Yesterday morning, as I was perusing the New York Times online (a free service for which I am endlessly grateful,) I saw an announcement for A Moment in Time accompanied by one of those wonderful shots of a blue and cloud-covered Earth from space. It said:
Attention: everyone with a camera, amateur or pro. Please join us on Sunday, May 2, at 15:00 (U.T.C./G.M.T.), as thousands of photographers simultaneously record “A Moment in Time.” The idea is to create an international mosaic, an astonishingly varied gallery of images that are cemented together by the common element of time.
Between 10:58 and 11:02 I took about a dozen pictures -- there was also a dandelion seed head, a poplar tree, an iris, and our little falling down cabin across the way. These last three I've posted here were my favorites (the background on the sundial was too blah to suit me.)
How could I resist? I just had to wait till eleven -- not my favorite time of day for taking pictures, especially on a day as sunny as yesterday was.
I scoped out a few possibilities around the house -- sundial, clothes on line (Move underwear out of shot,) door in bedroom, garden gate. And at a few minutes before eleven I dashed out to the sundial to begin.
Which would you have chosen? I vacillated between the three but finally picked my favorite and posted it to the NYT.
I'll be looking forward to seeing the whole project when it's done!
