    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!"

    We just had our tea (Schnipposa = Schnitzel, Pommes (=Chips) and Salad) and I squeezed out to find the WiFi in front of the hotel for a quick post.
    Having lots of fun!
    Cheers to all of you!!

    At 2pm we were at the Farmer’s Market in Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue and had been there since about 9:30 am. My brother was playing music at the market and needed to be there to set up for 10am. By 2pm things were pretty well over and people were starting to pack up.

    Here’s a link to an interactive 360 panorama at the market: http://pnr.ma/cvngmf
    Here is the flat pano for reference.

    My brother was set up behind these two people and to the right a bit. He was using wireless transmitters for voice and guitar so he could wander around a bit. These two performers on stilts came along and they started a spontaneous jam together. This last frame was extracted from video.

    A German SciFi series, broadcasted first in 1966 with seven episodes and in black & white. And it's still my all time favourite TV show. The English never saw it, but it was meant to be called "Space Patrol" (not to mix up with the English marionette program) the German title was Raumpatrouille – the adventures of the space ship ORION.
    Just to give you an idea without Wikipedia:


    At approx the same time Star Trek started in America, but in full colour and many more episodes to improve the characters. :)

    I'm here as well...here being Chicago. We were talking a walk in the park that surrounds the Museum of Science and Industry. It was beautiful sunny day as summer starts to slide into fall. There is a series of small of lakes/ponds in the park (which itself sits on the shore of Lake Michigan.)
    Here's a view looking north towards the museum (which can't be seen.)

    Chicago has a vast amount of public art. Here's a Yoko Ono installation.

    I was at home allllll day..... :( Nothing around my place seemed very *new* or inspiring, but I was actually creating an image - playing around with a new app - when the alarm went off, and saved it at 2:07pm...

    THIS IS FANTASTIC!! It has all the requirements for a spot on my all time favorite bad sci-fi. I’m off to search YouTube for episodes.

    That looks like a wonderful farmer’s market!! Even performers on stilts! I was going to go to my farmers market yesterday but realized I had a bunch of veggies I bought Monday night that I needed to eat up still.

    Nice you joined us, too. Very nice pictures again with beautiful sky. Science and industry? Sounds like a very interesting museum. Have you been in already?

    I'm afraid they are all German. But some you can find with English subtitles. And there is the producer's cut no real fan can watch as they cut the seven hours down to an hour and added connection clips to tell in a few sentences what you miss or doing some … errrrm jokes. It might be okay for people seeing this for the first time and it makes a story, but fans like me (who saw it every episode about 100 times) see it as a collage, within my brain I jump with every cut to the certain episode and complete the dialogues of what's missing. But the film had indeed subtiles on DVD. The ones for tv show you hopefully find on Utube are mostly fan made. Good luck and enjoy the entertainment. At least the ships are beautiful pieces of art.

    It's hard for us to go indoors when it's so nice out.
