LONGREAD why I like to instagram they sky via The Atlantic (one of the best sites ever) 

This dude has 3 rules when it comes to instagramming the sky #skyporn #skylovers

  1. The photo should just be of the plain sky and nothing else; no trees, no buildings, no clouds, no airplanes
  2. The photo should not use any filters or have its color adjusted in any way
  3. The photo should always be posted with the season (ie, Winter Gradient), the date, and the location where the photo was taken

PS: I do realize the irony of posting a longread in something called Bytesized, hence the tips.
