Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty. There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail. Robert Motherwell

I love color and I enjoy taking pictures with lots of colorful items… So why was this task a challenge? Good question. I’d say I had a surfeit of colorful items to choose and soon, they became a huge kaleidoscope of vivid colors dancing in my head. The Adirondack chairs are from a furniture maker in the Rhinebeck region. The collage includes shots of richly colored plastic soup bowls and cups in a store, a colorful set of toy dragons, a beautiful double rainbow I caught outside my local CVS, Rainbow in a hand-blown glass, a colorful Hudson Valley skyline, the lit up Frank Gehry building in Manhattan, a glass making shop in Seattle, Washington and Word Art (Tomorrow). If we look around us, we will see color everywhere. It is above and below and beautiful. Wishing All a Very Happy And Rainbow Filled Father’s Day Weekend!

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.” Gilbert K. Chesterton

I remember opening my dad’s closet and there were, like, 40 suits, every color of the rainbow, plaid and winter and summer. He had two jewelry boxes full of watches and lighters and cuff links. And just… he was that guy. He was probably unfulfilled in his life in many ways. Jon Hamm


Above is an interior shot of that beautiful glass. I bought a set of 4 on sale, at Bloomingdale’s, many years ago. They are hand blown and signed. Each one is quite different. Frankly, they are so pretty that I often forget they are drinking glasses; heavy and beautiful too. The collage is a blend of some of the items mentioned above including a colorful barge on the Hudson River. When we take time to look around and pay attention to the world we inhabit, we see that there is so much color in nature that I can never get enough of it. In case you were wondering, Yes, for once, I left out my lovely colorful flowers. I wanted to give them a break. Have A Happy And Colorful Father’s Day Weekend!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rainbow Colors in Word Art in ROYVBIV

When you look at the world, the world isn’t just one palette. It’s a beautiful rainbow, and why not have someone to represent that rainbow? Joan Smalls

Hello world again yes.

I thought it would be cool to add that Word Art frame in here as it does have all the colors we need. If you look closely, you’d see m=numbers. yes, it is interactive and is a piece in progress… When the mood calls, we add some color to the mix. Hope you Father’s Day is Happy and Colorful!

My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out how others interpreted the theme below.

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge: Roy G. Biv  For this week’s photo challenge, share with us a photo that expresses Roy G. Biv; whether you opt for a single photo or seven, we want to see all the colors of the rainbow. Roy G. Biv” is an acronym made of the first letters of the seven colors of the rainbow, to help you remember: Red. Orange. Yellow. Green. Blue. Indigo. Violet. It’s also your photo challenge theme for this week!

Positive Motivation Tip:  If we look, we will see rainbows everywhere… Life is full of colors.

    Trials, problems, and challenges always come our way. While they can drive us crazy, they’re meant to make life less boring and overcoming these hurdles make life sweeter. A rainbow for me, is a symbol of hope and joy – a reminder that life will not always be crappy, that I should always look forward to happier days. This is a lovely post, Elizabeth.

    I believe that colors are capable of changing our mood. I remember when I was younger, I would get sad when it rains because I can’t play outside. Whenever I see a rainbow, I become all cheerful again. I always thought it was because it used to be the symbol of that the rain is gone. But thinking about it now, subconsciously, the beauty of the colors in the rainbow amazes me and changes my mood; that after that dark rainy hour is a colorful sunshine.
