Follow the yellow brick road...

Most of you guessed that the most recent Photoionary had something to do with footpaths (aka sidewalks).
Well you were half right!
What you saw was a close up shot of the yellow blind footpath rubber bricks used to guide sight-impaired people along the crowded footpaths in Japan.
They also make a nice parking boundary for bikes!

    Neat! We have something similar at the edge of the metro tracks, so blind people don't fall off the edge.

    Surprisingly, they only installed it within the last few years!

    Instead of following the yellow brick road, people can follow the yellow rubber road. :P

    Oh dear, I can't believe I missed out of photoionary! And I would have guessed it, too! (Maybe...)
