Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G. BIV

The theme for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is ROY G. BIV.

When I first saw the challenge, I had no idea what it meant, and then they very kindly explained that it is an acronym that represents the colors of a rainbow in order: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. I also had no idea what I might photograph that would contain all the colors in one view, unless we had a rainbow. However, an opportunity presented itself when my wife and I were making a t-shirt for my six year old granddaughter who is coming next week to what we traditionally call “Camp Grammy.”


The colors are in reverse order, but they are there; I think it qualifies.

  1. I’d never heard the acronym either. Must be something taught to art students is what I suspect. Your tshirt is perfect!

    In the UK we use the phrase “Richard of York gave battle in vein” to help us remember.

    Thank you, Christina. I’ve used these kinds of memory devices since I was a youngster in school.
