    From a wonderful road trip in 2008, regional museum in an old bank bldg., Deadwood, South Dakota. I saw a group of pheasant corsages made by Mrs. John Goering. I couldn't get a good photo through the display case and wrote the museum later for a photo and permission to share. (I wish they would have taken a close-up of one, oh well) The curator told me these were made for charity dances circa 50's-60's. Gorgeous hand made corsages from pheasants feathers of the area. Each one unique and each about 3" to 4" - delicate.

    I tried to enlarge one of them....not a great picture.

    Picture 3 roaming around the park just happened to present itself later that day at Mt. Rushmore.

      Thank you Bijou! I really liked them. All the time and creativity she spent on each one :-)

      Thanks friends for loving these handmade pins: Bonnie, Kevin, Thomas, Mike, Fort, Judy, Peggy and Ken - I posted this for you after seeing the fans!

      Bijou - I meant to say - a friend always challenged me to create interest in the shot. Anyone can edit (sadly, I'm not very good at editing :-) I didn't do anything to the Mt. Rushmore picture. However, a true professional would have captured some of the grey texture of the 2 rocks which my point and shoot couldn't.

      It's your work, your feeling, your eye, your moment, your capture. That's why it's perfect as it is!
