"NEW" On the edge of a New Year.
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!

• There will be a brief 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 Grand Wrapper-Upper.

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!"

Seeing that we're right on the brink of a NEW Year, I propose the theme "New" for Time Stamp 112. This is just a way to have some fun with an additional challenge but not compulsory.
Think "New" in its many facets. Something New, maybe a New object, the New Lamborghini that Santa brought you for Christmas, a New relationship, a New connection made in your mind. A New idea, a New way of seeing something, a New outlook, a New Year's resolution (or restitution). A New discovery, seeing something old but for the first time in a New way, a New collection of synapses firing in your brain. The New You, turning over a New leaf, starting a New plan, New New New.

But I'm not sure about the "new". Did anyone ever posted old images here?[emoji15] [emoji1] Maybe the location is the same, but never the pictures. [emoji848] (*thinking emoji that doesn't show up*)
Well, will think about it and maybe forget about it when the alarm goes off. I refuse to promise anything! Ha! And that's WAS new! [emoji23]

Edit: NEW! -> [emoji848] <- does show up! [emoji106]

We have been in a cold snap the last few days. -27°C (-18°F) with wind chill during the day. -21.8°C at night with no wind chill. We have a few inches of snow to help protect the ground. Not really enough for snowshoeing.

Wow, that's seriously cold and I was complaining about it being 2.5C this morning!

You can get well dressed up for the cold but opening your jacket to take out your phone from an inside pocket and then getting your fingers out of your mitts makes picture making short and fast. Mostly one begins to think of many fascinating things to do indoors. It takes extra effort to go outside. It seems to get harder to adjust to the cold the older you get.

Think I would turn to an icicle at where you live. -27°! The worst I can remember was -23°, back in 1983, and we where in the Rhön (hills, no real mountains). I'm freezing already, just reading it …

I keep my phone in an outside pocket, and I have glove/mittens - flip up the mitten part (connects to top of glove via Velcro) and glove inside, with fingers exposed for easy tapping.

I’ve got some of those photographer’s mitts, too, and they’re not warm enough for -27. Also, your phone will freeze in an outside pocket in less than an hour.

At 2pm I was watching videos on bulletjournal.com about the Bullet Journal, Ryder Carrol’s new (ish) take on daily planners. He calls it ‘the analogue system for the digital age’ . . . .

:mobibabe: Okay, if you say so.

My history with planners and journals is abysmal: my commitment & focus has lasted about a week if that. I have empty calendar journals everywhere. So I’d seen the Kickstarter campaign (worked well for him) and figured I’d try something new.

What had originally looked like the perfect planning method for people with ADD tendencies started to look like an ADD nightmare. The neat, tidy stuff is Ryder Carrol demonstrating the method. The flowery, elaborated stuff is bits I’ve found elsewhere on bullet journaling — which bears little resemblance to Carrol’s neat, non nonsense, black & white ‘at a glance’ planner. Bullet journaling on most of the other websites and videos I found seems like scrapbooking/art journaling with a few pie chart goals thrown in. Multiple lists - books to read, hydration goals, friends’ birthdays, marketing goals, you name it. Lots and lots of decoration - washi tape, cupcake stickers, inspiring quotes... :D

I understood most of Carroll’s perfectly simple instructions, though I’m not sure what I would put on ONE HALF A LINE per day for each month :eek: . But the other stuff did my head in. One lady spent five mins of her video showing off her beautiful pen, and another five sharing her rapture at the Exact Perfect Shade of Emerald Green that was her journal cover.
I struggled on for a bit. But when it became clear to me that I had no idea where to put ongoing day entries (ie before or after inspiring quotes; with or without washi tape, etc), I gave in gracefully. Broke out my trusty gel pens and started decorating. When in doubt, doodle :thumbs:
