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!"

This week's Time Stamp timepiece:

OK, so this reference might be a little obscure. When we were kids and someone would ask you the time you would show your wrist with no watch and say "it's 3 freckles past the hair" to indicate you really had no idea what time it was. It also indicates vacation time.

This is what my watch has looked like the last several months:
From our campsite we can hear the not-quite-distant commotion of bird calls out at the Bon Ami Rocks. That tells us it isn't nighttime.

:lmao::lmao::lmao: Many miles away in inland California, we said the same thing as kids (pretty much the same years, too, I'd guess). I wonder if there was some cartoon or comic book that kicked it off or if was just a pre-internet case of spontaneous invention.

Well, we did too in when I was a kid in the UK so it must be universal!

Arrived home just as the alarm went off so it's a bit of a mish-mash but at least I had time to edit it in the required time for a change. So hot off the press:

Number 1: Looking down from our apartment onto the apartments below. Edited in Brushstroke.

Number 2: Looking out from the back through the kitchen window. Difficult to open the window wide so this is the best angle I could get without getting the frame in the pic. Upped Vibrance in IC

image.jpeg


Number 3: I am busy working on some collages in my study and have a tub of old acetate stencils I have made in the past so I photographed that and put it through Artomation. I did have to reduce the size after the fact as Mobitog wouldn't accept the file size.

I went for a wander around the block @ 2pm. Got a couple of gates for our JillyG (not that I could compete with terse on that score), a few terribly artistic shots of a lone bit of something growing up against a cracked wall (groundbreaking stuff, unfortunately the contrast didn't work as planned and I used up my editing time on another image - you'll have to take my word for it, your minds would have been blown :mobibabe:) .

Anyway this handsome old kitty yowled at me from up high on a wall across the street. I wasn't sure he'd stay put, but he was very friendly and let me climb up on a couple of rocks and stretch my fingertips almost to his feet so he could do that sniff & rub thing. And then he posed and purred and gave me both profiles like an old pro. So he was really the highlight of my 'TimeStamp walk'. iPad native cam bcs I left my iPhone 6s at home o_O
