Yellow stands for Safety

Yellow grabs your attention and therefore is used most often in safety applications such as changes in sidewalk elevations, low clearance items, etc. It is also our standard for caution.

I bet my regular readers were wondering how I would get a train picture in on this! This was taken on the Norfolk Southern Railroad in Canton, NC.

Ah, yes, that standard shade of yellow used nationwide (worldwide, too?) to indicate you should watch out. Was this started by Caterpillar brand equipment? I wonder...

If anyone could get yellow on this and include trains you could! I like it and I like the framing of the image Mike.

I like the composition on this one.

That is the wrong place to be unless you need to be there. Wow. I can imagine the big squeeze. Nice photo. Dramatic.

Wonderful photo!
It is so interesting to see the yellow subjects people find - this is great.

Great shot!

My husband's an Ozark boy. I moved him up here to the north. Poor guy. We're headed that way in May and the probably again sometime later in the year.

We lived in the area for about 6 six and though it took me a LONG time to get used to it, I can say I truly miss it. Maybe one day we'll be able to live both places. :)

I'm not sure why I didn't think "safety" with this project, but you're right. My first thoughts with all my yellow pics is "cheer"--like sunshine, it just brightens the day!
