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

The Time Stamp Café is the international meeting place open 24/7.

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/

I'm In! but probably outside with spring trying to push winter away.
I had my first bike ride of the season today. Nice sunny day but cold wind. I ended up needing my super thin tuque. Bike helmets are so well ventilated they don't keep out the wind at all. A nice ride but not very long.

It’s a long weekend here in the UK and the roads are a nightmare so decided to go out in the garden for my timestamp images. It’s a lovely day but the wind is blowing somewhat and taking pictures of the flowers and the wonderful bumble bees on the Rhododendrons was a challenge to say the least.

The best of quite a few attempts. I just had to click and hope. Taken with native camera and x2 zoom. Edited in Snapseed.

Looks like you did well with catching the bees. Things that won’t stay still always present focus issues.
Buaetiful yellow lilies!
Your Rhorodendrons - are th3ey the type that the flowers come out before the leaves or the type with evergreen foliage?

2pm My last Saturday at Callanish as we will be packing up the exhibition on Thursday. A fabulous sunny day here and too nice to be inside, i’m going to close up soon and skive off the rest of the afternoon... Tomorrow i hope to go on a mini 2 night adventure with my tent as the forecast is great for all week

3BFFF899-4DFB-4D02-84DD-ED22D26C49DC.jpeg

Our messy workroom at the gallery, Jane has been doing art workshops every Wednesday here and some of the students work is stuck up around the place.

D667E3FB-55CA-44F8-A7F0-8169EE4A09EF.jpeg

The little desk where i sit when customers come in. I chat with them and do my crochet (this will be a hat).

14B91437-C61B-46E9-B291-49E7C833EE18.jpeg

Finished hats - i need to build up a supply again as with all the previous bad weather i was down to none yesterday. They only take me a couple of hours to do. Then i label them up and pop a Puffin pin badge on (they are RSPB pin badges and i make a donation to them for each one i put on a hat).

32BE52BA-E7FC-4065-9D87-452AD5689254.jpeg

Jane found this old rusty panel on the beach and really liked the texture so it’s part of the exhibition and she made some magnetic cards to go on it. I’ve taken photos of it as i’m sure the texture will come in useful when combined with a photo one of these days....

Brilliant! So the bad weather is good for your sales. :D
Hope you sold many other stuff, too.
The texture of the board is wonderful!!!! Love it, too!

Help from the sickbed. I’ve got the flue again and am home since Thursday afternoon. Boss send me home right in time. Soon as I got into my bed shaking fever shook me and I was happy to have an appointment at the doctor anyway the next day. She send me to bed until Monday. So no going out today, what is a shame it’s such a sunny great day! So instead I went to the balcony for updates regarding my greens:

CEAF6421-6862-41F0-B695-F1CDE0E9FAFB.jpeg


The bird’s seeds are growing best. The ones in the pot in front are definitely sunflowers, though I’m surprised how wonky they are growing. But in the pod behind with the mixed seeds I saw some growing with having the “shell” of the seed still on the first leaf. And look on in the back has beautiful yellow pods. Whatever those weeds are, I love them all.


E75C0E2A-25A1-4BE9-9DE8-FBCCF17B0ECE.jpeg


The opposite corner: the frog pot holds blackberries (maybe next year?!) and balcony tomatoes in the front one

75152852-D5C4-407E-9356-96E753480CE7.jpeg


The strawberries don’t look good at all. They were already blooming when I replanted them, to give it fresh soil. Big mistake. I obviously cut off too many roots or the wrong ones. Next year I’ll just put some new soil underneath and leave it as is. IF they survive. They don’t look good and stopped blooming. Poor little things. :(

70B96B67-0A1D-4FDC-B125-8E0258E72722.jpeg


The peppermint looks great, but it seems is has visitors regarding the holes in the leaves. Will have a closer look, but nature is welcome on my balcony. Maybe it’s lice and ladybugs are coming. (Hey! Saw three yesterday when I came from the doctor. First proper view this year, all orange. But I felt lucky.)
And now I need to get back to bed. I’ll have to be fit on Monday and still feel the fever. :(
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

Ps: forgot to mention: all 6pod native and quickly ran through Hipstamatic random. Strawberries extra edit in BeSafe with blurring the dirty bottom …

It rained heavily overnight and it still feels like more will come any moment. So I put on my rain suit and rubber boots so I could kneel down without getting wet.

Red Trillium. I planted these wildflowers many years ago and they continue to survive in spite of being largely ignored. The only thing I do is make sure they aren’t crowded out by brambles. They got a bit past their prime before I noticed them. It’s one of those annoying flowers that points downwards so to look straight on includes part of the sky. Otherwise a perfectly lovely spring ephemeral.

A few feet further on is this group of yellow birch trees that have grown together. You can tell by the moss that it’s pretty moist and shady at this spot.
2B8B2023-A613-4EAF-8578-582B75F55A25.jpeg

A few more feet along is this old dead small tree just at the edge of my drainage ditch. Now all covered with tiny fungi all up and down the trunk.

Here’s an overview shot of the Trillium, showing the distinctive leaves, all in threes. In the woods it’s usually easier to spot the leaves than the flowers.

We’re having a bit of *weather* so I’m home at 2:00pm... lots of people are probably enjoying it but I’m not. :mobibabe: It was 80°F and super humid by 10:00am. :barf: I got stuff done early - went out at 7:00am for a 6 mile walk, then went to the farmer’s market and got a few things. It’s slim pickins’ at the market, I would have thought more veggies would be available by now. :confused: I just got some salad greens, radishes, and........

I love artist’s studios... the best kind of mess. And I love your hats! :inlove: That rusty panel is fab... I could also see hanging it on a wall as a “painting”.

Awwww...what a bummer you’re sick again! :( If you’re feeling up to it make a hot tea with fresh lemon, ginger, garlic (lots!!) and honey. :inlove:

Your wee garden looks lush and lovely... except, agreed, for the strawberries. :openmouth: Yes, repotting/transplanting is best done before/after they’ve bloomed and produced fruit, but I bet they’ll perk back up in their bigger pots and if not this year, come back in full health next year. Try giving them some nice fertilizer now.

So many lovely bits of nature right outside your door... I just love the trillium. :inlove:
