Time Stamp - Phase 3

New Changes to Time Stamp: We have decided to dispense with the Wrap-up and the Grand Wrapper-Upper and see how that goes. No more favourite photo picked each week. In addition to posting our 2pm photos and the usual exchanges about photos and stories, the focus has changed to enjoying Time Stamp as a happening in itself.

If you have any ideas to make Time Stamp more fun please share them with us.
-------------------------------------
Join the intrepid Time Stamp team for Saturday, 2pm, adventures!

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 made, the creation date and time.

Normally there is no theme, but it could happen sometime so watch out:). Set your phone alarm or alert to go off at 2pm. Wherever you happen to be at that time make some photos that tell us something about your location, what you are doing, what you see, whatever is happening, or make something happen. An important detail is that your picture(s) must be made between 2:00pm to 2:20pm, your local time, on Saturday afternoon. Post your pictures (up to 3) on this thread. See what others are doing in many places around the world.

If you would like some extra challenge to your Time Stamp activities make use of the opportunity to develop your ability to come up with good photos on the spot, or on demand, even when it seems there is nothing around to work with, and even if you don’t feel the least bit inspired. To discover the extraordinary among the ordinary. This is the skill of a photojournalist. Too often people only make photos when they feel inspired or when the weather is nice. It is about learning and personal growth. Sharpening your powers of observation and then igniting creativity to create something out of nothing. It is also the ability to make a good photo that can stand on it’s own without relying on a bunch of editing to prop it up. Time Stamp is also about sharing how you feel about the situations/subjects you discover.

Rules:
• Standard Mobitog image rules apply. Images must be captured/created & edited entirely on a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet. Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE
• 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.
• In addition to the regular (up to) 3 images, you are now allowed to post one additional image, if you want, 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.
• 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.

Time Shift Exemption: This applies to special events happening 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. Try not to overuse this loophole.

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!

Time Stamp is hereby declared an acronym-free zone.

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!"

Tuning up the official Time Stamp multi-dimensional time warp clock in preparation for Saturday. Naturally the 12th Sonic Screwdriver was the best tool for the job.

Getting prepared for an iPhone photography workshop I’m presenting this afternoon at 1 pm. Mostly Keynote plus some live demonstrations.
It seems very much like telling a story or performing in a play. Everything fits in a particular unfolding order.

We got home from a walk around 1:45, hurrying the last few minutes as the sky darkened and thunder was heard. About 10 minutes later the deluge started, so at 2... we were at home. We've been having storms daily to every other day for the last week. The forest is a veritable garden of fungi.

On our way home from a stressful, exhausting week in Wisconsin. Worked on our house for the better part of Monday through Friday.

Stopped for coffee/caffeine in Salem, Illinois. Got back to the car and and my alarm was telling me it was 2PM.

We'll probably stay the night southeast of Nashville. Too sore to even consider stopping in Nashville.

At 2pm I was on a NJ Transit train heading into the city for a work event... the photos were a bit bland, so I jazzed them up with Snapseed and a funky VSCO filter.

Lots of drips from branches.

Raindrops kept hitting my screen and setting new focus points as I was trying to make my pictures.

A tiny spider web in a plant.
Moment cam, Moment Macro, and Snapseed.
Edit: this is the first time I have ever seen rain impacting my screen and changing the focus points I had set. I would tap on the screen to set the point I wanted then before I made my shot suddenly see it jump to a different spot maybe way off to one side or the other. It took me a couple of minutes to realize the new point was where a raindrop had just hit. I didn’t think that was possible. I’ll have to check into the capacitive touch business to see if I can learn what is going on.

Look at that rain running off the roof. Love your picture through the screen.

We were back at my sister’s house after a morning of DIY shopping at 2pm. She has the most gorgeous house. I just love her style and wish that I had her talent for putting together decor.

All Snapseed.

I happen to catch her taking down one of her plants to water.

Yes, it’s true. You DH looks like someone who takes life as it comes and is pretty calm about it. Or, maybe he just looks good when you are making pictures. :)

Looks like her house is all ready for a home magazine photoshoot. Mr Frog appears to be getting ready for an important pronouncement.

All beautiful photos. Lucky I don't have a rain suit or a water resistant phone - no temptation to go out in the rain

It’s really quite nice if you can stay mostly dry. In a way rather liberating to do the opposite of what I would normally do, which is head for cover. I learned early on in the rainsuit days to make sure my pant legs were outside my rubber boots instead of tucked in as I would normally do in the dry. I’ve also photographed in the rain with an umbrella when keeping my camera dry was a higher priority.
