 THE CAMERA'S BRUSH Our front and back yards are an artists museum. The front yard has an extended display and variety of color through the fall months in the form of a Sweet Gum tree. The Morning Glory Maple, in our back yard and pictured above, holds a solid green from Spring to late autumn after which all of the leaves turn a brilliant red. We have learned from prior years that it is then a matter of long hours or short days when the leaves will 'decorate' the yard. For too many years I missed the opportunity to take a picture and have recently fought the 'I'll take a picture tomorrow' thoughts, grabbing my camera and standing beneath its branches for a few pictures. Of course I can't just take a picture. The image has to be messed with. I have recently come across a set of image filters from Topaz Labs and have marveled in the creativity they afford, particularly since I have no talent on which I could call upon to paint. The beauty of a prime lens, fast glass and the short focal length disguise the surrounding neighborhood structures, adding a bit of beauty to the picture.  "There ought to be gardens for all months in the year, in which, severally, things of beauty may be then in season." - Sir Francis Bacon
