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.

On the news this evening (Thursday) I heard there are still lots of people in New Brunswick without power. Some won’t get power until late tomorrow. Another weather system coming this weekend. So many trees down on wires. It’s fortunate the weather has been good for repair crews. There are still trees leaning on power wires near us even though the power is back on.

Wow... that's a long time to be without power and it's not even winter yet. :barf: I hope it's not an omen of things to come.

So many people have lost all the food in their freezers and refrigerators. Last year I went half and half with a neighbour on a backup generator for just such occasions. We just run it enough to keep the food supplies safe and don’t bother with other stuff. Even so it relies on a steady supply of fuel to run it. Fortunately the local gas station has a backup generator to keep the gas pumps working. Assuming we can get there.

We were on day 2 of our Great Ocean Road walk at 2 standing on a cliff edge having our afternoon snack. The walk has been incredible with amazing views of the coast. It’s Spring so everything is in bloom. (More to follow on my travel thread, as my internet access is limited. )

As usual on a saturday, I'm in the garden finishing off the bike shed. But I've posted about that previously so here's some snaps around the garden.
Water on the trampoline.

A frost damaged, autumn rhubarb leaf.

And flaking paint on the back of the out house. Although why someone would paint an outside red brick wall a slightly different shade of red is beyond me.

Wonderful close-ups... I agree re the brick wall....and I'm flummoxed why anyone would paint a brick wall at all! They do it here too. :rolleyes:

Actually I'm being disengenouos, we could only afford this house because it had been so badly run down by the previous owners. They had done things like cement up air bricks because the guttering was leaking and dripping next to the airbricks meaning that room had no ventilation and became damp.
They built walls upstairs without support causing the joists and floor to warp.
Turns out the kitchen sink had been empying into the cavity wall for years because the plumbing was so bad. That leached back in the house under the room that theyed blocked the air bricks up so the damp was multiplied.
Red paint on a red wall is probably one of the more rational descisions they made.

This morning started out with snow and then rain, also fog. At 2pm I decided to walk up the road and enjoy the fog.
Along the driveway the Euonymus bush has lost all its crimson leaves revealing plenty of red berries that were previously unnoticeable.

After the first frost the Robins became very interested in the berries.

It felt like the clouds were touching the ground today.

That’s the old one room schoolhouse. This farm field across the road is the only area nearby not forested.

Looking to the right from the last view. No flat ground around here. The land is rolling and understanding water runoff and drainage is an essential part to understanding the land.

Not much interesting going on here... I do happen to have 2 fairly recent additions to my small space. I don’t have a lot of kitchen countertop, and wanted a small cart to open up a bit of space. I searched Facebook Marketplace and Letgo and saved a couple that I thought might work. Well, as the Universe is wont to do, a friend of a friend was selling hers for $40 and it was just what I was looking for. :) And then I found this mid-century fruit bowl on Etsy. Yay!

Fog is one of my all time favorite things... I don’t see it often enough. These are beautiful.

The Cape Enrage lighthouse is about 12km from here, as the crow flies, and we often hear the fog horn when it’s quiet enough here. It tells us it is often foggy out on the bay even when it is clear here. I would estimate there are about 75 days with some fog visible from here every year.
