Triple Yellow

Down by the Anheuser-Busch brewery, a large truck yard holds the trailers which bring huge amounts of supplies. Looks like AB has a contract with Yellow Freight to haul all their stuff. Why Yellow? The color is traditionally associated with sunlight, egg yolks, jaundice and, to us English speakers (maybe it's just Americans), cowardice. No positive associations with beer. But of course you don't see Yellow Freight trucks in Budweiser ads, just the Clydesdales.

How can your write "naked dancers" for tomorrow's blog and expect people to concentrate on today's photo?? LOL

To answer your question about the buildings behind the rock, I'm not sure. You could be right. I pour over all the photos I took from that shoot and I think you are right. The tall white building on the right is the GM Building and the green roof building next to it is the Sherry Nethederlander Building.
