Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G. BIV

ROY G. BIV?  Really? Took us by surprise, too.  But it’s this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress with an acronym for all the colors of the rainbow:  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.

With the motto Hope Floats, members of the Knoxville Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) gather for a group photo at their tent at their sponsored event : KARM Dragon Boat Festival.

And right on target, coinciding with this week’s challenge was none other than the KARM (Knoxville Area Rescue Ministries) Dragon Boat Festival on June 20th, 2015.  With every color of the rainbow on someone’s back, team members from area businesses or organizations became in-sync paddling units striving to win bragging rights as the best rowers in town.

But the real technicolor winners were the ready-to-outdo-anyone drummers barking commands to pace their colleagues.  And, oh yeah, a few spectators, too.  It was ROY G. BIV heaven.

    Very nicely done. As much as I love photographs of the outdoors, people are still the most interestig subjects.

    • You’re so right. It’s the people that make the scene so interesting. Unless, of course, you’re photographing the Grand Canyon or something naturally majestic. But when I come to think about it, I like people in those photos, too!
