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.

Not many pictures nor a big story today. Was occupied by flue the whole week and yesterday, soon I was home, the chills struck me down and I was able to sleep it away until some minutes ago. Decided to stay in bed today to get really rid of it. So I started to watch Bones …

I guess this is my only chance to post a picture of our Christmas tree on Time Stamp.
9BFF1FFC-74C8-485C-B29B-A4E72A8BCEFE.jpeg

Daytime is not the best time to get a picture of the tree and also be able to see the lights. I chose this angle to avoid more windows and sky.
The tree is sitting in the corner window seat after the seat cushions have been removed. This allows us to have a tree without it intruding too much into the room.

This is our new tree ornament for 2018. Every year we get one new special one to mark the year. This one is made entirely of natural stuff from the woods. Birch bark, dried tansy and pearly everlasting, dried moss and lichen. Locally made. Very cute.
Somehow we have got ourselves quite booked up with events to attend over the next few days. But we must be home for Christmas Eve.

I was at my mom’s place yesterday setting up her new smart TV. Well...... my friend Shea was setting it up - I was so happy I didn’t have to lead that project... but we’re still not finished: We needed to buy an HDMI cord; I had to run to Comcast/Xfinity to get a new cable box; they included an HDMI cord with said cable box; now we have to return the other HDMI cord; we’ve got the “smart” bit working (she can access Netflix, etc) but we can’t get any of the actual TV channels. :barf::mad::barf: So Shea is figuring out that last bit today.
EDIT: Shea called Samsung and they remotely accessed the TV (so weird/disorienting to watch) and fixed it. :D :thumbs: I’m going to get a universal remote though to cut down on the confusion and make things easier.

So at 2:00pm I snapped a couple images from her apartment. She’s got loads of photo worthy scenes around her place - enough Time Stamp fodder for weeks and weeks.

That’s great you are able to be with your mom at Christmas. And maybe collect some interesting items for EOS. That’s an almost owlish cat from this angle. But, no snow for Christmas?

Me too!!! One of my all-time favorite creatures. I’d love to have a tree covered in insect and bird ornaments... and faeries.

I love dragonflies since I was a child. I used to live in a big house till I was 6 years old, with a huge pool in the front yard. Pretty much everyday there would be some drangonflies flying around the pool, and I loved it! I used to go down to the pool area just to watch them dance around :)
