    Saturday, 2pm, TimeStamp, no theme.

    Overview:
    Participants are invited to make pictures for the TimeStamp 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 TimeStamp 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 TimeStamp. 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 TimeStamp 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.

    • 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.

    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.

    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 was shovelling today after the latest snowstorm. Still a big drift on the deck to clear.

    Hello :inlove: just snuck in for a bit to see if you can guess what I was doing at 2pm today? Bit of SnapSeed and Repix artistic license to add some mystery :D Thumbnail answers below.


    IMG_1391.JPG IMG_1392.JPG FullSizeRender.jpg

    If I'd had the presence of mind, I would have had more exciting images ten mins earlier, when the big garden hose wheel thing fell over and broke [something] on the water pipe sending a narrow but very intense arc of water hissing across the chook pen. Instead of thinking to capture the beauty of the moment, I rushed to turn off the mains. I'm still traumatised by that fast clickclickclick sound of a racing water meter. Broken water pipes aka 'wasting water' is like . . . like breaking eggs was for my post-Depression mother's family. And of course I haven't a clue about soldering things (man's work, innit) and this weekend my DH is away on a seminar for two 14 hour days. Luckily we have a rainwater tank. :confused:

    :eek: Drama. I would never have guessed the back story from that lovely artistic first image. I thought you might be renacting a scene from Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table or The Hobbit - something to do with swords anyway.:confused: I hope you get it fixed sometime soon.

    I was not doing anything half as exciting as Jen, but I was wearing my crown whilst I was doing it. :mobibabe: I cannot believe that there is another person in the whole wide world, nay, Universe, that was wearing a Hipsta Crown while painting some bedroom doors. At the end of last year we had new doors fitted to all the rooms and cupboards upstairs, but they needed painting. :confused: Not my forte, or metier come to that, but they needed doing so ...

    HipstamaticPhoto-508514430.720590.jpg
    This was with the new Venice pak and the Triple Crown lens.

    HipstamaticPhoto-508514509.944945.jpg
    I thought this one was particularly apt. :lol: James M lens and Kowloon 1839 film.

    HipstamaticPhoto-508514489.551452.jpg
    Every time I speak to Nicola she asks me if her name is on her new door yet. Tonight, when I call her, I can confirm that it is.:D

    HipstamaticPhoto-508514456.413279.jpg
    And just as an aside, this is ... well, you know who it is. He's in Nicola's room and every day Rog squeezes his ear and he says "Aghhhh, I'm having a snack attack" and "Did you eat my pizza?". This is Scooby saying it, not Rog.:D

    Funny thing, looking at the first image and trying to "guess", it looked like an artfully made walking stick (staff or wand first came to mind - but I AM currently reading Game of Thrones... ) then I had to "readjust" my eyes to see the water pipes.

    I would have rushed to turn it off too...

    Oh, I hate painting (rooms). And LOL that even your masking tape is GREEN. What a perfect combo for that second image!

    Nicola's room looks like it's amazing...love her name on the door! Scooby Doo sounds like he could be a bit.....annoying.
