The Promised 'Yellow' Blog Post Assignment

April 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

So last week we teased you with a future photog assignment: Yellow.

Yellow Hydrant Yes, it's a fire hydrant. A brief foray into Wikipedia informs me that fire hydrants in the US are commonly painted yellow for quick identification. You may have heard of hydrants being called fire plugs. Interesting story, that. Again, Wikipedia says that originally, fire fighters would dig down to the wooden water mains and quickly bore a hole to access the water. Then they would plug it back up to use for future fires.

Fire hydrants have been use artistically as well. Do an image search and you'll come up with dogs, Winnie-the-Pooh, Eyore,  Mario, gumball machines, American flags, Huckleberry Hound (I sense a dog theme). What unusual fire hydrants have you seen?
