The name's Biv... Roy G. Biv
Beautiful colors exist, though we do not realize it, and are glimpsed behind the veil that modesty has drawn over them. - Paul Gauguin
As I finished winnowing the images from a recent trip to Oregon (shown in the slideshow above), I found that our friend ROYGBIV had paid a visit. (ROYGBIV being the acronym for the rainbow hues red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.) My favorite photographs from the trip ended up including the full gamut of colors. It wasn’t due to any conscious effort on my part (red? Check! Blue? check!...). I think much of the credit goes to those wonderful overcast skies. There’s nothing quite like the true, rich quality of color under a gray sky - no glare, no contrast, just the pure color. For anyone who gets depressed by Southern California’s May gray / June gloom season, the best therapy is to grab a camera and look for something colorful to shoot.
So, Mr. Biv (or can I call you Roy?), this slideshow is for you.
