    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!"

    I had to look up Key Largo on Google Maps and the only one I found is in Florida. Is that the one?

    IN!!

    1.55: Arrived the shopping mall and cued to get into the park house. (Get ready alarm went).

    2 o'clock: I'm in (TS NOW Alarm was heard), but cruising under the mall to find a parking space. Since month everything is under construction, also the park house. So today lines were closed that were still open on Wednesday and I had to find my way anew. And it's very busy today.

    2.05: Finally a Mercedes left to let Leela and me in. Locked her up and am now on my direct mission.

    2.06: first shot in the park house.

    HipstamaticPhoto-524232410.235607.jpg

    2.13: Arrived inside the store of my fancy.

    HipstamaticPhoto-524232823.563539.jpg

    2.16: Arrived the shelves of my fancy and inspected the offered television sets.

    HipstamaticPhoto-524232972.726848.jpg

    Need a new one, my other one has its HDMI slots broken, but those are the only slots I need. So I need a replacement. Took a while until an employee had time to answer my questions. I even considered to get a monitor instead of tele. But that would have been twice or more the price. Not worthy for a bedroom tele.

    2.39 (round up picture): Left the store with my new Korean Tele that even has an on board DVD player.

    HipstamaticPhoto-524234925.481765.jpg

    Will later attach all cables an devices to see if it works. Only wifi is not included into those small television sets.

    I thought I'd wander down to the village church for 2pm today as I saw, when I was out this morning, that the church gate was decorated for a wedding. I thought that, if I was too late, there might be confetti to photograph, but I was too early. The ceremony was still going on, so I photographed what was around.

    The wedding car (did that need saying :D).

    You didn't even crash the wedding?
    A typical wedding car here is one of those big 4 wheel drive SUV/truck things turned into a stretch limo.
    I believe your churchyard wall weed is called Fireweed.

    A rainy day after all the hot sunny ones. We really need the rain. The grass is all brown.
    I had thought to go and wander around Alma but with the rain I decided to walk in the woods looking for lichens that had been invigorated by the rain.

    I thought I recognised the name Tommy. I used to dive with Amy Slates Dive resort in Key Largo, but I'd never visited the park. There is a wildlife refuge on the other side of the road where they have rescued ospreys that have been shot with ball bearings. Well, I say there is. I assume it's still there. Lovely images. Have you visited any of the restaurants around there?
