Who is Roy G. Biv?

Why Roy G. Bivolo, of course! Rainbow Raider! Have you never heard of him? Me neither. For a massively extensive list of Flash enemies, Rainbow Raider amongst them, nickname Prism, click here. Not that interested? Thought not.

Thanks to Jude for informing me that in the UK schoolchildren learn Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain as the mnemonic for the colours of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

Forget comic books and history lessons and chill out with these stained glass windows from Canterbury Cathedral:

These disappointing photos were taken for this week’s photo challenge – ROY G. BIV –  with my little and easy to handle point-and-shoot camera as my right hand is still being uncooperative.

Magic in the Garden

Glass in the garden – sculpture eclipsing the plants. Hordes of people months into the exhibition sold tickets in time slots to avoid overcrowding. The Desert Botanical Garden is displaying Dale Chihuly’s phenomenal glass works set amongst the desert plants. Chihuly is the maestro of of avant-garde glass art. Always fascinated with glasshouses he displays within botanical gardens as well as 200 museums world-wide. The following photographs were taken from late afternoon starting at the garden entrance until after dark and finishing at the garden entrance.
