As followers of my personal blog and my facebook friends already know, I’ve picked up a hobby in the last few months: taking pictures of the sky. Above are a few examples, but I’ve collected many, many more on

I take all the pictures (for now) using Instagram on my cellphone. My camera’s quality isn’t great, but the distortion adds a grain I find really appealing. I usually use filters, but not always. Mostly I’m just lucky, and I find that there are good weeks and bad weeks as far as how beautiful the sky looks. This has been a good week.

I’m really enjoying this project, and if you like the look of it, you should follow either of my other blogs, where they all get posted, or follow @jimthiscity on Instagram.
