im not colorblind. ugh.
"Human color perception is dependent upon the interaction of all receptor cells with light, and this combination results in nearly trichromic stimulation. There are shifts in color sensitivity with variations in light levels, so that blue colors look relatively brighter in dim light and red colors look brighter in bright light. This effect can be observed by pointing a flashlight onto a color print, which will result in the reds suddenly appearing much brighter and more saturated. In recent years, consideration of human color visual sensitivity has led to changes in the long-standing practice of painting emergency vehicles, such as fire trucks and ambulances, entirely red. Although the color is intended for the vehicles to be easily seen and responded to, the wavelength distribution is not highly visible at low light levels and appears nearly black at night." -Florida State University optical science web site. http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/lightandcolor/humanvisionintro.html
dark red was a bad choice for all normal people to be able to see when the basket is shaded. they really stand out well when they're in the sun though. over half of the basket placements, however, are not in the sun.
