A Moment in Time

The New York Times Photography Department decided to do something pretty awesome recently, which they are calling “A Moment in Time.” The idea was that photographers around the world would take a picture at the same moment – 1500 UTC on Sunday, May 2, 2010, to be exact – to create a collage of life around the world. You can read more about it and see some of the first picks here.

My offering (above) is from inside a pub near Stamford Bridge in London, where I was watching Chelsea take down Liverpool. Let me tell you… it was tough taking out my camera in the middle of that. It seems that in the priority ranking of my life, football comes before photography. Who’d have thought?
