Mini Challenge #549: TIMELY

The theme for this mini challenge is TIMELY:

Entries of photo(s) must be taken within the next 2 weeks, and the theme is 'TIMELY'. Head out and make something specific for this mini challenge related to the NOW, the present, something you see that is TIMELY. It's about time, and seeing, and the world around you.

You don't need to plan a trip to Yosemite or the Matterhorn. No need to get up at 3:30am and hike to a remote beach in the cold to catch the first light of sun hitting the rocks (unless you want to!). No need for anything epic, unless you happen to have your camera when something epic happens. But what life is TIMELY and mundane and perfectly normal but is incredibly interesting? What do you see? Make it TIMELY, about the now, in your life, your town, your house, your greater neighbourhood - wherever and however you interpret TIMELY. I'm very curious to see how other people see the world around them.

The challenge will end on Friday, March 5th, 2021 at 20:00 CET.

THE RULES

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

You may enter up to three competition images, three entries.

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post only and please remember to change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles.

Please state whether your submission is an ENTRY or EXHIBIT.

If you do not wish to enter the MC and host the next challenge should you win, please state your submission as "Just for Fun" (or "Exhibition") in the subject line (or in the message text).

The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible.

The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.

If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge.

If the first place person cannot host or does not respond within three days, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera or even smart phone.

Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Feel free to comment on other contestants' images.

And the most important rule: HAVE FUN!

Example 1 - I went out for the last challenge 'COLD' and made this image specifically inspired by the challenge (and I carried the G1X Mk3 to do it, but any camera will do for TIMELY).

Example 2 - I carry the camera around when I meet my daughter after her class. This was a scene in the snow that was interesting:

Example 3 - perfectly normal scene at the Bahnhof, but the light caught my eye:

It has been a week now that we had temperatures of -10°C at night. Today it reached +15°C.

Crocus are ready to go and this busy bee is there just in time to start collecting

LOL, don't be too envious, they aren't that great when it's bitter cold! I don't know what photography gloves would be good for bitter cold if it means exposing your finger/thumb but they are nice when it's regular cold.
