Color: Andrew Wyman

     A color can have many meanings, in both a literal and an abstract sense. Here we see a colored traffic light. We know that green means go and red means stop. Those two colors also have other meanings in our society as well. A person can be red in the face with embarrassment or be in a red fiery rage. Someone can also be green with envy.
     Colors sometimes tell us more than we realize. Sometimes, they tell us what to do or how to interact in a certain place. Other times, they give us a more emotional or visceral feeling about something. Without color, my world would be a vast empty space with little or no variety.
