Yin and Yang
Photography isn't my strong suit, but here's where I did good. This might be the best photo I've taken on this blog, having gotten the sizing, angle, texture and lighting just right. The subject is a handsome button that deserves no less. It's a yin-yang masterstroke in espresso and creamed corn. Both sides are Bakelite and both sides are in mint condition. The man who sold me this button told me that it came from a coat that was once owned by actor, Danny Kaye who's first film, Moon Over Manhattan, was released in 1935.
