ROYGBIV: RED!




The colors of the rainbow can be remembered by the acronym ROYGBIV . . . the rainbow colors of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.

The movers are here today, loading the truck, taking all of our stuff up to Whidbey Island. This means that I'm going to be computer-less until I get set up in a new office up north. Yikes! 

At least I've got a cellphone where I can stay in touch, but the creativity hub is in the desktop, and that's going to be out of commission for awhile.

Before we left, I set up some posts for the next few days, each one devoted to one of the colors of the rainbow. Hope they make you more aware of color and inspire you to perhaps search for one particular color today. 

In this case, it was easy for me to find the color red at the farmers' market, where tomatoes and radishes looked particularly tasty in diffused lighting. And the red buoys? One of my favorite subjects. Here, too, I shot in overcast lighting, which makes the red colors really gleam and pop.

So wish me luck! We travel up to Whidbey tomorrow, Chris in the pickup with the cat (oh, lucky him!) and me following closely behind.

For now, so long from the Oregon coast. Whidbey Island, here we come!

Carol,
all good wishes for your move. So glad you have your cellphone
to keep us all visually in touch. I still read your blog every day!

Now this is strange. I responded to your post, Edie, and Chris says he saw it this morning, but I'm not seeing it here on my phone. And of course I no longer remember what I said other than I'm so glad you're still in my life and it would be great to get together if ever you get up our way. And now watch. As soon as I click "publish," my previous response will appear!
