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 after each event to discuss any observations of things of special interest.

• AWARDS! There will be some new virtual awards spontaneously made up as the occasions arise. The award winner 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!"

Rog wanted to visit the Doc Marten shoe outlet this afternoon and we arrived just before the alarm went off.

We didn’t buy anything, but there were some other nice little craft shops and a tea room. I’m typing this whilst Rog drives, so I may have to edit later.:lol:

The talk started a couple of minutes after 2pm. I didn't get a good pic of the artist because I was waiting for her to move next to the slideshow and then they turned out the lights. She was happy for us to take pictures of her work which I took just before she gave her talk and just after 2pm.

It was fascinating listening to her approach as an artist. Her style and interest has always been industrial. This art was researched at a famous bell foundry in Whitechapel, London, which sadly has now closed. They did Big Ben's bell. She spent hours sketching the workers before doing these etchings and woodcuts. She emphasised the importance of doing a series and concentrating on one subject, something I have always struggled with.

Jane Stobart. No edits. I cropped the first two in close so they are not the full images.

She printed this one on cardboard. Have seen other artists do this and it's very effective.

At 2pm Rose and I we’re ready to partake of our annual ice cream feast. A doggie Sundae for Rose, a pumpkin for me. Not don’t go getting all “pumpkin spice craze” on me. DeeBee’s ice cream shop has been making their pumpkin ice cream every fall for the month before they close for at least 15 years. At least that’s how long I’ve been getting it.

I’ve not heard of the “pumpkin spice craze”. Ugh, pumpkin. :barf: I’ve had pumpkin pie and thought “This is all wrong” - it’s not something that should be sweet IMHO. :lol: Benson wanted you to know that he LOVES the idea of doggy icecream.:thumbs:

What a beautiful flower - is it an orchid? It looks like a carnivorous plant. Isn’t it a bit early for Halloween? No, maybe not. We’ve got Christmas stuff in the shops already.

She mentioned so many artists that influence her work, I realise that I don't spend enough time going to art galleries and getting inspiration and learning about other artists. I must take a trip into London sometime. I have been dying to go to the Royal Academy of Art since I discovered that one of my Great Aunts won awards there.

Good call... on both counts. :coffee:

Halloween is only five weeks away! ;) They only had a small area with decorations where the lawn furniture used to be.

At 2 we were just leaving the car park of the Cleveland Science Center, and I was driving. So all I could manage were some shots out the window, all unedited.

EEK!!! I’m so late! [emoji33] I made my photos at 2pm, but I was having lunch with my friend Shea and didn’t want to be rude and edit/post. We were in my favorite local diner (really a restaurant - not your typical New Jersey diner menu at all; lots of healthy dishes, even quinoa, which you’d NEVER find in a typical Jersey diner [emoji23]) - great retro atmosphere with lots of interesting design elements, except it was super crowded so either people’s heads would be in the shot or I’d be intrusively close to them. By the time lunch was over I’d forgotten I needed to post my pics... then I had a couple errands to run... came home... lala lala la maybe I’ll have some tea... and suddenly: TIME STAMP!!! [emoji33]

I quickly opened Snapseed and had another egads moment: It’s been completely redesigned again!! [emoji33] Luckily it’s user friendly and I was able to quickly edit these.
