Photo Essay: Yellow

Yellow is the brightest color the human eye can see. Sunflowers. Sand. Ducklings. Daffodils. Tulips. Bananas. Gold. Autumn leaves. Yellow is also the color of sunshine and summer. It gets attention – just think of street signs and taxicabs. And the original smiley is yellow, too.


What does the color yellow mean?



Optimism, cheerfulness, sunshine, imagination, but also danger, betrayal, jealousy, disease and warning. Yellow is often associated with joy, intellect and energy. But it’s also a cautionary color used in life vests or police cordoning tape.



In color psychology, yellow represents youth, joy and happy feelings. It’s the color of communication, and it helps us focus and remember information. But have you heard about “feeling yellow”? Yellow is also associated with being envy.



Shades of yellow are visually unappealing because they become dingy.


Do you like yellow? What does it represent for you?
