Yellow is the New White

Yellow is the New White

 

 

So I was walking around under one of the bridges in town (I know, it’s crazy. Brisbane has bridges???) when I spotted this.  It just seems so out of place – one lone yellow pillar, surrounded by white ones.  I still can’t quite figure out what makes this one so special.  Maybe they wanted to paint them all yellow but couldn’t be bothered.  Or maybe they left them all white and decided it needed a splash of colour somewhere, then painted one yellow and decided “bah good enough”.

I also love how it has those red arrows telling pedestrians and cyclists to stay to the left of the pillar.  Phew! Good thing it’s there, otherwise I might have tried to walk right into the river.  

Redundant signage is the best.
