Happy New Year Everyone!!
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!"

I’m in! See you Saturday at 2pm.
There’s been a break in our cold snap! Warming up to -6°C overnight. It feels so balmy! But this is caused by a snowstorm pushing our way. It will get up to 0°C during the storm for Thursday & Friday. I’ll be back to the zen of snow shovelling.

Yes, I think you’re getting hammered by this storm too. It’s reached me... not a ton of snow so far but super windy.

And, I’m in!

It's been in the teens pretty consistently for a couple weeks now.... but sometime next week it's going to be 49 degrees F. CRAY CRAY.

This seems simple enough. Until I started thinking about it. Let’s see, umm. Get out the conversion app. -11°C = 12°F. -7°C = 19°F. After all these years with metric temperatures I have lost a sense of those colder temperatures, below about 40°F. I know that 32 = 0, or the freezing point. I know what 65 is like, or 70, or 98.6. I know 80 = too hot. The rest is fuzzy
So it seems your temperatures are below normal as well and a few degrees warmer than here. I think our coldest temperature was -27° = -16°F. Hmm. As kids we used to go out skating after supper at -20°F. Does everybody believe in global warming yet?

Yay, Christer. We never doubted that you were out there somewhere.:lol: That’s a fab photo - that pizza looks just like the photo on the box.

2pm caught me by surprise. We were delivering a Christmas present that my sister had given me to take to her (and our) friends who live in the little village where I was born. They’ve known me since I was a baby. Anyway, we were talking and I looked over at their clock and it was just coming up to 2pm. Agh! But I didn’t panic because I’d already identified a subject for my photos - a little 1938 Austin 7 “Ruby” that was parked in front of their garage. One on Gary’s to do list (he’s had the car for 40 years!).

I am told that the engine has side valves :confused:. The door “handle” made me laugh and where are those air bags??? A crank handle!:lmao:

Then Gary wanted me to see his 1967 Mini Leyland tractor.
