Travel Theme: Yellow, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Yellow.

New York City’s yellow taxis are world-famous.

We’ve always wondered what it would be like to have one pass right over you. It could easily happen, in the dense rush-hour traffic. After all, they have schedules to keep. And we do hear them on the radio referring to us as “speed bumps”…

Here one of our friends is trying to get a feel for it ahead of time ;-)

    There is no fun in being a speed bump to fast motorised craft!

  11. fun post – and the photo under the boat – ha ha

    when we were in NYC a couple of years ago, we went to the newly opened aero store in times square. we were there hours after it opened – and their cool shirts included some black ones with the colorful subway directives – and then they had shirts that were all yellow – with the cab checks and stuff – and so we got free shirts and bought some too –

    then later, we were walking around in a different area of the city and a folks were saying, “tourists!” Or just looking at us – and then we realized it was my solid yellow taxi t-shirt – nothing screams out of towner more than a lady wearing a shirt that adds to the ubiquitous yellow and black everyone already sees. lol….

    anyhow, hope you are never run over as a speed bump!!
