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!"

[emoji33][emoji33][emoji33] two minutes too late! Or is this a time shift?

I photographed this antique timepiece under a glass countertop so I wasn’t able to change the time for Time Stamp. It wasn’t running. This one was quite large for a pocket watch and attached to a leather fob. I thought it a handsome timepiece.
I could also title it, “You’re late! You’re late! For a very important date. “ (from the March Hare in Alice in Wonderland).

How’d you do that?? Did you go back and ask them to move the hands?

It would have been hard to go back to a flea market from two years ago. Instead, I went back to the original 3 layer Leonardo document I used for the inverted title and added another layer to move the hand and cloned out the hand in the layer below. Cloning in a gradient is actually harder than moving the hand. I darkened the hand a bit since it was now in a darker area and added a drop shadow to match the hour hand.

I knew it, but didn't count on the perfectionist. I'd just moved the hand without caring for the shades – only if it was toooo obvious. [emoji106][emoji1]

2pm found Nicola and I outside The Hub (cafe) in Oundle hoping for a late snack after coming from the cinema (Paddington 2). However, when we got there, the cupboard was bear oops sorry bare (darn that Paddington LOL)! I even pressed my nose up against the window to make sure I wasn’t mistaken.

I quickly snapped the magnificent building from the car park and then drove down into the town to get something in one of the many cafes and restaurants.

It’s actually now a house, but I presume it used to be something ecclesiastical.

Here’s where we chose - The Talbot Hotel.

There’s been some sort of inn on the site since the 1500s, but the earliest mention of The Talbot was in 1617. It had been closed for quite some time before it was purchased by a small hotel chain and refurbished last year.

Rainy and horrible but when I was coming back from grocery shopping I noticed how wonderful the canal was looking and decided to come back and take some pics for Timestamp.

You don’t often see kayaking on the canal so this was a bonus. Snapseed.

When you mentioned pressing your nose against the window it really seemed like something Paddington bear would do.

There’s a great autumnal feel to these Ann. You’ve flipped the first one haven’t you? It messes with the mind a bit (in a good way).:D

I was in work clothes outside sawing up lumber for the carport roof. Went in for lunch and wondered where I could go in time [emoji355]️ for Time Stamp. Options weighed, and I stayed home so I could get some more work done.
