Happy Father’s Day, ROY G. BIV! (10 Images)

Roy is not my father. Or any father I know. He’s simply a representative, or an acronym, for the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. And Roy G. Biv is also this week’s DP photo challenge.

As my first response, I have compiled a gallery where each photo represents one color in the rainbow. All made by Mother Nature.

But I have a real rainbow for you too. A scene I captured from my terrace last year. Rainy day turning sunny, as often is the case here in Florida.

You can see other responses to this challenge here.

Finally, as Father’s Day is celebrated today in the US and many other countries, I wish all fathers in the readership HAPPY FATHERS DAY!

Monday Musings: On Love

This weeks musings include six of my favorite quotes on love, with images from nature I feel represent the message. With somewhat creative interpretation.

Perhaps something to ponder. Have a wonderful week. Tiny
