Instagram Fun

I’ve been doing a fun series over on Instagram with combining some of my photos with a few of my favorite passages from the Patrick Rothfuss books.

Daily Photo – Soft Clouds over The Forbidden City

Blue skies are a rare thing in Beijing, so it was a super-surprise to see these kinds of delicate clouds over the corner tower here. I do love the way these clouds turned out… they look like the kinds of clouds that Bob Ross would paint! The clouds did not last long, and it takes forever to get anywhere else in Beijing. I wanted to get photos of the whole city before this perfect situation went away, but I knew that would be pretty much impossible… I just stayed here and chilled out… watching the clouds slowly fade across the sky.
