The Importance of being Yellow

So today for the letter Y, I decided to blog about yellow and how important the color yellow really is.
As an added bonus I am going to keep this post short and sweet while ultimately revealing the most valuable yellow thing ever built in the entire history of the whole world. (At least in my honest and humble opinion ;).

Yellow is used for the color of traffic signs in order to warn you of upcoming situations or obstacles in the flow of traffic.



As you can see this is an important use of the color yellow. But an even more important use of yellow  is that it is the color most often used to depict the Sun, which is needed to sustain all forms of life.


Vincent Van Gogh, Sower against the Sun, 1888

So of course the Sun is indeed important and it does look good in yellow, But moving on, it is now time to unveil the most important use of the color yellow, ever. Get ready for it..... This is important.








So as you can see by the pics, the most important use of the color yellow ever is the yellow brick road leading to Emerald City and the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. How else would Dorothy ever have gotten home? Where else on earth would Lion get his courage, or Scarecrow his Brain or Tin Man his heart? And how would they have gotten there without the Yellow Brick Road?

TTYL and make it a good night,
Debbie

Awww! The cherished yellow brick road! This has to be one of the best films of all time! My friend and I visited the studio where the yellow brick road was in Hollywood. That was a feeling I will never forget. :)
