On the button

I love this photo.

I love the colors, the composition, the lighting.

It even fits the Labor Day theme.

Think of all the work that went into making each button. Think of the hands that sewed these buttons onto shirts, blouses, pants and shorts…and then sewed them back on when they fell off.

Think of the craftsmen who utilized these buttons for all kinds of other projects. Think of the photographer who conceived and shot this very photo.

A lot of labor went into these buttons.

But looking at them takes no effort at all.
