Here's a wonderfully colourful photo project by photographer Robert Weingarten that shows how psychedelic our world can get. Weingarten took a photo at 6.30 in the morning of the same view of Santa Monica Bay from his home in Malibu for an entire year. Even with all that sameness, each photo captures something completely different.
Called "6:30 AM Series" and shot in 2003, Weingarten used the same camera on the same tripod at the same spot with the same lens focused on infinity and at the same aperture of f/22. He tweaked with the camera's shutter speed but mostly just let each day differentiate itself from the one before and the one after. You see orange, red, white, blue, purple, pink and so on. The world, the clouds, the fog, the weather — it's just lovely to see each sky take on its own personality.
