My friend Jennie told me on Sunday night about the A Moment in Time project from NYT.
You were supposed to take a photo at 1500h GMT, Sunday, 2nd May 2010 (11pm our time) and submit it to the pool to capture a moment in time. By collecting the photos, they hope to show a mosaic of the world at this moment.
It was so popular a project their server crashed.
So at 2250h, I grabbed my camera, jumped on my bicycle and biked as far as I could go before the 2300h timing, and snapped some shots. The one above was what I submitted in the end.
You can see some of the early selections at the NYT Lens Blog.
Here were some of the other shots I took.
