    Saturday, 2pm, TimeStamp is hereby declared an acronym-free zone.

    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.

    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!"

    Struck in a traffic jam on the M25 going north to a 60th birthday party in Beverley, Hull. Think this might have to be a time-shift....

    2pm found me at home in front of the tv. We are watching the Tour de France and the British Grand Prix qualifying (well, Rog is watching that :rolleyes:). We had been out to Peterborough this morning and returned home at 1.30pm.
    Hipsta.

    My helper(brother) has gone down for a nap leaving me free to make my Time Stamp pics. We have been rebuilding my deck. Some dodgy pieces of wood and a couple of "no step" areas.
    I built my deck in a modular way in 8 foot sections which makes repairing it easier than having to tear the whole thing down at once. The sections bolt together. We replaced one 8 foot section yesterday and have started on another today. This time no nails, all screws holding it together.
    The junk pile of old deck bits - destined to become kindling.
    IMG_7652.JPG
    Top surface (plywood) removed from the next 8 foot section. Haven't decided if we will remove the framework or just replace a couple of 2x6s in situ.
    IMG_7657.JPG
    The new plywood covers the replaced section where the broom is lying on the deck.

    A view from underneath.

    2PM found me at home... again... we spent the morning wandering through IKEA and to pick up one more wardrobe/closet for my walk-in closet room ;)

    On the way there the truck alerted us one tire was low, after looking at it, we found a drywall screw stuck in it... so we headed home. My DH dropped me off with the items we purchased and took the truck in. Lunch time! ;)

    Too much butter, I know, now.

    Max, who regularly naps for 2-2.5 hours at day care usually naps at home for 45 minutes. He's giving us a gift today, went to sleep at 1 and now at 230 is still asleep. Gave me chance to take some pics in his mother's study.Shows the lair of an art historian in her natural habitat.

    At our event still but I have a quiet moment. Our role was to put together a 2,000 voice choir who are backing up Hezekiah Walker and Yolanda Adams at Madison Square Garden.

    IMG_6400.JPG
    This is our choir during rehearsal.

    IMG_6392.JPG

    This one was shot at 3pm, but it's after the event started so it gives a feel for the stadium. I also made a video which I'll post later so you can hear the 2,000 Voices - they are mighty!

    IMG_6411.JPG
    Let me tell you I thought my head was going to explode getting everyone in their seats. ADULTS. DO. NOT. FOLLOW. INSTRUCTIONS. :mad:

    No edits.

    EDIT: Here's part of our rehearsal - that's my friend and owner of our company, Curtis, conducting.
