Colour is my best friend and rainbows are the most beautiful expression of colour – so it’s no surprise that ROY G. BIV is a welcome visitor to my world!
You may be asking yourself, as my husband asked me, who the heck is ROY G. BIV? I smirkingly replied (as if I’d known the answer all along) that ROY G. BIV is an acronym for the colours of the rainbow – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. I must admit that I didn’t know that until I read the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge prompt. (Click the link for the many other posts on this colourful topic).
You can attack this challenge in one of two ways: share an image that contains all the colours of the rainbow (or an actual rainbow)…… or share a multi-photo gallery, one image for each colour:
I have chosen to share my all colours of the rainbow bikini for a few reasons! 1. It’s the middle of winter here and there’s no way I can wear a bikini at the moment and 2. It’s a different take on the theme and I always try to respond to with a certain ‘Debbie’ take on the world.
There is a story to my gratuitous shot of my bikini!! I know it’s not the best photo (technically) but I think it gets the message across.
Here’s an excerpt from my post I bought a bikini, yes I bought a bikini , a few years ago, when I was in the process of transforming my body – just so that you understand the context of my sharing my rainbow coloured bikini! It was a huge deal for me then and even now, sharing it again!
I am on the Gold Coast for Christmas with some of my family and I decided today that I’d buy a bikini. I haven’t worn a bikini in years & don’t think I really should be wearing one just yet – but too bad!! I am at that age that I don’t really care too much about what others think. (Maybe that’s a little untrue). I had the great idea of buying a bikini while I was out running on the beach, so before my courage left me I went & got one! The sales lady was mature aged and very helpful, and I’d like to think honest in her appraisal of my choices. I feel very summery and not at all out of place up here. Downtown Tumbarumba maybe a different matter!!
I think have ROY G. BIV covered (so to speak)!
I’ll also share a rainbow shot, but as everyone’s got a good rainbow shot, I’m choosing to highlight my bikini photo this week.
It’s also interesting to note that for all my love of colour, my husband is colour blind.
Have a lovely weekend and I do hope it’s full of colour for you!
PS. I don’t know about you but when I see the prompt for the photo challenges I usually have an immediate ‘thought’ of what photo I can use, or how I can get a photo to suit the theme. I then go with that first thought, thinking through the way to draft my post and how to weave in my own quirky take on the world. I don’t spend too long thinking about it all, I just do it. I’m interested in how others approach these challenges – is it an initial ‘ping’ of an idea for you or do you think long and hard about it? Because I usually have more time to blog on the weekend and we don’t get the challenge until Saturday morning here in OZ, I always try to get it posted before the weekend gets away from me. Leave me a comment if you’d like to, I really am keen to know how others do it.
