Minutes earlier, minutes later : A moment in time - New York Times project

A moment in time is NYT's (New York Times)’s Lens Blog brilliant project.

The idea was creating huge mosaic of photos taken by Lens Blog readers at same time 2nd May 2010, UTC 15:00 on all over world. I checked and synchronized my local and UTC time for Paramaribo while using timeanddate.com. UTC 15:00 was equal 12:00 O’clock for Paramaribo.

I left from my house around 10:30 AM with my car and checked my favorite places quickly. Then I decided to capture my frames at one of fishermen shelter. Luckily they were just return from Atlantic Ocean and unloading their boat plus next fishermen were on the pier for sorting the fishes.

I didn’t setup any scene due my working principles and started to capture my photos earlier while triple checking current time with my watch, clock on mobile and my Nikon D2Xs’s system clock.

Naturally many scenes were over before UTC 15:00 (it was 12:00 o’clock in the local time for Paramaribo) as same also many more scenes missed time slice, minutes after by UTC 15:00.

I already e-mailed my selected photo (taken at 2nd of May 2010, 12:00:10) to New York Times and want to share with you minutes earlier and minutes later captures of World Wide fantastic moment. That’s way I prefer to include current capture date/time info on each frame.

Thanks to New York Times and Lens Blog for their brilliant idea for creating a huge collection of inspired photos taken by all readers at same moment.

Hope you like it. All the best,
