Join the elite Time Stamp team for Saturday, 2pm, adventures!

Overview: Participants are invited to 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.

Rules: Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE

• 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 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.

Secret tip: This isn't strictly a photo contest. Good reportage or storytelling can get you lots of bonus points. Helping other people discover some place near you is another way to get bonus points. Make a connection.

• In addition to the regular (up to) 3 images, you are now allowed to post one additional image, if you want to, 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, to clearly identify it because it won't be counted as part of your submission of 3 photos.

• 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.

NEW! Time Shift Exemption: This applies to special events happening 2 or 3 hours 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. This is a test to see how it works.

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!

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

• There will be an overview, or Wrap-up, after each event to discuss any observations of things of special interest.

NEW: Each week the person making the next Wrap-up will be selected by the current Wrapper-Upper.

• AWARDS! There will be some new virtual awards spontaneously made up as the occasions arise. The award recipient 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.

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.

If you would like to join in the fun, just post a message below saying "I'm in!"

Braving wind and some rain, at 2pm I was outside de-nailing some pallets to make a cold frame to keep some of my plants dry and cosy over winter.

With a little help from my friend. I wasn’t strong enough to separate the planks.

Who knew there were soooooo many nails in one pallet?

Pulling the pallets apart is just the start. I will have to nail them together and then put a plastic lid on the frame.

No edits.

I’m exhausted and I haven’t finished yet.:lol:

2:00pm found me walking over to CVS to buy toilet paper. Yes, yes, I know I lead an exciting life. :p

Along the way I dropped off some used clothing...

And then found these beauties on my way back home, toilet paper in hand. :inlove:

Yesterday, today and tomorrow have been sunny and 78°F. :alien: Psycho summer weather in mid-October. Nice for sure, but no wonder all the leaves are just turning brown and dropping.

We did have a successful outing kayaking although we were all out of the water by 2:10. Tides wait for no man, etc.
IMG_7361.JPG

About 2:03 There were just 4 of us on this last scheduled outing for the year. Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park is now closed for the season but the water is still open.
IMG_7365.JPG

This is the most famous of the flower pot rocks, seen in many tourist brochures, but mostly at low tide.
IMG_7364.JPG

We went through every passageway a kayak would fit through. I left off the rear camera mast so I had more headroom to maneuver.

About an hour earlier I was in this most wonderful cave.

[emoji445]Let me take you down, cause I'm going to … [emoji445] kulinART, a kind of trade fair for food lovers.
I was a bit late from shopping before, but on time when I arrived at the campus of the University, where I only had to find the Casino, where the kulinart took place. But I did a wrong turn, got a little lost, so my actual 2'o shot from somewhere on the campus was this:

HipstamaticPhoto-530279955.959324.jpg


Two minutes later I arrived at the entrance that was right behind the sculpture, just on top of the stairs on the left.

HipstamaticPhoto-530285286.217868.jpg


When I entered the left room of the casino the show cooking was on, presented by Miele, who sells any kind of kitchen parts. I don't know if you divide it the same as us Germans, but we call it "white ware", means everything for the kitchen (from fridges to washing machines) because all those things were white in the 1950's, while "brown ware" was everything for entertainment (from radio to TV sets), and those names are still in use here, though the colour range changed much – especially brown wäre is now much more black and rearely brown.

HipstamaticPhoto-530288164.284501.jpg


So first I did a quick walk through to snap some pictures to show you what's on. So in the collage you see (from left to right): Grizzly has biological beef yerkeys, also turkey yerks, but presented only beef, so I couldn't taste – • – are you more for wine? There are a more than one trader – • – better don't come with your car, several other stands have also spirits and liquor to taste – • – mustard! From sweet for Bavarian white sausage to fiery for steaks and BBQ – • – interior decorations or furniture? Yes, stalls for this are also there – • – or fruit bread? Of course! Specials here with figs and dates.

IMG_1368.JPG


There are at least three stands with just pepper, Kampo pepper is offered on this picture (from a small region of Cambodia).

HipstamaticPhoto-530288602.879223.jpg


And for sweet teeth several stops with chocolate or pralines. The optical highlight here were gems to eat. I thought they put a cover of sugar on, but I've been told the shiny finish comes through a special finish of the cocoa butter. Don't they look pretty?

HipstamaticPhoto-530288704.833076.jpg


And when I left I took this picture with the entrance in my back. The big fountain with the pretty lady and in the rear the main building of the campus. (There are many buildings more. I suppose as a student you spent more time in running around through the huge park to find the place of your class than studying. [emoji4] And im not sure if it's really visible: at the nipple of the lady's breast is a black dot. This was the camera man from our local television filming some nice spots from the campus to cut into the story of the kulinart event. [emoji4]

Well, like deepop and JillyG I too was having a mundane day sorting out my old laptop for the DH. So I decided to take a walk along the Basingstoke Canal close to home. I absolutely love walking along here but don’t always feel safe on my own unless it’s busy times.

Anyhow I went left from the bridge along the prettiest but most remote part snapping pics as I ambled along not meaning to go far but then I turned around and saw a lone man leisurely walking a little distance behind and got a bit spooked so quickened my pace and ended up going the whole way to the next bridge which is about a 30 minute walk! I was hoping to get to the lock before Timestamp but it was much further than I thought so at 2pm I was about three quarters of the way and here are the pics.

First and last photo edited in Snapseed.

On the other side of the canal towpath, lots of houses have their gardens right up to the water, some with their own boats and moorings.

By the time I got to the bridge it had started to rain. Fortunately Tom was back from golf and came to pick me up saving me the wet 30 minute walk back along the main road :).

Wow, Gouvy, amazing report! You went all-out as usual. It must have been a big event to have all those things on display. Your pepper photo with the narrow area in focus really caught my eye. The room with so much red light reflecting on the red-faced young woman was another nice touch.

I can see why this is one of your favourite places to walk. It looks like a beautiful walk. The water level seems quite high. I suppose it must be regulated somehow as it leaves very little room for extra water in case of a heavy rain. I’m curious about the long boat, or is that a narrow boat? It appears to be dressed up as a historic railroad artifact. There is a barber-pole-striped pipe, or hose on the right. What is that? The colourful ferns are so much like our Hay-Scented ferns that change colour in the fall through yellows-to-oranges and finally cinnamon brown. Many ferns just go directly to brown while others are evergreen. For a supposedly dull day you had a wonderful outing.

If pallets where you live are similar to here then they are certainly a good source of hardwood boards. Recycling in action! It looks a perfect size for your cold frame. Those nails look to be the ring-nail gripping type that are extra hard to pull out. Very nice pics to tell your story.
