Same Sky, Different Places

New York City Colour Study now Same Sky, Different Places

After a couple months of taking pictures out my window of the the sky in New York and encouragement from friends about how to extend my New York City Colour Study I thought it might be interesting to open it up. I’ve started a flickr group called Same Sky, Different Places at where anyone can place a photo of the sky where they are. There aren’t many rules except that the image shouldn’t have any buildings or other objects in view, and that you should only place one image per day. In the description field it should mention the day, time, city and country. Aside from that you just need to be a member of flickr. At some point I want to take those images and turn it into a separate site, but for now I thought it would be good just to get some images into a group without a lot of effort from anyone involved. If you happen to have any suggestions on how to make this idea better, please let me know.
