Brown or Yellow?

You call it!

You call it!

As a first or second grader, I would have been highly concerned that some adult made a serious mistake when painting the sign on the school bus. Surely big people who can spell all those hard words and then paint them on buses know the difference between the colors brown and yellow?

Life is not always as it seems – especially when you are six.

But even when you are a big people, too!

  1. lol

    that picture, btw?

    It’s marketable. It looks like the kind of photo commonly used in magazines and sales media. The distinctive lines, the perfectly cloud-mottled blue of the sky behind the perfect yellowness of the school bus? It’s like, too perfect.

  2. Well, I’m confused – is it brown or yellow? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I enjoyed this post. My kind of humor.

    LOL…..great spotting and nicely captured.

  4. You made me laugh!!!! Maybe I’m going color-blind..but it sure looks yellow to me. Love the graphic simplicity and bold colors.

  5. I agree with amuirin—an exceptional photo. Cool.

  6. Well observed… and a great shot, too โ€” obviously thought about the composition and not just snapped it

  7. LOL… A perspective, for sure. Even after the age of six, life is not always as it seems. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Very interesting observation. You are right though.

    Wonderful photo.
