in time.

All done in Hipstamatic.
