    Nice shot, Marjorie. I tried this shot many times...just couldn't get it right. You nailed it!

    Thanks, Jimmy. After I uploaded the picture, I used the auto-adjust feature of Windows Photo Gallery (the poor person's answer to Photoshop). Usually it's not helpful at all, but for this picture, it made the contrast pop, which made the button more visible. Looking at this now, I'm amazed again at the skill of the sculptor -- the folds in the fabric look so fluid and soft -- how did he create that out of metal?

    Compressed sand molding....I think.

    You know Marjorie. Just now I walked over during my lunch hour and try to see that missing button, but just can't see it. I think may be the sun angle ... Hmm... myabe need a better lens!

    I couldn't really see the button while I was there -- it was much easier to see when I looked at the photo afterwards! It can't be my lens ... I was just using my tiny camera. As I was saying above, I think increasing the contrast after uploading the photo helped a lot to make the button more visible. Also, I cropped the photo too. I agree that the sun angle would make a difference too... but we were there about noon yesterday, right? Hmm ... maybe early evening would be best?
