Elvis' Friend - Roy G. Biv

Roy. G. Biv is one of Elvis' best friends.  You can see Roy G. Biv in the picture below.

Roy G. Biv loves the rainbow.  In fact, his name is made up of the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.  

Whenever Elvis see his friend he likes to take a picture of him.  All of the colors of the rainbow and they're all in the photograph.  A photograph of Elvis' friend, Roy G. Biv.

Reflections

Elvis sometimes wonders if the things we like are a reflection of who we are.  

Do you enjoy peaceful scenes like the one below?  Or do you prefer pictures of raging rivers and sharp rocks?

Is there some relationship there?

Perhaps what we like is more a reflection of what we're not.  In other words, we like things that are different simply because they are different.  If we're Type A we might enjoy peaceful scenes.  If you're quiet and contemplative maybe you like pictures with more action.

Or is Elvis full of it?

Breakin' Some Eggs

Improvement in anything in life, photography included, requires breaking some eggs.

Eggs being a metaphor for; rules, guidelines, because we've always done it this way, because someone told you so.

Your photographic skills, and your life, will not improve until you push back against the status quo.  Try new things.  Be venturesome.  Take chances.
