Lens is a New York Times photography blog that features images from all over the world. Last month, they asked readers to participate in a project called “A Moment in Time.” Users were to take their photographs on the same date, at the same time and upload their submissions – at 1500 UTC, Sunday, May 2, 2010. Sure, this sort of project has been done before — but the New York Times took those submissions and compiled them into an interactive site. You can spin the globe and select a location, even filter the results by broad categories. The results at the top of the photo stack are those that have been voted up by others.
I spun the globe, stopping over southern Europe, and this is the random image that came up:
Mircea Mitran, a 77-year old, plays with two of the kids in his herd, in a field in the village of Limanu, Romania, located east of Bucharest.
Meanwhile, in the field near a village in Illinois, located south of Chicago, the Studmuffin is playing with his kids.
We have got to get these two together!
