Day 199
Yellow Pig Day

National Yellow Pig Day on July 17 honors the unique attributes of the number 17 and its significance to mathematics. 

I bet you thought you had to find a yellow pig, didn't you? Good luck with that!  17 is a prime number that has significance in mathematics. It is the sum of the first four prime numbers - 2, 3, 5, and 7. A prime number is a number that can only be divided by 1 and by itself. Several studies have shown that when people are asked to choose a number between 1 and 20, a majority of people choose the number 17.

So today... look for the number 17. It is not as random as you think. Here are some ideas: Find it on a milepost sign.  Look for a word with 17 letters. Create a flatlay using 17 items. Photograph a person who is 17 years old. You can approach this anyway your mind works. I'm looking forward to the diversity in the gallery today!
