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.

At 2 PM we were in our hotel room, getting ready to go for a walk. Here’s the view from our window.

We walked by the Northern Territory parliament buildings. In the above picture you can see it in the far upper left.

It appears to be warm and dry considering the clarity of the view. The parliament building has a lot of very unusual angled braces visible, especially just under the roof. I imagine the climate is very much an antidote for what we’re getting here - cold and wet.

It’s warm (actually hot) and very humid (humidity 60-80 %).

Ouch! Tomorrow we’re going south east to a national Park where the high temperature is forecast to be about 39° C.

It’s warm (actually hot) and very humid (humidity 60-80 %).
This is one of the reasons I love Time Stamp... we can get winter and summer all in the same day. :)

Cool.... the architecture is really interesting... a sort of Miami feel, but different.

How was the flight, and the jet lag? That part (to me) seems like such a hurdle to overcome going somewhere this far.

I’m in! Getting chilly here. Freezing overnight with snow likely tomorrow.
:fearscream: And i‘m In!

Only one picture. Wrapping the birthday gifts for my friend I’m going to see in about an hour to our annual midnight newspaper work at the old opera in Frankfurt. Will leave shortly after posting this. Please all cross fingers, this year it will be even harder: lots of new people involved. Still hoping we’ll make it again in time.

Here is my Hipstamatic image while wrapping:

I am in my idea of heaven! :inlove: A natural environment FULL of animals and birds. It's 2pm, 29 degrees C and we have just had one big mother of a rain storm, the rainy season having started early this year. We had an almighty one last night but our truck game drive this morning was in very pleasant overcast weather.

I bet you’re having a great adventure. Want to trade places? Our coldest overnight temperature so far is -3°C.

Fabi took the car so I was on foot. I went up into the soggy woods. To set the scene, here’s a bit of the old woods trail in the woods behind my house. My back yard.

Hmmm. There seems to be a theme being unearthed.

It’s a grey drizzly day today.... started off super windy but that’s died down (bummer, because I love it when it’s windy and stormy :D ) and I wasn’t motivated to go do anything. At 2:00pm I was walking back from the sales office, having popped over to sign my 2019 lease (how have I lived here almost 4 years already???)

Here’s some bits I grabbed from the “quad”...
