    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!"

    I’m in but nothing interesting - either shopping or messing around at home I think.

    I was at the Bad Vilbel Castle festival, met some nutrias and geese, found they really got control over the cute rats because I’ve seen only three instead of thirty two years ago, but wondered where all the ducks went. Watched a wonderful and funny play on the stage, had a great salad and good company. But that was yesterday. :lol:
    Because home late I slept longer today and am still home at he moment. To be honest, I don’t think that will change today. Too lazy and too much to do at home. So I thought I’ll give you a balcony update. :)

    Minon and cat are still watching the strawberries growing I planted the JillyG way. Looking forward to replant them next year. :)

    I have my second and probably last bowl of pear tomatoes this year. Only a few more on the plants that make themselves ready to die …

    … in the wilting greens.

    Just had a break with a cup of tea and found the bird feeder empty though it stands in a quite inconvenient place for the bird. It was half filled with sunflower seeds, while the one with the mixed seeds hangs openly on a cloth line and is quite untouched. Need to refill the sunflower seeds and use the mixed only for next year’s weeds pot to grow the spot for the bees. The lion lying underneath is just to make the feeder stable as it’s supposed to hang somewhere and wobbles while standing in the corner. :) And I’m sure I’ve posted this frog before, but it’s a lantern and I have it for years.

    I am so impressed with how many tomatoes you can get from your balcony plants. These yellow toms look amazing.:thumbs:

    Definitely. Sparrows and redstarts and bluetits :)lol: is that really the name! Flying tits are no swear words?! :lol: :lol:)
    I caught them many times when entering the balcony. But far too quick for the camera. – even aimed.

    No surprise: keep in mind the tomatoes are just cherry sized and the bowl is a little dessert dish. :D And second bowl means I’ve collected another two weeks. And keep them just outside in the dish so the picked ones can still ripen while waiting for their siblings. :)

    That’s exactly when you need a mini tripod and remote release.

    Instead of being at home, I found myself rushing off to the ‘golf doctor’, my pro coach, Nick in Grayshott. I’ve been playing disastrous golf since I got back from SA and usually it’s something small and Nick sorts it out for me.

    He coaches from the grounds of the Grayshott Spa where they have a mashie course (a 9 hole course with holes that are 3 par). Very fortuitously, my lesson was due to start at 2.15pm but I had to rush because I needed to get my clubs and trolley out of the car and put on my golf shoes once I had taken my photos.

    The main building is a beautiful old manor house, called Grayshott Hall, parts of which date back to 1167 but it has been extensively renovated over time with the tower being added in 1886 and I would imagine that little of the original house exists.

    Apologies but I started photographing at 1.56 to make sure I was not late.

    Walking past the little roundabout at the front of the house, I could not miss out on photographing these lovely flowers which were covered in bees:

    No edits for all images. First three native camera, last Halide.

    Just wonderful images, Brian.

    I have finally given in and ordered the Moment case and the macro lens. I miss taking macro shots so much I just have to give it a go. I’m not convinced about the Portrait Lens yet.

    You seem to do well photographing bees. They always fly off when I start stalking them. Are you the bee whisperer? Love the vines growing on the front of the building.

    Thanks, Ann. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the Moment Macro. I just wish they made more macro lenses of different magnifications.

    You have to come in quickly as they land and start their gathering. If they have been on the flower for a while you are doomed. I can only ever do it with the native camera and x2.

    Today is the last day of my road trip (how did that happen??) and I’m in Rhode Island hanging out with a friend. She took me to a funky place called The Umbrella Factory, although there are no umbrellas in sight. o_O

    It’s a lush garden with winding paths, a fountain and small koi pond, shops selling stuff like jewelry and tie-dyed t-shirts, plants for sale, a fab lunch spot with framed record covers on the walls, chickens running around, and..... Emus. Very eclectic and my kind of place! We stopped by on Thursday but it was closed, so made our way back today.

    That’s a bizarre looking tomato. Interesting texture.
