Colour Swatch #FDBC5D

I know it may be a few shades darker than the real yellow jersey but when presented with such a bold yellow what else could I possibly name it?

July is upon us and that means we will be consumed by Le Tour de France for the next 3 weeks. It also means that I will get no sense out of the cyclist, that he will be sleep deprived and that almost all conversation will have something to do with jersey colours (green, yellow or polka dot), the GC, team tactics and whether or not an Australian can win again this year.

My flickr finds are from top: Honey 3 by Björn Söderqvist, Coração partido by Marina Wajnsztejn, Hanging Bokeh Bulb by Mike Bitzenhofer

P.S. – you can also select my colour maillot jaune or #FDBC5D to see it on my ColourLovers page. Are you a ColourLover? Let’s be friends.
