Photo Journal: Double yellow

A "Doctor Yellow" Shinkansen bullet train speeds past a field of sunflowers in Ogaki, Gifu Prefecture, on Aug. 25, 2017. From 1990 onward, the Ogaki Municipal Government has set aside fallow fields in the city as sunflower fields, and has planted 100,000 sunflowers in the Hiramachi district of Ogaki pictured above. Just after 2 p.m. on Aug. 25, a Central Japan Railway Co. "Doctor Yellow" track inspection bullet train passed by the field -- attracting the attention of numerous photographers nearby, who had been waiting eagerly with their cameras for the "double yellow" appearance.
