Join the elite Time Stamp team for Saturday, 2pm, adventures!
Come on down to the Time Stamp Café! Its the international meeting place.


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!"


Past Time Stamp favourites, selected by the Grand Wrapper-Upper that week, are on display at the Time Stamp Café Gallery. You can also see a virtual representation of the photos in the MobiTog gallery section. https://www.mobitog.com/gallery/albums/time-stamp-café-gallery.447/

Hey! I found it!

While I was upstairs looking for a drawing book I thought I had I found “Ruby”!
It was delightful to read the story again and study the very detailed fantasy drawings. My copy still has the cover sticker promoting the contest to win the car.

I love the cover. Are all the illustrations like that?

There are a couple more under the tree roots illustrations.
Here are 2 more pages.
This first one is half of a spread of what they found in the glove box.

Note the Swiss Pacifist Knife and Dried Water.
This next photo they are still trapped in the garage and decided to sleep on the engine.
IMG_7533.JPG

Again, just half of a two page spread.
There are always unexpected little details that don’t belong, with the little satellite dish on the carburetor, or a tiny window on the side of the battery box showing a café inside with a dog sitting on the table to look out the window. The pages are 80% illustration with some text boxes to narrate the story. Just 32 pages, leaving you wishing for more.

What fabulous illustration!

I'm in for Saturday - alarm will be set and ringer will be set to loud! It is very likely that my photos will just be taken from the car window though as i'm heading down to Andalusia that day :)

We did that journey and the scenery is spectacular, so I’m looking forward to your car window shots.:D

Here at the Time Stamp Café, over near the window seat, there’s a small zen sand garden table with an assortment of objects to compose as you like. I brought the sand from Betsy Beach and when I find an interesting beach rock I bring it along to add to the collection. Right now I’m collecting some dark rocks with a single white stripe for a balancing pile.
You might decide to place one stone, just so, and leave it like that to see where the next person will add a stone. A composition game with an unknown number of composers.

Am I first to enter the Time Stamp café? Before I get myself a drink I’ll post my photos. We’ve been to Northampton this morning to visit our friend Priska, the chef. Of course we weren’t anywhere scenic at 2pm.:rolleyes: We were just stopping for fuel when the 1.55pm alarm went off.

This is what surrounded the fuel station.

And this is what the weather has been like all morning! :( But still, it could have been worse.:D Now, where’s that menu [pulls the comfy chair nearer to the fire, gets the foot stool and settles down for some me time - heaven].:appwhore:
