New York Colour Study

For the past year I took a photograph of the sky from my apartment in Manhattan. The idea of transposing a morning image everyday came after I started noticing that most mornings have a really unique colour to the sky. What would a record of that look like after weeks and months and how would the colour compare to each other? It's a fairly uncomplicated process with the photos. Typically I'm shooting between 6 am to 11 am depending on if there's any light out and the time when I wake up. Whether it's sunny or cloudy doesn't really matter because each day is unique. I always make sure that the crop of the sky is in a 4:3 aspect ratio with my Leica D-Lux 3. After taking the image I upload it to flickr and place it into the collective set. Because of the modularity of the images, I can create unique sets depending on what's required. For the above set I decided to order seven weeks starting in February of 2008. By keeping the grid to seven units a viewer can compare the colours of the weeks at one glance horizontally or all the particular days vertically.
