Geometry in blue
Every spring, after it finally got rid of snow, the city starts its 'Post-winter Rehabilitation' program. Fixing roads, trimming trees and bushes, removing litter from streets, refreshing paint on curbs... Regarding the latter: when I was a child, curbs used to be white only. Well, they were snow-white in May and faded to dirty grey by the end of August. Nowadays you can see side curbs of every possible colour: most common combination is black and white, in my neighbourhood it's green&yellow, I even saw pink&cian! But from my point of view, white and blue are the best for such a thing 'cause there something marine-like in this colour match.
What are curbs like in your area?
