Time Stamp - Phase 3

Anybody getting into the Christmas spirit?

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.

I’ll be there at the Time Stamp Café, warming up with some hot chocolate by the fire. You might stop in the help decorate the Time Stamp Café Christmas tree.

I'll be there! I love decorating trees.... I think I'll have some egg nog though, with a shot of brandy for good measure. :sneaky:

Here is my dining room decorated tree and my sideboard decoration which I make from old Xmas decorations, holly and fir branches from the garden. I choose purple and silver because we got Christmas crackers on sale a couple of years back that were purple.

Have to invoke time shift, but only five minutes earlier. I thought the alert in my pocket was the final call and not the 5 to one. So I sneaked out from our Christmas lunch and took some pictures from before the location.

The “Gerippte” up left. “Gerippte” is the name for the Äppelwoi (Apple wine = cider) glass. It has a similar structure like this building and like the Gherkin or other buildings in London names where chosen by the public.

More flat but nicely graphically the building right opposite.

It seems like you did a lot in a very short amount of time. That cylindrical building with the triangle windows is quite unusual.

I’m so late uploading these! :grin: I almost forgot... I blame it on yesterday’s Prosecco. :mobibabe: Also I didn’t get home until 9:30pm. At 2:00pm I was having brunch with an old friend; every December we get together to celebrate our Sagittarius awesomeness. :D The restaurant was super crowded but we nabbed a great spot at the bar, two end seats sort of in a corner so it was much quieter than in the main room.

(Just now noticing those odd giant burlap-sack-looking objects on the building across the street... no idea what those are for.)

After brunch we wandered around the city, and I thought these soaps were hilarious.

A very nice set of photos. Lively place. You did a good job grabbing some photos without attracting attention. The view through the wreath is so clear I thought at first it was a mirror rather than a window. The photo really draws attention to the burlap sacks. I wonder what they are. The soap display is lively and colourful, and very entertaining names. $8.95 for a bar of soap?

Amazing how those words on the soaps will make them sell when they probably wouldn’t get a look at all.

I’d never want to use them because I wouldn’t want to take off the wrapper! :D
