Saturday, 2pm, Time Stamp, no theme.

Overview:
Participants will make pictures for the Time Stamp project. There is no theme this round. Photograph whatever is happening, or make something happen. However, the catch is that your picture(s) must be made at 2:00pm, your local time, on Saturday afternoon. Post your pictures (up to 3) on this thread. Sit back and await fame and recognition, and maybe a spiffy new virtual award.

If you're new to the Time Stamp idea here's the 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 shot, the creation date and time.

Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE

Rules:
- Standard Mobitog image rules apply. Images must be captured/created & edited entirely on a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet.
- All images must be shot between 2:00pm to 2:10pm, 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 10 minute window of opportunity. Better to concentrate on capturing a unique moment at 2pm. Be careful not to remove the creation time & date from your image metadata.
- 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 2:10pm window of opportunity.
- You may enter up to 3 images. To reward your enthusiasm you can have an extra 5 minutes for each additional image (up to 2), after 2pm for your extra 2 shots. This means, if you choose to enter 3 pictures, your total window of opportunity will be 20 minutes in total. If you are submitting one image your window of opportunity remains the original 10 minutes. Remember, that includes editing time.
- Post your images to this thread. Images posted using the Mobitog app at 1024px are perfectly OK. No need to send high resolution images via Safari.
- Closing date: entries must be posted no later than 2pm the following day (Sunday). There's no point in delaying since any editing must be completed within the official window of opportunity. 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!

Any questions? Let's try to get them sorted out before the big day.

Now Weekly!:
• Time Stamp has become a regular weekly event! We will stick to the current Saturday at 2 pm time slot for a while until we decide to try some other time. This week will have no theme but other weeks might (so pay attention!).
• There will be an overview after each event to discuss any observations of things of special interest.
• AWARDS! There will be some new virtual awards spontaneously made up as the occasions arise. The award winner will gain the privilege of wearing (flaunting), for one week, the virtual hat/cape/glasses/etc. associated with that award. Topics might be photojournalism, humour, documentary, brilliant observation, street photography, decisive moment, that was unexpected!, quick thinking under duress, inspired making of instant art, doing the best you can in a boring situation, etc. I will present the awards but participants may nominate other participants for awards of merit and even invent new awards as they see fit.
- Imagine being able to wear the Glowing Crown of Omnipotence for a whole week, where your every opinion expressed must accepted and acknowledged as undeniable truth.

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!"

Screenshot of what I was doing at 2pm - very boring, sorry, but that's what I was doing at 2pm. And 3pm. And 4pm. And 5pm. You get the picture (ha ha). I thought it might look a bit more aesthetically pleasing if I put it thru Percolator. No? What about a nice distribution curve layered on top? No? How about two cards a friend sent me recently about psych grad school? Some people are so hard to please :mobibabe: I would've drawn a giraffe as well but I ran out of time.

Get well soon and take a shot of your tea and you're in. [emoji4]
Starbucks wifi is very jumping today. Not sure if I can post pictures though I try.

2oclock at the shopping mall outside the roofed part to take a breath of fresh air. But it's humid and dull. Realised that the chimney doesn't fume today. It's our waste incineration plant. Just read in the news they have 14 days for repairs at 2.000.000€. That's why the dragon has no smoke. [emoji4]
Took one with FusionHDR and the other closer with Hydra. The FusionHDR on at exactly 14:00. [emoji1]
On the way over to Starbucks I crossed the mall to find its play mobile day and the they put up several games for the kids. To raise money for them.
In the collage you see building bricks, a worm pipe (entrance where the people are) a slide with moving "sticks" that the little ones in the box can roll down (taken with TaruCam, to show the move, all others FusionHDR) and a climbing "hill".
And now I wish I'd get the connection back to post. [emoji30] lost it again and again. Hopefully it's better inside.
Seems to work …

Something I always wanted to do: 2 o'clock in England. (Now After Brexit [emoji30][emoji30][emoji30][emoji30])
Okay, it was three minutes late, but Mobitog kept me so long at Starbucks that I could do this without hassle. [emoji1]

I love to watch the tourists pretending to be the Beatles and hold up the traffic. My always at hand peephole when I'm "homesick" for London.
Wish I could live there, but know it's no question anymore if they make the Brexit really happen. [emoji24]

In Search of Coffee

This morning I attempted to take Rog his usual coffee in bed, using the coffee machine we'd brought with us to the cottage we'd rented for our two week holiday. But the blasted thing would not suck up water no matter what I did. I tried and tried, but all it did was make a horrible grating noise. :eek: I walked down to the local deli and got him one from their machine, but didn't walk back fast enough apparently, because it was tepid.o_O So we went out shopping (knowing that Rog needs a good cup of coffee to start his day) and I searched high and low for an alternative - perhaps one of those little Italian stove-top jobbies to make a lovely cup of Java. But they were really expensive. Then we needed coffee beans and they needed to be ground. Agh! :mad: So Rog bought a cheap coffee filter set and we went to another place to buy the beans and got them ground. We came home and made some coffee in the new filter and it was fine.:) And just to make trebly sure that the other machine was kaput, I tried it, and what do you think? The blinking thing only blooming worked didn't it! So here it is at 2pm, looking all smug (if coffee machines can look smug), immortalised in a photo. :coffee::coffee::coffee:

Is this from a webcam Gouvy? I didn't know they had one focussed on the crossing.
