Malian Woman

Photograph by Michael S. Lewis

Yellow evokes the shine of the sun and is found throughout nature and the man-made world as a color that commands attention. This highly visible hue is found on everything from bumblebees to school buses, traffic signs to highlighters. Misbehaving soccer players are shown yellow as a warning, and Tour de France racers know the man in yellow is the rider to beat.

Here, a woman in Diafarabe, Mali, holds her brilliant yellow scarf against a blue African sky. Her landlocked country is a desert land that was once a hub for ancient Saharan caravan routes.

Sunflowers like this one in Asheville, North Carolina, are prized for their beauty but also for their seeds and oil. The flowers are unusual among crops because they were first domesticated in North America.
