Twenty-six skies

Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - 26.08.2005 - 5.10 pm

Some of you may know that I have had a silly website for the last year or so which has collected sky pictures from people around the world. They are not just any old sky pictures, there is a strict rule: "Photographs of the sky. Nothing else. Camera angle: 90 degrees to the earth. Straight up. No cheating."

There has been a steady trickle of pictures. The site itself is a bit bonkers and I'm not sure the sane would find it very interesting. However, this is a bit more accessible: a slide show of skies from all over the world. I found it quite beautiful.

There is also a map of where all the images came from. I got another picture sent in today from Cambridge, Massachusetts. Hopefully, I will gradually build up a better slide show. Come to think of it, I might buy one of those old projectors and start "entertaining" my friends with nights in with my slides and bottle or two of Blue Nun. That would be fun, wouldn't it?

Oh! I could so do this. Every month I could mail a picture from different parts of Thailand!
